Butterfinger Cake Balls

There is a reality to be faced. It is summer, time to party, don't want to eat healthy. There, I said it. So, rather then apologizing everytime I post something scandalous, such as this, let's just face the facts, I love my treats!

I am a bit obsessed with cakeballs at the moment. I actually lay awake at night thinking of different combinations I can do with them. They are such a fun, different and delicious dessert to serve to guests, and there are about a million different combinations.

This combination was really yummy. I loved the yellow cake mix with chocolate frosting, and the Butterfinger on top was just another delicious bonus. I still maintain that milk chocolate is the best for dipping, as I tried that and semi-sweet again. The only thing I would do differently is adding chopped Butterfinger right on the cake itself, as well as on top. Next time right?

Ingredients

1 yellow cake mix
1 tub chocolate frosting
1 large bag milk chocolate chips
3-4 large Butterfingers bars crumbled

Directions

Bake yellow cake according to directions. Once mostly cooled, crumble into a bowl. Stir in chocolate frosting until completely combined into a dough. Roll into small balls. Insert toothpicks for easy dipping and freeze for 1-2 hours.

Once the cake balls are hardened, melt your chocolate. I have melted it in a double boiler, and I have melted it in the microwave, and I can't tell much of a difference, you just want to move quickly. Right after dipping them in chocolate, dip the tops in the candy, and place on wax paper, candy side down, for at least an hour to dry.

Turn over so balls are candy side up and devour. Try to stop at just one, I dare ya!

I had to laugh at the latest comment you left on my blog (re: the spinach dip)! There have been so many nights where I've been tempted to make a particular recipe all for myself (after putting the kids to bed) and just curl up on the couch and chow down! :)
