Ingredients

  • Pinch baking powder
  • 5 Tablespoons softened butter
  • 12 oz chocolate candy coating (use one that is real chocolate not the fake stuff)
  • 8 oz cream cheese (no need to soften)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 scant Tablespoon flour
  • 4 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 2-4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 3 oz. package strawberry jello
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 box white cake mix (no pudding added)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease and flour a 9 x 13 in cake pan.In the bowl of an electric mixer, whisk together cake mix, jello, flour, baking powder, and sugar
  3. Add oil and beat until combined
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition
  5. Stir in water and fresh strawberries and beat until smooth
  6. Pour into baking pan and bake according to cake mix package directions.Let the cake cool completely, then remove it from the pan into a large bowl
  7. Don’t worry about it breaking or crumbling–you’re about to do that anyway! Use your fingers to crumble the cake into fine crumbs
  8. Set aside.In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter on high speed until smooth and fluffy
  9. Beat in the vanilla
  10. Add the two cups of powdered sugar and stir on low speed until it begins to incorporate
  11. Once it does, turn the speed up to high and beat until smooth
  12. Add additional powdered sugar, ½ cup at a time until desired taste and texture has been reached
  13. Since you won’t be piping this you don’t really have to worry about the thickness too much
  14. I like my frosting less sweet so I usually don’t add a lot of additional powdered sugar, but it’s more personal preference on this one.Use a double boiler to melt the chocolate coating
  15. Set aside.Place about a cup and a half of the frosting in the bowl with the cake crumbs
  16. Take off any rings you have, then use your hands to blend the frosting and crumbs together
  17. Once the mixture starts to clump together, try rolling it into a ball
  18. If it sticks, you’re good
  19. If it falls apart, add a little more frosting until the mixture stays together.Roll the crumb mixture into 1 inch balls and place them on a baking sheet
  20. Use a spoon to place dollops of the melted chocolate on top of the balls
  21. No need to be perfect here, just get a nice spoonful of chocolate on each one
  22. Place in the fridge and allow to set up before serving.
