Tidbit Tuesday - Cake Balls

When signing up for blog posts, I debated if I would take a Tuesday or a Monday. See, what I wanted to talk about is a recipe, but in no way does it take only minutes. One of my favorite desserts to make is Paula Deen's Cake Balls. Now how many of you have ever hears of this? Well, they are delicious and super easy to make. Here is how. 

1. Bake a cake. Now this can be any cake, but we will talk flavor choices later. Just follow the instructions on the box. 
2. Take the cake out of the oven and let it cool for about 30 minutes. 
3. (If you have a mixer or kids, this next step is easier for you) Mix together 1 tub of frosting with the cake. You will want an even constituency, it will kind of look and feel like cookie dough. 
4. Let the "cake ball batter" freeze for at least three hours, you can leave it overnight. I found it best to place in tupperware. 
5. Scoop them out with a melon baller or small spoon and roll them into more perfect balls.
6. When you finish, stick 'em back in the freezer for about 30 minutes.  (While this is happening, set up a cookie sheet with wax paper on top)
7. Melt some chocolate in whichever way or method is your favorite. (Milk, Semi-Sweet, or White)
8. You can either use a toothpick, or snap the two middle prongs out of a plastic fork and dip the cake balls in the chocolate. Stick 'em on the cookie sheet
9. Stick them back in the freezer for another hour - two hours.
10. ENJOY!
