I made these according to the recipe except that I used chocolate candy melts instead of the almond bark stuff you get at the grocery store and froze the cake mix/frosting balls for a couple hours before dipping. I bit into one to test it after they were done and oh my word. The reviews that said they tasted uncooked (like cake batter) and/or like they had already been chewed were right. I immediately went out to the store and got another cake mix. My problems with the first round were that the combination of the freezing, too much frosting, and the fact that cake mixes you buy these days have pudding in them and therefore are already very moist all contributed to making the insides a mushy mess. So. I made my new cake, crumbled it up, and formed one small test ball out of just cake crumbs, no frosting. I put it in the fridge, not freezer, for a couple of hours, then dipped it in the chocolate. The result? Exactly what I had envisioned these to be. CAKE inside, not cake-batter-tasting mush. I say, don't use frosting at all...It only makes things mushier, not to mention it makes these much less horrible for you, and DON'T freeze them before dipping...Just put them in the fridge.
