Cake Balls!

I have been a fan of Bakerella's blog for awhile. Her cake pops look amazing and she is always coming up with new decoration ideas. I'm not so good at the decoration side of things but I still wanted to try making these just for the taste and the novelty of them. I don't normally like to cook with cake mix or canned frosting, but I thought it was worth a try and I didn't have enough time to make everything from scratch. They were GOOD and everyone seemed pretty intrigued by them! I highly recommend them!

Cake Balls

Ingredients (makes about 50)
1 box of cake mix, cooked as directed for a 13x9 cake
1 can frosting (16oz)
1 package white chocolate bark (I used about 900g)
1 package regular chocolate bark

When cake is completely cooled, crumble into a large bowl. I used chocolate cake mix but you can really use whatever flavour you like.

Mix throughly with the can of frosting. I used vanilla, but again, use whichever flavour you want. It is easiest to mix it with your fingers.

Roll mixture into balls that are roughly 1 inch in diameter and lay on baking sheet.

Chill for several hours or freeze for 60minutes.

Melt the white chocolate in the microwave (this chocolate is best worked with in batches, as it tends to set quite quickly).

Roll balls in the chocolate, tapping off excess. Place balls on wax paper until chocolate has set. They may need a second layer of chocolate.

Melt the regular chocolate bark and drizzle over the balls with a spoon. These do not need to be refrigerated, but they can be if you would prefer them cold.
