Cake Balls of Fire!

So I was trying to come up with a new Holiday treat for a Holiday work party, and lo and behold (which emails me recipe ideas daily) sent me an email for Cake Balls.

Reviewed by 1,309 people-check. Look tasty delicious-check. Easy instructions-check.

So the simpleness of these Cake Balls is that you simply 1) Bake a Cake, 2) Crumble up the cake in a bowl, 3) Mix an entire container of icing into cake, 4) Refrigerate, 5) Make into sweet little balls and dip in chocolate coating.

And YUMMY--a cruchy, gooey, sprinkly masterpiece. My hubby's reaction being:
WHY HAVEN'T YOU EVER MADE THESE BEFORE", in the most serious of they will now be a crucial dessert staple in our home. (He won't even let me take them to my work party because we NEED them here.)

A friend lead me on to Bakerella's blog with Cake Balls and Cake Pops galore--apparently all the rage right now.

All I have to say is you must, you must try them! However, next time I need to practice a little more at the dipping...mine aren't nearly as pretty as Bakerella's or AllRecipes lay them out to be.
