I've got the baking itch. I decided to make "cake truffles" tonight. I've never made them before and I hear people talk about them all the time so I decided to give them a try. I got the idea for them from Bakerella. The ones she makes are seriously cute, she even makes them into mini pops. Mine were not as amazing.
What you need:
1 box of cake mix- any flavor you want. Tonight I went with a marble cake.
1 can of store bought frosting. I used a coconut pecan one tonight.
After the cake balls cool, melt the chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave. Dip the balls in the chocolate and place them on a sheet of wax paper to cool.
OK, so here's the deal. I was seriously impatient tonight and didn't let things cool as I should have. My cute little cake balls look more like boulders than spheres. While I was melting my chocolate some of the steam got in there and my chocolate got all wonky. Oh well. They may look ugly but they still taste pretty good.
