1 (18.25 ounce) box of cake mix, your choice
1 (16 ounce) container prepared frosting, your choice
1 (16 ounce) bag merckens chocolate, milk, mint, dark or white
~Prepare cake mix as directed on box.
~Bake as directed on box.
~When cake is done, allow it to cool for 25-30 minutes.
~Crumble cake into a large mixing bowl.
~Add frosting and mix until mixed well.
~Place bowl in refrigerator, covered, for 2 hours (will not hurt to leave overnight).
~Line a cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper.
~Using a cookie scoop or mellon baller, scoop out the cake mixture.
~Place on cookie sheet.
~Freeze for 1 hour.
~Melt chocolate in a double boiler, or a glass bowl over a pot of simmer water (make sure water does not boil or touch the bowl).
~Stir often until chocolate is melted.
~If you are using white chocolate and want to dye it, now is the time to do it.
~Remove cake balls from freezer.
~Dip cake balls one at a time into the chocolate, making sure they are completely coated, and excess chocolate is dripped off (I like to take a fork and poke it into the cake ball to make dipping easier).
~Place dipped cake ball back onto the cookie sheet.
~Let chocolate set.
~If you want to make them fancier, drizzle another color of chocolate over them.
