Default NSBR~ Cake Balls

I am making something new today! Its a total RAVE among some of my friends, but I'm a little late joing the game. I'm going to make Cake Balls! Apparently thay are to die for, and I thought I'd give them a try for the Youth Group tonight.

Cake Balls

1 package cake mix
1 can of frosting
1 package of chocolate almond bark (Can use semi-sweet baking chocolate too)
wax paper

1. Cook cake mix according to directions on the box. 2. Let cake cool. 3. Crumble cake in a bowl. 4. Mix approximately 1/3 container of frosting until smooth dough forms 5. Roll cake into balls, packing tightly 6. Melt almond bark 7. Drop balls into chocolate until coated. (I use a fork to lift balls out of chocolate so excess chocolate can drain through the tongs on the fork) 8. Place balls on wax paper to harden.

You can use any combination of frosting and cake mix. The cake should make approximately 60 balls. You can make the cake ahead of time and freeze the balls before dipping into the chocolate.

To make festive - you can put candy bits on top while chocolate is cooling. For Christmas, I am putting crushed candy cane bits. For Valentine's day you could use crushed ret hots....etc.

Today I'm trying a chocolate/chocolate/chocolate combination. But I've just heard from a good friend that she loved how her Spice cake/vanilla frosting/white chocolate combo turned out.

Well this is cool because I'm having a ball themed birthday party for my Max tomorrow and I'm doing a bunch of ball shaped foods so I think I'll try this! It sounds a little rich for me but I bet it will be a big hit with the kids. Hmmm... a cream cheese frosting would be good.
Thanks, Andrea!

Step #4... you mix the frosting in WITH the crumbled cake. Sorry, it's probably a stupid question... just want to make sure I get it right.

Mine are finished! Wonderful and I could eat all of them lol.

I used milk chocolate chips with a little crisco in a double broiler. I was too impatient go to the store and get semi-sweet but they still turned out fabulous

Thanks again!

I think these would be very yummy as an orange cake - chocolate frosting combo...Might have to give that a whirl. Thanks for the inspiration.
