Cake Balls

I made these small sweet bites for my in laws guest who are coming into town to have with tea and coffee. When you serve tea or coffee small is always the best way to go. These cute cake balls will save you a lot of time and give you a lot of results. You can bake a cake from scratch or use a box, whatever is best for you. I have found that the store bought cake mix works better because of its thickness. You can really do a lot with these and thats what makes a great recipe in the end. What I love is that for once you do not have to worry about your cake being even or falling. I mean you just tear it up after it has baked. I made three cakes to have several cake balls and tried to make each batch look a bit different.

1 box of cake mix or homemade cake mix
1 can of cake icing
1 chocolate baking bar

1. Bake cake as a sheet cake per instructions on recipe. Allow to cool then carefully add cake into a large bowl. Mix into crumbs with a fork, add 1/2 a can of frosting. Continue mixing with a forum until a dough like consistency. Place into refrigerator for 1 hour.

2. Add water into a 4-quart pan on medium-high heat. Place stainless steel bowl over pot of hot water and add baking chocolate, mixing. When chocolate has melted reduce heat to low. Meanwhile, shape cake dough into small balls. With a small spoon carefully place each ball one at a time into the chocolate covering completely. Place on waxed paper and cover. Refrigerate until needed.

Yields: 70

They look so nice! I made some a couple months ago with colored candy coating, it was fun!

My mother and cousin have a home bakery business and when they started making these last year, they became one of the top selling items! They have since changed the name to "cake truffles" because they would get little giggles out of people (lol).

I love your web page. Masha'Allah. you give me lots of ideas!
