If you love margaritas, then you’ll enjoy these delicious round balls of goodness.
The bite-size margarita balls are super easy to make and fantastic to serve at Easter brunch, Cinco de Mayo celebrations and enjoy poolside during the summer. Of course, you have to make sure to keep these boozy cakes away from the children.
First of all, to make the Boozy Margarita Cake Balls you’ll need to bake a cake. You will need to add eggs, oil, tequila, triple sec, lime zest and juice to the cake mix and cook it.
Second, once the cake bakes and cools break it into crumbs.
Next, place the cake in a bowl and add the buttercream frosting to it, along with tequila, triple sec, powdered sugar, and lime zest.
After the cake ball mixture is mixed together cover the bowl and chill it in the fridge.
Once the cake mixture is chilled roll it into 1 inch balls, place on a cookie sheet and freeze for 45 minutes.
