Chocolate Covered Cake Balls

296655_10150294151604164_2424184_nI absolutely LOVE these. They are so amazing. We had them at our wedding (see pictures) and people told us we could sell them 🙂 You can do any combination of cake/frosting for these, this is more of an instructional post on how to put these together.

1 9×13 Cake (I used a box mix)
16 oz Frosting of choice (I used one batch of the cream cheese frosting in Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World)
12 oz Semi sweet baker’s chocolate or white chocolate (you can use chocolate chips, they just don’t melt/coat as well)
Parchment or wax paper

Cook cake according to package directions. Remove from heat and cool completely. When cooled, crumble the cake into a large bowl. With your fingers, thoroughly mix the crumbled cake and frosting together.

Roll mixture into 1-inch balls and place on a cookie sheet. Chill for 2-3 hours.

Melt chocolate in a double boiler until liquid. Remove balls from the fridge. Using a spoon, dip/roll the cake balls in the chocolate and then place on parchment or wax paper. Tap off excess chocolate on the side of the boiler before placing on the wax paper. Keep the chocolate in the double boiler and the heat on low to keep the chocolate liquidy. Place balls in the fridge to harden the outer shell before serving. Makes about 30 balls.
