            CAKE BALLS

            1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
            1 (16 ounce) container prepared chocolate frosting ( I used Duncan Hines..not whipped)
            1 (16 ounce) bar chocolate flavored confectioners coating or almond bark (I use more)

            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 (into tiny crumbs) 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,(or a double boiler) stirring occasionally until smooth.
            3. Use a melon ball or small scoop to form balls of the chocolate cake mixture. Place on a cookie sheet in the freezer for several minutes to make dipping easier. Dip the balls in chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper to set.

            NOTE: This recipe is very versatile and heavily addictive. You can mix and match cake and icing flavors as well as the chocolate coatings. If you want to go the extra mile, cake balls can be rolled in nuts, sprinkles, coconut, etc. or double dipped in white and dark chocolates. Chocolate confectioners' coating is also called Almond Bark in some stores. If the balls are not frozen/cold, your finished product will not have a smooth coating. It will be lumpy and full of crumbs. These are easy enough that someone who doesn't cook can make them without difficulty. Many people commented that they taste like donut holes, only better.

            Variations/flavors:

            White cake mix and mint chocolate chip icing - Dipped in chocolate confectioners coating.
            French vanilla cake with white chocolate almond icing. Dipped in chocolate confectioners coating.
            Red velvet with cream cheese icing and vanilla confectioners coating.
            Red velvet with cream cheese icing dipped into milk chocolate coating.
            Chocolate cake, milk chocolate icing, dipped into chocolate bark.
            Lemon cake with lemon frosting and dip them in whit chocolate.
            Lemon cake mixed in white chocolate chips and lemon frosting, dipped in white chocolate.
            Spice cake with cream cheese frosting and coated them with white chocolate coating.
            Cherry chip cake mix and cream cheese frosting dipped in white chocolate.
            Fudge cake, mixed in peppermint chips and fudge frosting. Dip in dark chocolate.
            Chocolate fudge cake mix and coconut pecan frosting dipped into chocolate.
            Chocolate cake, butter cream icing, and dark chocolate coating.
            Chocolate cake/chocolate icing and dipped into raspberry/chocolate chips are melted with a bit of oil.
            German chocolate cake mix with coconut pecan frosting & dipped in melted semi sweet chocolate chips.
            Strawberry with vanilla frosting, dipped in chocolate.
            Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, dipped in white almond bark.
            Chocolate cake, chocolate icing and Andes candy bits. If you like Girl Scout Thin Mints you will love these.

              fabulous list! I've made these a bunch of times too. Just recently I added Eyeball Cake Balls and Pumpkin Cake Balls to FamilyCorner. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post the link, so I am adding it here. But if it's not allowed I apologize and just delete it out! I would have pasted them here, but due to first rights and the articles being new I can only link to them:

                            OK, I am sitting here laughing to myself, thinking of the SNL skit with the Schweaty Balls.
