Step 1

Bake cake as directed on box. Also, a little secret to making your box cake a little moister, add 1 package of vanilla pudding to the batter.

Step 2

After cake has been baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Once cooled, spoon cake into a medium bowl and add the whole container of frosting and mix together with a mixer. Refrigerate for 20 minutes to make the mixture a little more firm and easier to work with.

Step 3

In the mean time, crush about 25 Oreos in a bag and then transfer to a small bowl. Also, crumble up the baking chocolate in a small bowl and set aside.

Step 4

After the mix has chilled, melt the baking chocolate in the microwave. Next, form the cake/frosting mix into the size of golf balls , cover in melted chocolate, and then roll around in the crumbled Oreos. Set the newly made Cake Balls on a parchment paper lined baking sheet to fully set.

Will look burnt and gross but taste awesome.
