Cake Balls
You have to try these with orange cake. It's a hard mix to find, but once you try it you will be hooked. At least that's what I have found. Oh yeah and a tip - start out using only half of a can of icing. Then add sparingly til you get the right consistency. I rarely ever use more than half a can. Helps with the sticky factor because ideally it shouldn't stick to your hands.

Best Ever Popcorn Balls
I loved this recipe and thought it was very easy. I did make a couple of changes - I added 2t of vanilla and cut the powdered sugar to 2 cups. I mixed the popcorn and the sugar mixture in a dutch oven and let it sit covered for about 10 minutes before I tried shaping the mixture into balls. It didn't burn my hands and it still stuck together nicely. I did go back after shaping the balls and compressed each one a little more so they wouldn't fall apart. All in all, a very easy and tasty recipe!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball
I have made this twice and each time it has been a big hit! I made the first one for a bridal shower and I used 2 C of the powdered sugar per some reviews. I put chopped milk chocolate inside and toasted pecans and heath toffee bits on the outside. The second one I made for a work pot-luck and I put in chopped white chocolate inside and heath toffee and shaved milk chocolate on the outside. I served both with honey pretzel sticks, cinnamon graham cracker sticks, and granny smith apples. The hardest part is getting into a ball shape. I froze mine in a metal bowl after mixing for an hour or so. Then I scooped it out of the bowl and though it was sticky, I could get it roughly into a ball. I put the toppings on a plate and immediately rolled the ball into them. Once you get the toppings to stick, then it is much easier to handle and it keeps its shape without sticking to your hands. I wrapped it plastic wrap and put in the freezer overnight. It doesn't get rock hard and softens quickly. The colder it is, the better is retains its' shape. You will be asked for the recipe, I promise. It is such a simple recipe and it really makes a statement.
