Cake Bites/ Balls/ Bliss

Sleet. Ice bullets. Possible snow. Cold blasts. Ice on bridges. Freezing rain.
Schools are closed across Louisiana. That's just odd.
I think it might be due to the fact they didn't have to close down during hurricane season.
I'm just guessing.
The children and I didn't rise from slumber until---roughly---10 AM---when Oma and Opa showed up for morning coffee. They were generous in waiting.
I will spend the day washing bedding, everyone's bedding!...caring for a 17-yr-old dog who has a bleeding ulcer (sorry, that's not exactly appropriate with the picture display)...and cooking.

I thought I'd share something easy and fun the girls and I made the other day.
Cake Balls! Or Bites! Whichever you please.
Chances are you've seen them on other blogs and around the internet but I had never made them.
They were so simple. So easy. So tasty!
Perfect holiday or birthday party treats!
Perfect for freezing cold days in February!
And they're very forgiving. If you don't have any toppings besides leftover Christmas sprinkles, you can still use that and call them Valentine Day sprinkles.

Box of cake mix
Container of frosting
Bark Candy Coating

Bake the cake. Allow to cool completely. Crumble in bowl. Melt frosting in microwave until liquidy, but not too hot. Needs to be warm but slightly cool for little hands to work. Warm container of frosting approximately 35 sec in microwave.

Stir 1/2 of melted frosting into crumbled cake mix. Mix into a moist ball of dough with hands.

Shape into balls. Another idea is to press into candy molds and form shapes.

Place in freezer for 30 min-1 hr.

Melt Bark Candy Coating and dip balls or shapes. Place on wax paper to harden. Sprinkle with toppings immediately.
