Cake Pop Truffle Balls


Yesterday was son # 3 birthday and I wanted to make something special for him on his 7th birthday. I have seen all those cool cake pop pictures so I decided to make some. I did not have any sticks so I made mine without. I never realized how easy this are to make but they do take some time to make them. All you need is prepared cake from a box, a can of frosting, a bag of white chocolate chips, and sprinkles. I used chocolate cake and frosting but other flavors will work too.
The first step is to make the cake according to the box directions and let it cool.


 Then you crumble the cake in a bowl into fine crumbs.


 Add 3/4 of the frosting to the cake crumbs and mix with your hands until very moist. This is messy but will feel like playdough.



Then chill the dough for 30 minutes so it is easier to work with. For the next step, line two baking sheets with wax paper or silicon sheets. using your hands roll the dough into balls and place on the baking sheets.


After all the dough is rolled, melt your chocolate in the microwave. Place the chocolate in a glass microwave bowl and cook on high for a minute, stir and cook for 30 more second intervals until melted. Now the fun part, place the dough ball into the melted chocolate and spoon the melted chocolate over it. Using the spoon, place the ball onto the wax paper and sprinkle with sprinkles. 






Then let the cake pop truffle balls cool and harden. Store them in the fridge. These are so yummy and worth the time to make. What flavor combination will you be making?
