Recently, we have a new favorite family dessert courtesy of my brother’s girlfriend (future sister-in-law- hint, hint!) It turns out that they should be pretty easy to make and should taste super yummy no mater what. I am clearly missing something!
1 cake made from a boxed mix
1 can of premade frosting
Bake the cake, let it cool and break it up with a fork.
Smush together 2/3 of the can of frosting with the cake crumbles. You really need to get in there with your hands. I tried to do it neatly with a fork and it just wasn’t happening. It is like making meatballs!
I used pink lemonade cake and frosting from Pillsbury. I LOVE pink lemonade! It is pink and lemony! How could I go wrong?
My brother’s girlfriend usually sticks to chocolate and vanilla and then drizzles them with some pretty melted chocolate. I chose to top mine with green tinted coconut and some jelly beans for spring thanksgiving.
They look okay. I think maybe they could have benefited from a tad bit of pink food coloring and some additional lemon flavoring. But they just seemed a little dry and I used more like 3/4 of the can of frosting.
And Kevin’s family insisted on calling them cookies no mater how many times we told them they were cake balls.
