5.Remove a few cake balls from freezer, keeping the rest frozen until ready to coat. Hold one cake ball over bowl of chocolate on a fork. Optional: Modify a plastic fork and remove the two inner prongs to allow for further dripping from the chocolate. Spoon white chocolate over cake ball, turning ball as needed until completely covered, and allowing excess to drip off. Place ball on a sheet of wax paper and allow chocolate coating to harden. Repeating for remaining cake balls. Place the remaining frosting into a piping bag and decorate the top of the cake balls as desired. Top with Valentine’s day sprinkles from frosting tub.
