Directions Step-By-Step

Mix cake mix per directions, cool completely when done and crumble in a bowl. Mix together with cream cheese frosting(the whole thing). Form balls from the cake/frosting mixture(as many of possible)
Melt squares of chocolate in a double boiler or bowl on top of a pot of boiling water, dont burn the chocolate.Form cake/icing into smooth round balls. Freezing the cake balls may help dip these easier. Use a spoon or toothpick to dip into chocolate. Place on wax paper and put in fridge to cool.

    How do you get the balls to dip in the chocolate & come out so pretty?! Mine can get pretty shabby sometimes.

    I've had some pretty shabby ones, especially when your hands get so tired from forming the cake/icing into balls, you just have to carefully dip them in the chocolate and when your done, drizzlin the chocolate over the balls to make those pretty lines. The picture is from bakerella but I've made some that turned out like that and thats how I managed
