Cake Truffles

Cake Truffles

For those of us who need a fabulous last minute Valentines Day idea…
A couple of weeks I ran across a fabulous idea for dessert! They are small bite sized cakes dipped in chocolate or candy coating. Since then I’ve made a few different batches because they are just that good and easy to make. For a Super bowl party I made chocolate cakes with peanut butter candy coating and for a Valentine’s Day party I made red velvet cakes with chocolate coating and strawberry cakes with white chocolate coating. You can also put these on sticks for a “cakes pop” of sorts. Really fun! I don’t have kids but I bet they would love these. My husband can’t keep his hands off of them. I’ve seen this recipe on allrecipies as well as some popular food blog and. It’s definitely a keeper!

Cake Truffles

INGREDIENTS
1 cake box (variety of your choice)
1 can of cream cheese icing
1 coating of your choice (chocolate bark or candy coating)
*You can get a variety of candy coatings at your local craft store; at Michael’s I was able to find the peanut butter candy melts. For
chocolate bark go to the cake isle in
the grocery store.

DIRECTIONS:
1. Make cake according to directions on box. Let cool for 15 minutes at least.
2. Destroy cake by thoroughly mixing in 1 can of cream cheese icing (My favorite part!). Warning-Spoonfuls of this mixture are killer and highly addictive, could lead to food coma!
3. Next, Roll mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50, but you can get even more if you use a mini ice cream scooper.)
4. Chill for several hours. (You can speed this up by putting in the freezer.)
5. Melt chocolate/candy coating in microwave per directions on package. (I also only melt a few pieces of chocolate bark at a time because it starts to cool and thicken. It’s easier to work with when it’s hot.)
6. Roll balls in chocolate and lay on wax paper until firm.
