These are so easy to make and are great to keep in the freezer and pull out to impress guests.
All it takes is some leftover cake with icing, birthday cake is PERFECT.  Mash up the cake, icing too, with a fork, until it is well blended. Roll pieces of mashed cake into little balls (you can decide the size) and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Place in freezer for 30 minutes.
Melt chocolate in a glass bowl, we used dark chocolate chips (can also use white chocolate, semi sweet, or milk chocolate). Remove balls from freezer, roll in melted chocolate and place back onto wax paper. Sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles or chocolate shavings. Keep in freezer until ready to serve. These will keep in the freezer for several weeks. Super easy and very tasty!
