Amazing Cake Balls

Amazing Cake Balls
So I made these last weekend for my daughters 4th birthday party, and they were such a hit! I actually had 1 person tell me they were so good, she had to close her eyes to eat them... to really take in the moment! You can mix and match all different flavor combinations, I used white cake, white & chocolate almond bark, and made a homemade marshmallow cream frosting for the inside (although you can buy any container of premade frosting).
1 box cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
frosting (16 oz.) (my recipe below)
1 package chocolate bark (regular or whitechocolate)wax paper
1. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
2. Mix thoroughly with frosting. (It may be easier to use fingers to mix together, but be warned it will get messy.)
3. Roll mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50. You can get even more if you use a mini ice cream scooper, but I like to hand roll them.)
4. Chill for several hours. (You can speed this up by putting in the freezer.)
5. Melt chocolate in microwave per directions on package.
6. Roll balls in chocolate and lay on wax paper until firm. (Use a spoon to dip and roll in chocolate and then tap off extra.) I also only melt a few pieces of chocolate bark at a time because it starts to cool and thicken. It’s easier to work with when it’s hot.

Marshmallow Cream Frosting

· 7 ounces marshmallow cream
· 1/2 cup butter softened
· 1 teaspoon vanilla
· 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
· 1-2 tablespoons milk

Mix all ingredients together until smooth. I beat this for several minutes.
Use to frost cupcakes, cakes, and other desserts.
