How I Roll

I rolled my way right through Sunday.

Fifty cake balls for a friend and then a dozen asian turkey meatballs for dinner!

I’m getting better at cake balls…I have learned that, if you’re using white chocolate to coat, the best is Nestle Toll House Premier White. They seem to melt down the best and provide smoother coverage. I’ve heard that you can add a bit of Crisco to chocolate to help thin it out, too.

For these, I used Duncan Hines Spice cake mix and DH whipped cream cheese frosting and then the white chocolate and chocolate jimmies. They had a very mild gingerbread flavor ~ perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas dessert tables.

1 box of cake mix {prepared as directed and baked in a 9X13 pan}, 3/4 {12 ounces} of one 16 ounce container prepared frosting and one whole bag of melted chocolate {or white} chips yields approximately two dozen cake balls. In my short cake ball career, I have learned that you will have a little bit of the mix leftover, but will have run out of chocolate to cover them. So yesterday I doubled the recipe and baked two cakes, used double the frosting and two bags of white chips for 50 cake balls.

Here is a cute cake pop tutorial…just skip the stick process if you’re making cake balls.

And if rolling 50 cake balls wasn’t enough, I chose to make Asian Turkey Meatballs for last night’s din din ~  flavorful and healthy at the same time. The dipping sauce put them over the top! I served them with a little brown rice and some steamed broccoli.

{the recipe makes 12 meatballs}

Alrighty, I’m gonna roll out and get some chores done.

Happy Monday!

P.S. My {webmaster} is conducting some upgrades/changes to Flip Flop Follies and may have made a little mistake while coding…the buttons on the sidebar aren’t linking up right now {and may not even be visible at this time}. Please bear with us until we can pinpoint the problem. Muchas gracias! XO

  2. Janet, the meatballs are delish….Elliott even ate them, but she was not thrilled with the “green things” inside! 😉 I hope your boys {all three of them} and you enjoy them! Great seeing you and Dylan on Friday! XO

  3. Leah, her site {http://www.the-girl-who-ate-everything.com} is amazing…this is also where I got the pumpkin pie dip! 😉

  4. Those meatballs look so yummy! I am worn out on our “same old” dinners so I am gonna give these a try! Thanks Amy! Hope you all are doing well! 🙂

  5. Paula, we just had the leftovers tonight and they’re just as good {if not better} the second time around! Hope you enjoy them! XO
