Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan, using water, oil and eggs. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. Crumble cake into large bowl. Add frosting; mix well. Using 1-inch scoop, shape mixture into balls; place on cookie sheet. Freeze about 45 minutes or until firm. When firm, transfer to refrigerator. In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave red candy melts uncovered on High 1 minute 30 seconds; stir. Continue microwaving and stirring in 15-second increments until melted and smooth. Remove a few balls from refrigerator at a time. Using 2 forks, dip and roll 1 ball at a time in red coating. Return to cookie sheet; immediately sprinkle with red sugar crystals. Dip a total of 28 cake balls in red coating. Repeat melting instructions for white candy melts. Dip a total of 23 cake balls in white coating; immediately sprinkle with sparkling sugar. Repeat melting instructions for blue candy melts. Dip remaining 12 cake balls in blue coating; immediately sprinkle with blue sugar crystals. Refrigerate all coated cake balls about 10 minutes or until set.
