Leftover cake…What’s that???

I know there is no such thing as leftover cake….well usually :-) …But if you do happen to have any leftover cake or even cake crumbs when you level your cakes, there’s something really delicious that you can transform them into! Cake truffles are quick and easy to make, yet so yummy that they’re gone before you know it.

1 cup cake crumbs (any kind of cake will do)
1 tbsp heavy cream
1/4 cup melted chocolate (I used dark chocolate, but any kind will work….just go with what you like or have at home)

For coating
6 oz. (~3/4 cup) milk/dark chocolate

Mix the cake crumbs, cream and melted chocolate till it becomes smooth. Make balls with two teaspoons of mixture.

Melt chocolate for the coating. Cover a plate/cookie sheet with plastic wrap.

Dip the balls of cake mixture in melted chocolate and set aside on the prepared plate. Freeze the truffles for a few minutes for the chocolate shell to harden.

Remove from freezer and decorate with melted white chocolate, or dust with powdered cocoa or powdered sugar.

Store in refrigerator if you won’t be eating them the same day. Remove from refrigerator about 20 minutes before eating.
