Yummy & EASY Cake Ball Recipe

For Valentines Day we made these delish little cake is the so easy recipe
~the ball is the one on the top....the others are covered oreos~

1 box cake mix, bake the cake according to the directions on the box
1 tub of frosting
Almond Bark "candy" coating or Ambrosia Chocolate, whichever you have

gel food coloring for almond bark
a little veg shortening to thin the almond bark - I like a thin coating
a cookie scoop - it makes the "balling" part SO easy!

-make the cake according to the box, let cool then crumble it up into a bowl
-add 3/4 of the frosting container.....use the remainder for graham crackers or late night snacking!
- Mix it well, it will get doughy
-scoop the dough out unto wax paper lined cookie sheets, cover then let chill overnight in the fridge, or if you are in a hurry let them cool in the freezer for about 30 minutes
-once they are chilled melt your bark, I like to thin it a bit with the shortening and then add a little colorant - this time it was pink.
- I used a slotted spoon to dunk the balls in the bark, then the slots in the spoon drained the extra right back in to the bowl
-sprinkle with jimmies if you'd like.

If it's warm out you can keep them in the fridge until they are ready to eat ....they keep well in an air tight container
