Divide evenly into mini muffin pan. Bake 20 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes, remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
- STRAWBERRY CAKE: Line 24-cup mini muffin pan with paper liners. Spray 9×13-inch pan with cooking spray. Beat cake mix, 3 eggs, 1 cup water and 1/3-cup vegetable oil in a large bowl with an electric mixer until blended, about 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes.
- Divide half of the cake batter evenly into mini muffin cups, filling about 3/4ths full. Pour remaining batter into 9×13-inch pan. Bake 14 to 17 minutes, until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool completely.
- CAKE TRUFFLES: Break cooled 9×13-inch cake into large pieces, place in large bowl and stir in 1/2-cup frosting. Roll into balls, place on waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
- Pour chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon oil into a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 30 seconds. Stir and continue microwaving in 15-second increments until melted; stir until smooth.
