Triple chocolate cake balls



     These are seriously some of my favorite things to serve at parties, everyone grabs one because they are chocolate and look good, but then they take a bite and immediately are walking up asking how do you make this. That is a sure sign these are winners.
  Please learn from my experience and do not leave yourself alone in your house with a batch of these bite sized wonders. Before you know it they are gone,  then you might have to lie to your husband and say you brought a large, very large plate to the neighbors... and I don't wont you  lying to your husband now...:)

I first saw them almost two years ago from  Pioneer woman  when she was shown from bakerella. there are so many different things you can do with them, cake pops, cupcake bites, and cake balls.  I did the classic cake ball. 

 Ingredients
 Triple chocolate cake balls
1 box chocolate cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
1 can chocolate frosting (16 oz.)
1 package chocolate bark (regular or white chocolate) or melting chocolate, I prefer wafers
wax paper
1. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
2. Mix thoroughly with 1 can  frosting. (It may be easier to use fingers to mix together, but be warned it will get messy.)  Just keep mixing it will all combine.
3. Roll mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50.
4. Chill for several hours. (You can speed this up by putting in the freezer.)
5. Melt chocolate in microwave in 30 second increments on half power til smooth add a small amount of shortening of Veg. oil if needed. to thin out.
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.)

  A fun thing about this recipe is it is so versatile any flavor frosting or cake mix combined would be so fun. I love cream cheese frosting with red velvet cake mix.  Or carrot cake with cream cheese frosting!!!!
  You have my permission to go nuts!  Experiment with lots of different options.  Let me know what your favorite is.
Make these at your next party and you will be the star I promise!!!
