Cake Truffles (Cake Balls)

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

This was a really fun recipe. I used Betty Crocker Milk Chocolate Cake Mix with Betty Crocker Milk Chocolate frosting. I also added 1 cup of pecans to give it more texture. Make sure you allow the cake mix to cool down about 30 minutes before adding the frosting, otherwise the cake mixture will get too mushy. I did notice that I had to use way more confectioners coating then what was stated in the recipe. I actually used two 16 oz packages of confectioners coating instead of the 3 oz bar. I am not sure what I was doing wrong but that was a huge difference in chocolate. Then I drizzled milk chocolate confectioners coating over the white balls and white chocolate coating over the milk chocolate balls. Overall, these truffles turned out really good.

Cake Truffles (Cake Balls)

1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
1 (16 ounce) container prepared chocolate frosting
1 (3 ounce) bar chocolate flavored confectioners coating

Prepare the cake mix according to package directions using any of the recommended pan sizes. When cake is done, crumble while warm into a large bowl, and stir in the frosting until well blended.
Melt chocolate coating in a glass bowl in the microwave, or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth.
Use a melon baller or small scoop to form balls of the chocolate cake mixture. Dip the balls in chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper to set.
