Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake Balls

Ohh the school bake sales. My program is trying to raise money to send 40+ people to Indianapolis for the Occupational Therapy national conference. So I am doing my part one dessert at a time. My roommates complain that I am constantly filling the house with deliciously sweet aromas, but then tease them by taking the baked goods away. But I usually leave them something, I’m not cruel. Since February 14th is tomorrow, today’s bake sale was Valentine’s Day themed.  So I decided to make Cake balls. I love making cake balls because 1) you get to smash up a freshly baked cake, 2) they’re super easy to make but everyone is impressed with them, and 3) you get to say things like “how did my balls taste?”

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake Balls
1 box of white cake mix
4 eggs
1 ½ cups of diced frozen strawberries
1 (8 oz) box of strawberry cream cheese

Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting
1 cup powdered sugar
¼ cup butter
1 (8 oz) box of strawberry cream cheese
½ tsp vanilla extract

Forget the directions on the cake box mix, and whip up the cake using the ingredients listed above. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Then, mix together all the ingredients for the frosting. Now is the fun part. Smash the cake into tiny little pieces (I like to use my hands), then add the frosting and cream it all together until it gets into a soft, mushy consistency. Roll the mix up into little balls on a baking sheet (whatever size you like your balls), then freeze. After they are frozen, melt chocolate chips, dip the frozen balls in, and then re-freeze. Soooo good! Add sprinkles for whatever your occasion J
