Witches and One-eyed Monster -Cake Balls

For a Young Women's activity my talented friend taught the girls (and me) how to make these fun Halloween cake balls.
So here are the basics:
*Bake one box of chocolate cake as directed.
*After cake is cooled crumble it into a large bowl and mix in 1 can cream cheese frosting
*Roll mixture into quarter size balls, lay on a cookie sheet, and stick one sucker stick in each
*Chill in fridge for several hours

*Melt your choice of chocolate (we did purple and green colored) in microwave per directions on package
*dip cake ball in chocolate and decorate as follows
For Witch: chow mein noodles for hair, oreo cookie and kiss for hat and orange frosting for eyes
For One-eyed Monster: Half of a marshmallow and one M&M for eyeball

As you can see the girls are not perfectionists... that's what makes these so darn cute.
LOVE that warty lookin' witch!
