Cake Balls

These are fun to make and are perfect for any occasion - I can always think of a perfectly good reason to make these!!! There are quite a few variations on how to make them, but I've found the best one here (thanks to my friend Lindsey who introduced these little delights!) Here's the basic recipe, but click on the website for all sorts of tips and different flavors to try! These are very simple, but time-consuming. However, you can begin the process before the event. For example, I needed the cake balls on Saturday, and so I baked the cake on Thursday morning, chilled in fridge all day, rolled into balls and froze that night, and dipped the mixture in the almond bark on Friday and they were ready for Saturday! They do not need to be refrigerated once made. The ones I made were strawberry cake with strawberry frosting and chocolate coating; chocolate cake (devil's food), vanilla frosting, and vanilla coating. Hobby Lobby sells the colored coating and have all sorts of good colors.
Cake Balls
1 box cake
1 can frosting
almond bark/candy coating

1. Bake the cake according to directions.

2. While warm, crumble the cake in a mixing bowl with a fork, and then use a hand mixer to make into an even finer mixture.

3. Mix in 3/4 can frosting.

4. Chill mixture for 2 hours.

5. Roll into balls - about 1" to 1 1/2 "- and freeze for at least 6 hours.

6. Dip in almond bark and set on wax paper to cool. If decorating with sprinkles, decorate as soon as it's dipped so it can "set" in the bark.

7. Enjoy your creation!
