Because I think I am cooler than I actually am, I like to say that "I'm not really one for food fads." I like to eat things that taste good to me and as a person of infamous bad taste, my preferences usually do not fall in line with anything considered trend-setting. But then I'd been seeing these "cake balls" in a few places. To be honest, I kinda assumed that they would be gross. Then my cousin Jessica brought a plate over to my parents' house a few weeks ago and I ate one. Then I ate about 14 more. They were SO good. So very very good. My mom made it her life's mission to recreate this phenomenon as soon as possible. That happened to be last weekend wen we were home together. These little balls are so inexpensive and easy to make and they are so cute and delicious that they would make a great dessert to bring for a potluck party, picnic, or buffet of any kind. One box of cake will make a very large quantity of cake balls so this isn't really a dessert-for-two type of thing. Word of warning: They are addictive. You will not be able to eat just one.
1 box chocolate cake mix (along with eggs, oil, water - or whatever the mix calls for)
1 can chocolate frosting
2 bars Hersey Milk Chocolate
Toppings (I used sprinkles, course salt, and cinnamon)
1. Bake the chocolate cake according to the box instructions. Allow to cool and dump the whole cake into a large bowl.
