Chocolate Covered Cake Hearts

 What you'll need:

-Frosting (your choice)
-Cake Mix (your choice)
-Red, Pink & White Melting Chocolate
-Cake Decorating Bag



 The how to:

-Make the cake according to the directions on the package.

-Crumble the cake into a bowl and mix in the frosting.







-Mix in enough frosting until you can make the cake stick together without falling apart.


-Cover the bowl and put it in the Fridge for about an hour.








-Shape the cake mix into hearts and balls shapes.  What ever size you want.


-Melt chocolate in bowls stirring every 30 seconds until melted.



-Drop the hearts/balls in the chocolate one at a time.

-Use a spoon to pour chocolate over them until completely covered.

-Scoop the hearts/balls up with a fork (don't spear them) and gently tap the fork on the side of the bowl.  The excess chocolate will drip off.

-Use a knife or fork to push the heart/balls off the fork and onto wax paper, filling any wholes with chocolate on a spoon.  Let harden.

-Place the white chocolate wafers in the frosting decorating bag.

-Microwave for 30 second intervals, mushing the chocolate between each, until chocolate is melted.

-Cut of the tip of the decorating bag creating a very narrow opening. (or use a small round decorators tip)



-Zigzag the white chocolate back and forth across the hearts/balls.

-Allow to harden.

-Trim off any extra chocolate around the edges with a sharp knife.


To add some variety to your sweets, use different kinds of sprinkles when decorating.
