Cake Balls....or....Truffles?


 
Here's a great way to use up your leftover cake scraps!  This is the first time I have made these.  My daughter always makes them when we have parties and her hubby is always asking her to make them so he can take them to work! 

 

Make a cake of your choosing or use cake scraps.  You may use any cake mix flavor also.  Crumble the cake into a bowl.


Next add anywhere from 1/2 cup to 2 cups prepared icing, depending on how moist or dry the cake is.

 
Line a baking tray with wax paper or foil.  Use a melon baller as a scoop to form the mixture into balls.  When all of the mixture is used, place the baking trays into the freezer and freeze for several hours.  I like to do mine over night.

 
Using Almond Bark (white or chocolate) or a confectioners coating of you choice, melt in microwave as per instructions on package.  Using a candy fork, regular fork, tooth pick or spoon, dip cake ball into the hot melted chocolate, tapping off extra.

 
Freezing the balls will help keep crumbs to a minimum.  If the chocolate starts to cook off, microwave for to rewarm it.

 
Place on wax or parchment paper to cool.

 
Decorate as desired!!

 
I liked using this handy little bottle to cover the tops.

 
To make them look a little more elegant, you can use candy papers or the very small cupcake papers.  I really like how they look in them!!

 
These cake balls were covered in sprinkles and nuts.  Do this as soon as you take the balls out of the melted chocolate.

 
I used a candy mold to do these.  Just coat the bottom and sides of the mold and let set up in the freezer for a minute.  Then put the cake mixture in the middle and top with more chocolate.  These were really easy!!
