ADVENT TREAT WEEK 3....CAKE BALLS

This is a great recipe for the kids to help out with.

Cake Balls

Pick a cake mix and frosting you like that go together...I chose Devil's Food cake and Cream Cheese icing.

Bake cake according to package

While still hot...crumble in a bowl w/a hand mixer until fine....

Mix in 3/4 to full can of frosting and mix (about consistency of paste)

Chill in fridge for about 2 hours

Put some wax paper on a baking sheet and using a melon baller or ice cream scoop (I used a small one) scoop out some mix and roll balls in your hands (about 1.5" or smaller)

Freeze for about 6 hours

Melt some candy wafers and dip balls in melted chocolate...

Work in small batches...

Store room temperature since the fridge will make them sweat...(yuck)

Enjoy! The kids will have a blast...

Next I'm going to try strawberry cake mix and strawberry frosting....Kate wants to try the confetti cake mix!

These look yummy. Too bad I don't have a cake mix or we could make them today on this random "Ice Day"!! I got Claire's hat when we were in Colorado this summer, but we can pass it down!!
