Cookies and Cream Cakeballs

This year at my kids' school - I've used cake pops as their incentive to be good and not cry at drop offs. Since it has been a big help for the teachers too - I thought I needed to make them a treat as well. 

Cookies & Cream Cakeballs

1 white cake mix
1 vanilla cake icing
1 package of Oreos
2 packages of dipping chocolate 

Make the cake according to the package instructions, bake, and cool completely. In gallon sized zip bag or good processor, crush 3/4 of the package I cookies. 

Add the cookie crumbs to a very large bowl, and crumble the cake into the same bowl. Mix the cookie and cake crumbs together. Add in the icing and mix until everything is combined. Refrigerate for 1 hour. 

Use a cookie scoop to measure out the cake mixture into balls - you could also do this by hand if you want. Place on a wax paper lined baking sheet, and freeze for 30 minutes to an hour. 

Melt your dipping chocolate: you can use the microwave, a double boiler, or a Velata warmer

Dip each ball into the chocolate using a fork or lollipop stick - you want the cake ball to be completely coated so that it I sealed and keeps the cake fresh. Place on wax paper to cool an harden. You can refrigerate the balls after they are cooled or they can be left at room temperature in a sealed container.
