Cake Dots

I am not a huge fan of cake... I've just never like it. But when I was in Starbucks not to long ago, I tried on of their new cake pops, and I LOVED it! So, I decided I was going to try and recreate them. :)

After looking online and a using few ideas from different recipes I found, I created this very simple, easy as can be, recipe to make cake dots. 

I love recipes that allow you to be creative and don't limit you. This is one of them. There are so many different combinations of cake and icing mixtures you can use, different ways to decorate them, you can choose to dip them in chocolate or you can just leave them as cake dots. {personally, I don't see why you wouldn't dip them in chocolate... the more chocolate the better! ...but to each their own, I guess. :)} You really can't go wrong with these. There is no wrong way to do it! 
 They just melt in your mouth!



Ingredients:
1 box cake mix
3/4 container of icing
2 bags of candy melting chocolates
sprinkles (optional)
white chocolate for drizzling (optional)

Directions:

Bake cake mix according to box directions. Let the cake cool. Then, cut large sections and put in separate bowl and break up with a fork. Then slowly add spoonfuls of icing and mix into the cake until it is gooey and moist and there is no visible icing bits. {I find it easiest to do this a little bit at a time. Saves a huge mess!}

Next, take small portions of cake/icing mixture and roll into balls and put on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.

Refrigerate the cake balls for at least an hour.

Melt chocolates according to package directions. Then take chilled cake balls and dip into chocolate. Set dipped balls back on the wax paper lined baking sheet and decorate them to your liking. :) If you are going to use sprinkles or anything that will not stay on by itself, you will need to decorate while the chocolate is still wet. It dries quickly so have everything ready to do it right away. If you are going to drizzle them with white chocolate, wait until they have dried and hardened, then use melted white chocolate and just simply drizzle it over the

Then the best part... EAT THEM! :)

I tried this with Cherry Cake Mix and Cherry Frosting. They taste delicious. But, I had somewhat of a mess trying to dip them in white almond bark. I will try your suggestion for chocolate next time. Sounds like a winner! Love to you and Andrew, Aunt D
