Cake Balls


*Have you seen my smocked bonnet giveaway [2]? How about MaddieLynn’s blog makeover [3]?

MaddieLynn [4] attended a baby shower where she had a delicious dessert. She asked for the recipe and came home with “cake balls”.

She has already made these and they really are delicious. The only problem I have with them is the name. I think they should be called Orbs of Goodness, or Scrumptious Spheres, or Royal Round R…

Well, I can’t think of any other names, but there has to be something better to call them than cake balls.

In any case, here is the recipe.

Cake Balls [5]

1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
1 (16 ounce) container prepared chocolate frosting
1 (3 ounce) bar chocolate flavored confectioners coating

1. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions using any of the recommended pan sizes. When cake is done, crumble while warm into a large bowl, and stir in the frosting until well blended.

2. Melt chocolate coating in a glass bowl in the microwave, or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth.

3. Use a melon baller or small scoop to form balls of the chocolate cake mixture. Dip the balls in chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper to set.
