Can't Wait

Monday night is Family Home Evening in our house. That always includes a treat. I'd like to do something special and different each week, but even if I have plenty of energy and time, some of us are not keen about new and different things. It is also child #1's half birthday. We celebrate 1/2 birthdays around here because they fall in the dreaded Jan - March time period and we need something to celebrate then. We celebrate by having some form of cake. This should work out perfectly, even though it's new and different:

Cake Balls

I'm going to have to change the name to Cake Bites because my kids are just at the age to have a field day with that name.

This is one I've been waiting for awhile to try, but haven't had the time. Hooray for snow days!

p.s. I'll let you know how they are.

UPDATE: Yum, oh yum, yum, yum. They are delicious just cold and without the "dipped in chocolate" part (we didn't have time to dip them all). However my kids COMPLAINED because they were cold (from being in the freezer). But I just ate one out of the fridge that was dipped in chocolate, it was decadent. I used a devil's food cake mix (Dunkin Hines - it's the only kind I buy) but I didn't have any canned frosting so I made my own vanilla buttercream frosting. We rolled them in melted semi-sweet chocolate, but I want to melt some white chocolate and try that too.


  1. oh it sounds so good! I got to try this recipe :-) Thanks.

  2. Thank you for the linky love, Christy. I'm not a great photographer, but that is one of my all-time favorite photos. I'm so glad you all loved this as much as we do! (Yes, I know what you mean about the kids having a field day with the name!)
