Cake Balls/Pops/Truffles

1 cake mix (flavor of your choice)
1 can frosting (or home-made)
melting chocolate

I will give you the abbreviated version, but for the lengthy process please check out Bakerella.

Here is the short version - Make the cake mix as directed.  Let the cake cool overnight, then the next day dump the cooled cake in a bowl and mash it all up.  Mix in almost an entire (I leave about a half inch in the bottom) canister of frosting.  Make sure the frosting is completely incorporated, then take a spoonful of the cake/frosting mixture and roll into a ball with your hands.  Place the balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Once you have rolled all the cake into balls, place the cookie sheet in the freezer until slightly firm.  While the balls are chilling, melt the chocolate.  Drop the chilled cake balls into the melted chocolate, coat using a spoon and place on a second parchment lined cookie sheet.  Decorate and embellish as desired.
