Hmmm Cake Balls...

Thanks to THIS thread at DST today I made cake balls. What are cake balls you ask? Well, Im glad you did because I didn't know either. So I googled for a recipe and found a very easy one at Allrecipes.com. Turns out I had all the ingredients already in the house! That never happens to me. Every time I want to do something fun, I have to plan ahead. But not today!

I thought it would be a fun project for me and the little boys to do together and it was. However, we started this at 3 pm and I JUST now finished and it's 7:45 pm. I did take abreak to cook and eat dinner.

Anyway, what are cake balls? Here is the recipe:

1 (18.25 ounce) package cake mix
1 (16 ounce) container prepared frosting
1 (3 ounce) bar chocolate flavored confectioners coating


Bake cake as directed. Let cool for about 15 minutes, crumble into a large bowl while still warm.

Stir in container of frosting and mix well. Form small balls using either your hands or a melon baller. Place in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes so they are weell chilled.

Meanwhile, melt chocolate stirring constantly. Use a toothpick and a large spoon to coat balls. Place on waxed paper to set. You could even do muffin cups if you wanted.

My notes: I used a package of chocolate chips, but I found this was not enough chocolate so I added in some pure chocolate truffles I had in the house LOL! Hmmmm yummy.
