  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Make and bake cake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 2
    In large bowl, crumble cake. Add frosting; mix well. Roll into 48 (1 1/4-inch) balls; place on waxed paper-lined cookie sheets. Freeze about 45 minutes or until firm. Refrigerate to keep chilled.
  • 3
    In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave 10 oz of the candy coating and 1 tablespoon of the shortening uncovered on High 1 minute 30 seconds; stir. Continue microwaving and stirring in 15-second increments until melted and smooth.
  • 4
    Remove one-third of the balls at a time from refrigerator. Using fork, dip 1 ball at a time into coating. Place on waxed paper-lined cookie sheet; immediately decorate with sprinkles. Melt remaining 10-oz candy coating and remaining 1 tablespoon shortening; dip remaining balls. (Reheat coating in microwave if too thick to coat.) Serve at room temperature. Store in airtight container.

Expert Tips

If you want different colors of candy coating, add gel food colors--one fun color or a combination of colors. Just divide the candy coating into separate bowls for the number of colors you want.

Place cake balls in colorful miniature cupcake liners for serving.
