Sweet Little Treat
Here is another fun treat. This one is a little more time consuming, however, so delicious. Here is what you need:
1 box of any kind of cake mix (I just chose vanilla for the first try) and the ingredients to make the cake ie. eggs, water, oil
1 can of frosting. Again, your choice.Check Spelling
1 pkg of either Almond Bark(this could include chocolate or butterscotch bark) or a bag of Chocolate Chips. The choices are endless.
Food coloring in totally optional
The next step is easy....make the cake!
Let it cool and then dump it out into a mixing bowl. Crumble it completely! This is a fun job for the kids...just wash hands first!

When the cake is crumbled, add in the entire container of frosting. As you can tell, we used the rainbow chip frosting. So YUMMY! Mix until combined completely. This gets a little messy.

While making all the cake balls, you'll want to start melting your chocolate or bark! Do this either in a double boiler or in the microwave on low. I decided to color the almond bark in a pale blue color. My favorite color and the boys loved it too! As soon as it's melted start dipping the cake balls. I did it using two spoons. This step is also a little messy, but fun.

Place the treats on a baking sheet, either lined with plastic wrap or not. I chose not to use it and they came off just fine. Let cool at room temperature. As you can tell, Jaxon could not wait to try them.

Soon enough, you'll have these tasty little treats to enjoy. I know there are so many combinations I want to try. You can make them either small or large, but just a word of advice: don't do too much tasting in the process...these are pretty sweet treats!
