It can be difficult to find good cake ball recipes that turn out like they should, but this recipe manages to produce perfect treats. The cake balls, once chilled, are the perfect consistency for dipping, and it is not hard to make them look like the photos in the original recipe post. Be sure to let the white chocolate harden before adding the chocolate drizzle- doing so will allow the sprinkles to adhere only to the melted chocolate.
