These I believe have taken this country by storm. There is a gal here in the Dallas area that opened her own shop just to sell these things, check it out, http://www.cakeballs.com/. This is my first try and I think they turned out beautifully a few more times and I ought to be a pro myself! With Valentines Day in a few short days I may have to make more of these.
These beauties are so simple.... they're one of those things that make you go hmmmmm.
This is what I made today, but the combinations are endless.
1 (18.25 oz) box Red Velvet cake mix
1 (16 oz) can prepared cream cheese frosting
Almond Bark candy coating
Bake cake as directed and cool.
While still slightly warm crumble cake into a large bowl with a hand mixer to a fine texture.
Mix in 3/4 to 1 can frosting (according to your taste) blend into a paste. Using a melon baller or your hands shape into 1-1/2 inch balls.
Place in freezer for a couple hours, then coat them with melted almond bark flavor of your choice.
