cake balls

Christmas came a little early over here at A Boy, A Girl and A Pug today. We had Christmas with boys family yesterday and today. We got smart about it and started doing it a week early that way we can totally kick back and relax and not have to worry about getting to the next household.

Now on my previous post I mentioned our enjoyable search for a metal detector and that gift was given today. What a blast y'all! Who would of thunk it? We all were fighting over it and although we found NADA we did leave my in-laws backyard with a few rather large holes.

After unloading the car I rushed to the kitchen to whip of these bad boys for a Christmas gathering tomorrow. Now there is no formal name... just call them Cake Balls. They are super easy and just about the best dessert I've ever made.


Cake Mix (make as directed)
Chocolate Almond Bark

Bake the cake mix.

While the cake mix is still warm mix it in a bowl with the frosting. Stir it well. Form into ice cream scopp sized balls and place on foil. Pop in the fridge or freezer to cool them down. 30 minutes later. Melt almond bark in the microwave. Dip cake balls into it and cool on foil.

**check out my fine dining styrofoam christmas plates!

So tasty. You can mix it up and do vanilla cake mix or vanilla frosting. If I'm going to endure the workout after these though I'm going for the good stuff.

Hey, we should workout together after Christmas. I've decided I'm going to "be good" in Jan.

OK so as if we didn't have enough sweets around the house already... last night I went to the store and bought the ingridients for your recipe! I am going to make it today after my nap! I'll let you know how they turn out!

Merry Christmas Girl!

So you actually bake the cake and then mix it while it's warm with frosting? Did i read that right? Whatever it is - they sound SOOO good!

Hope you've had a great Christmas day!

Love - Tam
