Cake Balls

If you are in the mood for some delicious cake but you want something creative rather than the normal boxed cake. Well here you go, cake balls are so sweet and delicious. You only need two cake balls to be satisfied, although once you have one you will keep coming back for more.
This time around I made Funfetti Cake with Vanilla Frosting and Vanilla Cake with Chocolate Frosting. There are endless combinations of Cake and Frosting, use what sounds good to you.

1 (18.25 ounce) package cake mix (flavor of your choice)
1/2 container of prepared frosting, about 8 oz. (flavor of our choice)
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips (melted with 1 Tbsp of coconut oil)

1. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions using any of the recommended pan sizes.
2. When cake is done, crumble while warm into a large bowl, and stir in half of the frosting until well blended.
3. Use a melon baller or your hands to form balls of the cake mixture. Place balls in a covered pan and refrigerate overnight or stick in the freezer for 2-3 hours.
4. Once balls are ready and cold, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in a glass bowl in the microwave, or in double boiler, stirring often until smooth.
5. Remove the balls from the cold and dip the balls in the melted chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place them on waxed paper and then place them in the refrigerator until the chocolate hardens. Remove from fridge right before serving. Enjoy!
