Cake Balls

Ok, these were even better than I thought.  Jake has eaten at least two every night.  That is definitely a sign of a great dessert because Jake does not have much of a sweet tooth.  Which makes me eat less sweets, but also makes me feel even more guilty when I eat them without him... it's a terrible mess, let me tell you.

What you need:
  • A box of cake mix (I used red velvet because it's lucious and I rarely make it)
  • A can of frosting (cream cheese was delicious BTW)
  • A bag of white chocolate chips (or semi-sweet, or baker's... but I don't recommend milk chocolate; it is much to sweet for this sugary ball of goodness)
  • Lollipop sticks (optional)
  • Sprinkles (optional)
What you do:
  • Bake cake as directed in a 9x13 inch pan.  (Make sure the cake is completely baked.  A gooey cake would ruin the whole thing)
  • When the cake has cooled completely, crumble it up into little pieces and add to a large bowl (poor cake)
  • Dump the WHOLE can of frosting into the large bowl, and mix with your fingers until it's combined and sticky (If you have small children around, this would be the perfect job for them!)
  • Roll into small balls about the size of a big bouncy ball.  You should be able to make about 40 or more.
  • Refridgerate or freeze for several hours until the balls feel firm
  • Melt the chocolate chips, then dip the balls in and cover them with chocolate.  Quickly cover it with sprinkles before it dries. Then set it on waxed paper
  • If you decide to add the stick, make sure it gets covered in the chocolate too; otherwise, the cake ball will fall off.
When the chocolate dries, serve and be famous!

From my tiny kitchen to yours!
