Easter. Beautiful colored eggs. Excited kids hunting eggs. The Easter bunny. And bright, delicious carrot cake bites. For some reason, carrot cake and Easter go together for me. Maybe it’s because bunnies eat carrots?
These are easy to make, even though it takes a little time. Since it uses boxed cake mix (with a few adjustments to make it taste homemade), you don’t have to spend the time making a homemade cake. Just to crumble it up. I always hate doing that! All that effort to crumble up a delicious cake.

Carrot Cake Bites with Cake Mix
You’ll probably have extra frosting left over. My husband freezes it and then sneaks spoonfuls when he thinks I’m not looking. It’s similar to super-rich ice cream.
Another thing I love about this recipe? The sprinkles cover up any little imperfections in dipping! So if you haven’t made cake bites before, don’t worry. We’re not going for that perfect, practically-impossible-to-achieve thin coating. Just dip, tap, and sprinkle away.
I should note those little round sprinkles like to hop. And bounce. And roll. All over the kitchen floor. I highly suggest putting a bowl under the cake bite before decorating with sprinkles.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe. Hop on over to my site to check out my free Easter printables including a great Easter treasure hunt.
