Cookies & Cream Cake Balls

I made cake balls for Valentine's Day this past week which I posted about here.  Chocolate is my husbands favorite thing ever and Oreos might be a close second.  
This combo is super easy.  It really just follows the basic guidelines of making regular cake balls and adding crushed Oreos.

1 box white cake mix
1 can of white vanilla icing
1 package of Oreos
1 package of chocolate candy coating

Make the cake according to the directions on the box.  Crush your Oreos and add to the batter.  {I didn't use the entire package but I guess this would be a personal preference.}  Bake the cake.  Let it cool once it's done baking.  Once the cake has cooled completely, scrape off the top crunchy layer that has darkened.  This way the cake crumbles stay nice and white.  Crumble up the cake.  Add a couple spoonfuls of icing to the crumbles and mix.  If you like your cake balls more moist then add more icing.  If you like them more on the dry side then add a little at a time until you reach the consistency that you desire.  Roll them up into balls.  Stick them in the freezer for 5 minutes or so.  Just enough to firm them a little but you don't want them to crack.  Melt the candy coating and coat the cake balls.  Place to the side to dry.  It's best to add sprinkles when they are about half way dry.  If you add them right away, they will slide off.  Enjoy!
Here is another cake ball tutorial of mine.
