I started out by making two different cake mixes, chocolate and vanilla. I let the cakes completely cool and then destroyed them with a fork; didn't want to dirty another dish so I did the destroying right in the pan.
After the cakes were a crumbly mess I added about 3/4 of a can of canned frosting to each cake and mixed it into the crumbs. There should be enough frosting in the crumbs to easily form a ball. Being the type of person that I am I like to do things myself and I really wanted to make my own frosting. However I have heard that the balls don't turn out as well with homemade frosting; hence the canned frosting.
The whole time I was dipping the balls in the chocolate I was worried about it being too thick. But after they cooled and I tried one I found it was delicious a little thicker and my worry was for naught.
This is the finished product. I dropped plates off to a few friends and satisfied my desire to spread some Valentine cheer.
Happy Valentines Day!
