Cake Balls. . .
Well, I decided to try my hand at cake balls. I've seen and heard a lot about them recently so I had to give it a try. I looked around for recipes and ideas and looked in my pantry to see what I had on hand and got to work. First I started with a chocolate cake mix and mixed it following the directions on the box and I added some carmel pieces to the batter before baking (not a good idea). After it baked and cooled I crumbled it into very fine pieces.
Oh, I only had 1 bar of the Ghiradelli chocolate so after using all of it I mixed a few ounces of semi-sweet bakers chocolate and white chocolate (because that's all I had left). J said the ones done with the unsweetened chocolate are to bitter but I like dark chocolate so I *think* will like them. He hasn't tried one from the other batch so we'll see what he think of them.
All in all I think cake balls are cute and fun but oh so much trouble!!! May or may not ever make them again. We'll see how they taste first ;-)
