Chocolate: Cake Balls

Man, would B get a hearty laugh out of that title...along with several unsavory remarks concerning that B-word. Until I threaten to withhold my "balls" from him. Funnily enough, I haven't even tasted one yet, but they sound soooo delicious: crumbled cake mixed with frosting and coated with a layer of chocolate. (The layer of chocolate is my preference.)

Have you heard of these things before?

I must be living in a cave (or at the very least completely enamored by Minecraft :D). They are all the rage. I happened to see the recipe on B's mother's counter and promptly requested a copy. Here is an article about them. Cake Wrecks posted an adorable picture on their Sunday Sweets featuring them (look for the sheep). They were made by Bakerella which is where my local newspaper gathered their info. I Goodled cake balls and found this (nice directions).
And if you like drooling do a Google Image search.

So...I bought the ingredients today...

i can tell you that i have not heard of them until now.

oh, and i just finished reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Going to watch the movie tonight and start reading the second book next week.

It was a really good book so I hope the movie will give it justice.

I hope the movie works. That is a must with books and their movies. Give me an update :)

Okay, so I'm running behind in my reading, but this cake ball thing sounds like a MUST make! How did yours turn out?
