A great dessert for any occasion!

"very yummy. i used french vanilla duncan hines cake recipe with vanilla duncan hines frosting. i then used hersey milk chocolate chips to cover the cake balls after freezing and hersey white chocolate chips for drizzling. after i was done i put all into a container and put it back in the fridge so they stay cool. i loved how after freezing and putting the milk chocolate over it it froze and stayed (looked like) i bought them! its very sweet so i could eat like 1 at a time. but i only but it in the freezer for 1hr."


1 box German chocolate cake
1 tub chocolate frosting
2 bags white chocolate chips; melted, for dipping, to cover the cake balls
Milk chocolate; melted, for drizzle

Original recipe makes 25



Bake cake in 9- by 13-inch pan according to directions on box.

Once cake has baked and cooled, crumble entire cake into a large bowl. Add 2/3 of the frosting, and mix the cake and frosting with your hands. Roll into balls a little smaller than a golf ball. Lay on cookie sheet lined with wax paper, and freeze for at least 2 hours.

Once cake balls are frozen, dip in melted white chocolate and return to cookie sheet. Then drizzle the melted milk chocolate over the cake balls for a decorative touch.

I used the Tbsp. size measuring spoon , leveling it (like you would baking soda). By leveling it, its easier to sit on the cookie sheet after dipping. I made a yellow cake w/ strawberry frosting dipped in white ao
