Yep that’s what I said. I actually made these a while ago and somehow forgot to share them. My niece was in town staying with my sister and she loves to be in the kitchen, so I thought what better to do than to bake something together, well sort of. I had seen this recipe a while ago on Bakerella and decided it wasn’t for me. But on our vacation trip, my husband had the pleasure of trying these for the first time, so I reconsidered. As you know I don’t like cake, but my husband does, and well he loves these! (they were a family-wide hit in fact). He especially loves vanilla, so I made a funfetti cake, used vanilla frosting and vanilla candy coating. This was a vanilla cake lovers dream! Warning: you can hurt yourself on these if you don’t exercise some restraint, but if you like a good slice of cake, you should give these a try. You will be pleasantly surprised, trust me.
1 box cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
1 can frosting (16 oz.)
1 package candy coating (regular or white chocolate)
Bake your cake according to directions, or favorite recipe, once the cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl. Next mix thoroughly with 1 can frosting, whatever kind you prefer, using your hands is easiest, but kind of gooey and messy. Roll the mixture into balls and lay on cookie sheet covered in wax paper or parchment. Chill for several hours or you can be impatient like me and just put them in the freezer! Then melt candy coating in microwave per package instructions. Dip the balls into the coating and lay on wax paper until firm. I like to use a fork when coating things, the excess kind of falls off between the tines, but you can also use a spoon. Once the coating has dried/cooled you can eat up right away or put them in the fridge to enjoy a cool treat. I stored mine in a tupperware in the fridge, because this recipe makes a lot, but you could just share them and they will be gone fast!
