Cake Balls

One of the treats we made for my sister's open house after her wedding was cake balls.  They look and taste scrumptious.  Here is the recipe:

1 box cake mix
1 tub coordinating frosting
Melting Chocolate

1. Make the cake according to mix directions.
2. When its cool, crumble it up.  Then mash the cake crumbles with the tub of frosting.
3. Cool in refrigerator or freezer.
4. When mixture is cold, roll into teaspoon sized balls.
5. Using toothpicks, dip in the melted chocolate.  Pull out toothpick and dab hole with small amount of chocolate. Embellish with white chocolate streaks, sprinkles or serve plain.

This recipe makes about 75 small balls.   We tried chocolate cake with chocolate frosting (our favorite combo), white cake with white frosting and red velvet with white frosting.   The Ghiradelli Chocolate Candy Making and Dipping Bars worked the best for dipping the balls. We tried almond bark but it was not smooth enough for easy dipping.  It also didn't taste nearly as good!
