Cake Truffles

How fun are these? They are a fabulous truffle-ish candy that is relatively easy to make and is almost sure to be a hit. You can alter them to any flavor and adjust the colors for any party or event! I made these last night for a baby shower tomorrow afternoon. The colors of the shower are pink and green so I used strawberry cake and white almond bark. Madison taste tested them for me and declared them YUMMY! She's hoping they won't be a hit at the shower so that I can bring some home for her!

1 box any flavor cake mix (cooked as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)

1 (16 ounce) can cream cheese frosting

1 package almond bark (regular or white chocolate)

Bake cake according to directions on box. Cool completely (I put mine in the freezer to speed this step up) and crumble cake into large bowl. Mix thoroughly with 1 can cream cheese frosting. You can use a spoon to mix it up but I've found it's easier to just use my hands- but be prepared because it is VERY messy. Use a small cookie scoop and roll into quarter size balls and lay on wax paper covered cookie sheets. Chill for several hours or freeze for about 30 minutes. Melt chocolate in microwave per directions on package. Roll balls in chocolate and lay on wax paper until firm. I drop it in the chocolate and then use a fork to get rid of the extra chocolate. When using white chocolate almond bark it might be necessary to double dip the balls or decorate with sprinkles to cover up any imperfections.
