Snowballs!

Don't laugh... it is a RECIPE from me! These are delicious!!

Here is a good ol' southern recipe for cake balls, but I think that sounds gross, so I call them "snowballs". YUM!!!

I got this recipe from blogger Kelly, and her pictures were so good, that I used those too!

You can use any kind of cake and icing, but the red velvet are my favorite (Carla).


FIRST....

Here are the "extra" items you will need, and you just bake the cake mix according to the directions on the box.

When it's still warm - crumble it up in a bowl and mix in a can of frosting (I used cream cheese with the red velvet!)IMPORTANT STEP: Refrigerate the cake and frosting for about an hour before you start to make the balls.

Handy little Pampered Chef scooper to make balls.


Melt almond bark (either vanilla or chocolate - depending on your cake) and dip balls in the bark. You could use toothpicks or a fork - but I used this egg separator and it worked GREAT!

VOILA!
