Cake Balls

 Cake Balls

1 box cake mix
1 (16 oz) can of ready made frosting
Wax paper
Baking sheet
White or chocolate candy coating / bark coating

You can use any flavor cake mix and frosting. I used cherry chip mix and cherry icing for the picture.
Bake cake as directed on box for 13x9 inch cake.

After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into a large bowl.

With a large spoon, mix thoroughly with about 3/4 of the can of frosting. You won't need the rest.

Roll mixture into quarter size cake balls and place on a wax paper covered baking sheet.

Place cake balls in the freezer for about 15 minutes to firm up. Then transfer to the refrigerator to keep chilled and avoid freezing. They tend to be easier to work with the colder they are.

Melt chocolate candy coating in a heat-proof plastic bowl so that the coating is at least four inches deep for easier dipping. Melt in the microwave in 30 second intervals on low, stirring in between. Repeat until melted and smooth.

Remove a couple of cake balls from the refrigerator at a time to work with.

Roll balls in chocolate candy coating and lay on wax paper until firm. (Use a spoon to dip and roll in chocolate and then tap off extra.)

Keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.

If you have never heard of Bakerella you should check out the website. It is amazing what she can do. Here is the link.
