Bite Sized Cake Balls

Bite Sized Cake Balls (Family Corner)
I, too, make this yummy recipe for bite sized cake balls that you had in the Charmingly Chocolate newsletter this month.
- 1 box cake mix
- 1 container frosting
- 1 - 24 oz package of almond bark or confectioner's coating (you can even just use chocolate chips and a tablespoon of shortening)
- waxed paper lined tray
- contrasting drizzle (optional) - colored candy melts, white chocolate, butterscotch or peanut butter chips
- Bake up your favorite homemade cake mix or just follow the directions on a box mix.
- As soon as you remove the cake from the oven, tip it out into a large bowl and break it up into pieces/crumbs.
- Stir in the entire container of frosting (or 2 cups of your own homemade blend) until thoroughly combined.
- Roll cake mixture into balls and place on waxed paper lined tray. Place tray in refrigerator for 2 hours to allow balls to chill.
- Melt your chosen chocolate chips, bark, or coating. You can use a double boiler or melt in a microwave safe bowl in 1 minute increments, stirring each time. Don't overheat your chocolate!
- Dip chilled balls into the melted chocolate and return to wax paper lined tray to set. You may need to remelt the chocolate part way through if it starts to get too thick.
- If you'd like some added decoration, use the contrasting colors to melt and drizzle across the tops.
The recipe was given to me a number of years ago from my husbands aunt. She called them "Fronkies." I'm not sure where she got the name but...........anyway, I wanted to share some variations.
My sister-in-law and I have made the choc. cake mix and have added strawberry flavoring, we also have added maraschino cherries as well.
I have made a white cake and added mint flavoring to it, this one a lot of people have liked the best.
One year my sister-in-law and I have added peach schnapps to the white cake mix and choc. cake mix. They were so good! Hope this gives you more ideas for your own bite sized cake balls!
These are excellent ideas for other versions of the bite sized cake balls! I love them. They all sound so yummy it's pretty hard to decide which ones to try first. :-)
I went ahead and included the recipe above for those who don't get the newsletter (what were they thinking?).
Thanks for giving us more "food for thought." Grin!
If anyone else has some other variations to this simple recipe, add them here!
