Cake Balls

Boy were these things a hit! These things are amazing! I was totally impressed, and probably shouldn't have had as many as I had. They were a huge hit at our youth 2:42 group.

Adapted from Joelen's Culinary Adventures - let me go ahead and give a shout out to Joelen, she has an awesome food blog with giveaways and scrumptious recipes. Check her blog out if you haven't yet! This recipe is good if you have extra cake left over and you don't want to waste it! Who wants to waste sweets?!

1 box of cake mix (your preference)
1 can of icing (your preference)
Chocolate bark, melted

Prepare the cake as the box says. Then mix the icing and cake together (after cake has cooled). Using a small scoop, form small balls of mashed cake. Roll each ball with your hands to form a more uniform balls. Melt chocolate according to package directions and place melted chocolate in a small bowl. Carefully place ball of cake into the melted chocolate and coat completely. Remove coated cak ball and place on parchement(wax) paper to harden.

I did this once when my cake fell apart while icing. Frustrated. Just mixed it all together and made cookies. Didn't think of making choco covered balls. Great!!
