So I finally broke down and made the ever famous
Everyone was raving about them over at
2 peas in a bucket scrapbooking board
I kept thinking, how could they be that great?
It's just a cake mix, with icing dipped in chocolate
what is so great about that?
oh my, they are divine!
The cake balls you see above were made with german chocolate cake mix
and german chocolate, coconut icing!!!!!!
This is how easy they are to make~
1. Buy any flavor cake mix and bake the cake according to the directions on the box.
2. After you have baked the cake and let it cool, you crumble the cake into pieces in a large bowl.
3. Pick any flavor icing to go with the cake above and mix it in the big bowl with the crumbled
cake mix. YES this is pretty messy. Make sure you wash your hands really
good before starting because you are going to mix the cake with the cake icing with
4. After you have mixed the cake and the icing really good, form the mixture into
bite sized balls and place on wax paper on a cookie sheet.
5. Put toothpicks in each cake ball and place in the fridge for a couple of hours or put
in the freezer for at least one hour.
6. Use a double broiler or fondue to melt Almond bark - chocolate or vanilla, you choose!
7. Dip each cake ball into the melted, yummy chocolate and return to cookie sheet to dry.
8. You can leave them plain or add nuts, sprinkles etc. before they dry.
I kept mine in the fridge because I like my cake balls chilled.. OR you can leave them out
in a cake plate or dish to enjoy!
Another good variety for Christmas would be to use a
red velvet cake mix with cream cheese icing and dip into white almond bark!
