Granny’s Cake Balls

Granny’s Cake Balls

 

1 Chocolate Cake Mix

Frosting, see below

Dipping chocolate, see below

 

Mix and bake according to instructions on the box.    While cake is baking make frosting….you may use store bought frosting, but I like to make my own.

 

Homemade Frosting:

1/4 cup butter

6 oz cream cheese

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

Milk, enough to make a good texture

 

In a large bowl…..cream together all to the desired consistency, set aside.    When cake is done baking dump immediately (while still hot) into frosting and mix it all together.   Chill over night

 

Roll into balls.

 

Dipping Chocolate:

Melt dipping chocolate with a little butter over medium low heat, remove from stove and dip the balls and place on wax paper or in wax paper cups to harden.

 

For Dipping chocolate you may use chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, vanilla chips or mix and match your chips….any chip is wonderful here.

 

Variations:

Top with nuts or sprinkles of choice…

Dust with coconut…

Butter cake with coconut frosting is one of my favorites…

German Chocolate cake with German Chocolate frosting and dipped in Milk chocolate is also very tasty…

Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese frosting and dipped in vanilla dipping chocolate…
