funfetti cake balls

there are some fake out dessert recipes that are truly classics.
they're not really baking.
they're not even close to homemade.
and forget about these recipes being healthy, puh-lease.
they are, however, classics for a reason.
because they're absolutely delicious, addicting and even have non-sweet lovers coming back confused and enamored with you and your cake balls.

btw there is something so liberating about making a perfect looking cake and then completely destroying it.

the hard part is finding enough room in your freezer to fit 100 cake balls.
i did discover about a half dozen bags of frozen vegetables upon inspection.
oh good, at least now i have a plan to alter the affect of the cake balls right?

and the special dark chocolate coating.

and yes, i did say 100 cake balls. 
100 cake balls.
please don't just make these on a whim for yourself and your hubby.
unless you have a plethora of elastic waist pants in your house.
these are for an event, outside of the house.
bring them to a dinner party, a cook out, etc.
you can then still sit near the platter of cake balls and gaze at them lovingly.
but you will not have 100 cake balls in your house mocking you all day.

p.s. save a few for home, just for yourself.
these won't last.
