Y? Because I'm a Queen

If you leave these Cake Bites out for Santa, I'll almost GAR-OWN-TEEEEE that he will treat you like a queen . . . or a king, depending.

On a side note, I've identified a sure-fire way to figure out if you are a queen or a king. It all has to do with The Three Stooges. Seriously. Listen up. If you love, and I mean LUV The Three Stooges, you carry an X and a Y chromosome. If you are like me and have all of your wits about you, then you ABHOR The Three Stooges with a passion. You are a queen with two X chromosomes and possess extremely good taste in movies.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch . . .

Cake Bites

1 chocolate cake baked in 9 X 13 pan
(a box mix works great)
1 canister cream cheese frosting (not whipped style)
Dipping chocolate
Skewers or lollipop sticks

After baking the cake, allow to completely cool in pan. Break cake into small chunks and place in large mixing bowl. Add entire canister of frosting. Mix thoroughly with wooden spoon. Roll mixture into walnut-size balls and place on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Place baking sheet in freezer for at least an hour or until cake balls are frozen. (At this point the balls can be placed in a freezer bag and placed in the freezer for up to three weeks.) Melt dipping chocolate in a narrow and deep bowl or glass measuring cup. Dip the frozen cake balls into chocolate using two forks and place on waxed paper. Alternatively, skewer the cake balls with a skewer or lollipop stick and dip the cake balls in the chocolate. Allow chocolate to set up then drizzle with contrasting chocolate. If you wish to roll the cake balls in crushed candy canes, chopped nuts, toffee bits, coconut, nonpareils, etc., do so immediately after dipping the balls in the chocolate; place on waxed paper to set up. Makes approximately 6 dozen cake bites.

And now, a deep thought for the day: "Nyuck, nyuck, nyuck."--Curly Howard

It seems like every time I read your blog I end up either very hungry or dying to read a new book!
