Yum. yum. yum.
MK came over this week and we had a girly afternoon where we watched a bad chick flick and made these marvelous little numbers! She had the recipe, but they were sooo simple, and it can be adapted to almost any kind of cake or flavor you could think of! Now that I’ve tried this out, I can feel the cake ball craze coming on. Watch out!
Dark Chocolate Cake Balls:
- Bake a cake. It can be from scratch, or boxed. We used a Betty Crocker Devil’s Food cake mix and followed the instructions on the back. Make sure the cake is thoroughly cooked.
- Take the cake and crumble it all into a bowl. When cooled, add in a can of icing. We used regular chocolate icing. Chocolate is our fav. Mmhhhmmm. Mix reaaaaal well.
- Take this mixture and start to form balls. We weren’t really precise with this, but you could weigh each amount before forming the balls to make sure they are even. We are more about taste and less about looks around here, so we skipped this step. Place the balls on wax paper, and put in your fridge for about 30 minutes.
- Melt dark chocolate in your microwave. We ended up using two full bags of dark chocolate chips for all of the balls. Start out using about half of one bag at a time, and microwave in 30 second increments, until when stirred, it is all melted.
- Remove the balls from the fridge, and in whatever way possible, coat the balls in chocolate, and place back on the wax paper. You’ll have to do through a couple rounds of chocolate melting, but once you’re all done, wait for the chocolate to harden (or if you’re impatient like me, slip them back in the fridge).
- Take out and enjoy!
