These are the cake balls I made for my dear friend's baby shower... This was my 2nd attempt at making these... I think only half of the balls made it to the shower!!!
1 package cake mix, any flavor
1 (16 ounce) container frosting, any flavor
1 block chocolate (24oz) flavored confectioners coating (almond bark)
Prepare the cake mix according to package directions using any of the recommended pan sizes. When cake is done, crumble while SLIGHTLY warm into a large bowl, and stir in the frosting until well blended. Put in freezer for 15-20 minutes or else you will have a gooey mess on your hands! Roll cake mixture into balls. I made mine about 1 inch in diameter. Freeze the cake balls for one hour or overnight.
Melt candy coating in heavy saucepan at a very low temperature, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove cake balls from freezer and dip the balls into the melted coating using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper and decorate with sprinkles, nuts, drizzled coating, what ever you want! Go crazy on your balls!!! Decorate before the coating sets.
You can use any combination of cake/frosting... My favorite is Red Velvet cake/Cream Cheese frosting dipped in chocolate or vanilla coating. My husband likes Lemon cake/Lemon frosting dipped in chocolate...
Pop a ball in your mouth and enjoy!
