Would you like chocolate with that?


This week I made some cake truffles! They are so very yummy and pretty easy to make, although time consuming. I used Bakers chocolate first and that was good, but I think I like using Wilton's candy melts even better. They were more candy like with the Wilton's candy melts.

All you have to do is bake a cake, then scrape it into a bowl and break it up into pieces, mix in your choice of frosting (I used chocolate, of course). Now then I was having some trouble mixing the cake and frosting so I put a little bit of it in a mixer and added a little milk. I think that helped make it a little more moist and easier to mix together. I then poured the mixer stuff into the bowl with the rest of the cake and frosting and mixed together well. Then roll them into little balls (trust me when I say "little" because they are very sweet). Refrigerate or freeze for at least a few hours, this makes them easier to cover in the chocolate. Using the candy melts (you can buy these at Walmart Super Center in the wedding/craft area) cover each ball in chocolate. I just melt the chocolate in a bowl and then use two forks to stir the truffle and it also allows the exess chocolate to fall off through the fork prongs. Here are some pictures of the truffles! Enjoy! For more chocolate go to Stop and Smell the Chocolates!
