Chocolate for melting
Grab a rectangular sheet pan and bake your favourite cake the way you usually make it. You can make any flavour that you enjoy most, like you can make chocolate, strawberry, blackberry cake etc.
Once you make the cake, set it at room temperature for a while until slightly warm.
Take a medium or large mixing bowl according to your need and crumble the cake into fine crumbs with either your hands or spoon.
Other than that, you can use a food processor or a hand mixer in order to get a finer texture of the crumbs.
It is the time to mix in your frosting to make a paste of the cake crumbs.
It is simple to make as you just have to add in any of your favourite frosting, which are available in the market in various flavours of cans.
Now use either your hands or spoon to mix the frosting and crumbs until there is no part of the cake crumb mixture without frosting.
Now, place the cake dough / mixture in your refrigerator for a few hours or until chilled well.
Remove the cake mixture from the refrigerator and roll out the balls with a cookie scooper or your hands.
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper or grab a plastic container and place the cake balls in it in a row.
Place the sheet in refrigerator for approximately 2 hours or until chilled completely.
In the meantime, prepare a chocolate mixture for the dipping of the cake balls. Place a chocolate bar in a sauce pan and pour in some water.
Now, set it in the microwave or in a double boiler on the stove over low heat and wait until it starts boiling.
Now, stir the chocolate mixture constantly until smooth. Set it aside until light warm.
Now, take a large spoon, place one cake ball in it and carefully dip it into the tempered chocolate.
Set the chocolate covered cake ball on a wax paper.
Now, repeat the same procedure with rest of the cake balls.
Set the chocolate coated cake balls aside until dried properly or place them in a refrigerator before serving them.
Now, decorate your cake balls in various ways according to your choice.
