Start by making your favorite kind of cake (in this case, I just used a boxed chocolate cake mix). Just follow the directions on the box and bake it. After it cools, crumble it up into a bowl. Stir in some frosting so that the cake crumbs will form into balls. One cake made about 55 (quarter-sized) balls.
Now here's the fun part. After I had all the balls rolled and onto a cookie sheet, I started to melt my candy melts. I bought my chocolate mint candy melts at Hobby Lobby. You can also buy them at Michael's or Gygi's or anywhere else that sells candy making supplies.
To melt the candy melts, just put them in a dish in the microwave. Stir them every 30 seconds until they are melted and smooth. Then send the little cake balls for a swim. I dipped them and put them on waxed paper until they hardened. Oh, and I added a few stars for fun.
