In honor of St. Patty's day being right around the corner and the fact that we are going to see our good friends Maney & Amy this weekend (they are our foodie buddies) - I decided to make cake balls again. It was so much fun the first time, why not?
I mentioned in my "Who's Counting" Cake Post that I had a minor failure with one of the vanilla cakes I was making. It was undercooked and decided to sink in the middle. Not in my plan for that cake! At first I was devastated....then I remembered that cake balls are perfect if the cake is undercooked a little bit. Problem solved, devastation averted. Cake balls saved the day!

Since I just did a post on cake balls, I won't go through the whole process again. Here is the short and sweet vanilla version:
Crumble the cake the easy way - with the food processor.
Add frosting to the crumbled cake.
Combine them together - I like to just dig right in. For my family and friends who have kids, they would love to help with this part! :)
Roll them into balls and lay on cookie sheet. Put them in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Melt the chocolate bark a few pieces at a time.
Since St. Patty's day is coming up, I used green food coloring to the chocolate bark and green sprinkles.
Dip the cake ball into the melted chocolate bark.
Yum, yum and....
