I have made these many, many times throughout the years. I have added different extracts such as peppermint, orange, rum, raspberry to just plain yellow cake mix or your own favorite recipe for yellow cake mix. The trick I find most helpful is to NOT use warm cake but to let the cake cool, then add 1/2 container of cream cheese frosting to make it less sweet. If you need to you can always add more frosting. Form into balls and refrigerate for about an hour or longer, or you may freeze them for 15 min before dipping them in chocolate. This way they hold their shape and do not fall apart when dipping. Try to use the candy melts available at Michaels to dip the cake balls in. While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle with nuts, sprinkles, etc. If you are not into using frosting which does make it a little sweet, then you can also use flavored syrups or even sugar free syrups such as DaVinci syrups. Just crumble the cooled cake, mix in syrup a little at a time, maybe 1/2 cup, then form into balls, and continue to do same as with the frosting. These are a little less sweet so maybe some might like this technique better and tastier.
