My version of Cake balls. You can put them on a stick and call them Cake Pops.
Bake a cake by following the instructions on the back.
Dump in a large bowl
Add 1 C. frosting
Mix with hands until it is a play dough consistency
Form into balls and put on a cookie sheet
Melt 2 C. chocolate chips (You can use white, milk, semisweet, butterscotch, etc.) in the microwave until it is a runny consistency.
Add about 1 Tbsp. shortening to the chocolate chips and continue stirring. I didn't do this step and I think they would have been a lot prettier if I would have.
Roll balls in chocolate with a spoon and place on greased cookie sheet.
When they are still wet, sprinkle with what ever sprinkles you have.
