chocolate cake balls

i found a site long ago (before it was advertised on Martha Stewart) that i just love!! Bakerella makes the cutest things on her site. i especially love the cupcake bites on her site. i decided to try to make them for a party yesterday. but they were falling apart so i just made balls instead. i'll have to try making the cupcake bites again sometime, because theses are the cutest things i've ever seen.

i didn't have cream cheese frosting on hand so i just mixed the cake with chocolate icing. and i dipped them in real chocolate, not chocolate bark so maybe that is why i had trouble dipping the cupcake shapes.

the small cake balls were dipped in milk chocolate, and the large cake balls were dipped in dark chocolate

Those look really yummy. I'll have to make some to send to work with Charlie.

Have you ever made the Oreo cookie version? Same basic idea but use Oreo cookies instead of cake. Whiz the cookies up in the blender, mix with cream cheese, roll into balls and dip in melted chocolate. I did some white chocolate ones, and I did some with peanut butter Oreos, and I think I did some mint Oreos. They were a big hit at work!
