I originally started this blog as a place to store tried and true recipes for my family. It didn't take long to discover how supportive and fun the blog community was and I became hooked! I rarely create my own recipes, but I still hope you'll enjoy the recipes that I find and tweak a bit.
I know a lot of you food bloggers are already doing this, but you've got to check out pinterest.com. It's a really fun website full of ideas, and ways to file and bookmark your ideas for others to see. I've found a ton of great ideas, including these little babies.
I so wish I could have gotten a better picture of these, but when you're away from home and out of your element it doesn't always work out. The kids and I made these cake balls and they were as delicious as they were cute. I needed to hurry and post these because it's not too late, there's still two weeks left of summer, right? :)
Watermelon Cake Balls
1 strawberry cake mix, prepared according to directions
1 tub strawberry frosting, or vanilla frosting, colored red
1-1 1/2 chocolate chips
1 bag white almond bark
1 bad green chocolate melts (I like Wilton the best) or white chocolate colored green (be sure to add coloring BEFORE you melt it, otherwise the chocolate will seize)
Crumble cake mix into a large bowl. Add entire tub of frosting and chocolate chips, mix until completely combined. Roll into balls the size of a bouncy ball. Freeze for at least a half hour. Lay out a long sheet of wax paper on the counter. Melt your white chocolate (I usually melt the chocolate a third of the bag at a time). Using a spoon, completely dip the cake ball in chocolate, tapping off excess. Dry on wax paper. Repeat the same steps with green chocolate. Allow to dry and eat, after everyone admires the cuteness of course. :)
