    Luby Luby Luby's Note:

    A co-worker gave me this recipe. You can use any flavor cake mix and icing you choose. My preference is lemon, but I have used a red velvet mix and tinted almond bark with green coloring for christmas. You must refrigerate cake mix in order to roll into balls. I find it is easier to work with half of cake and leave other half in the freezer while dipping. Have fun experimenting with different flavors.

      Fabulous recipe, and really easy compared to decorated cookies, molded candy and all the other messy delights we enjoy at Christmas. I used chocolate fudge cake and a cream cheese/powdered sugar mixture, covering it with chocolate almond bark. I also made red velvet with vanilla icing and white almond bark. For shaping the balls, I used the Pampered Chef small scoop, which is about a 1 1/2" diameter squeeze and release scoop. I highly recommend it. Then, freeze the balls for 30 minutes up to a day or more before dipping. Rather than toothpicks, I used two forks. Top with sprinkles before they dry. These were a hit at last night's party!

      These are great. So far I've made the red velvet/cream cheese frosting/white chocolate ones, german chocolate/coconut pecan frosting/white chocolate ones, and strawberry/chocolate fudge frosting/chopped maraschino cherries/chocolate coated ones. The trick really is only melting a little of the coating at a time, and freezing the balls well before coating and only taking a handful of them out of the freezer to coat at a time.
