WHAT IS A CAKE TRUFFLE?
A cake truffle is a cake and frosting mixed and rolled into a ball. Dipped in melted chocolate and sprinkled with your choice of toppings.
TIPS FOR MAKING PEPPERMINT CHOCOLATE CAKE TRUFFLES
- You can use any cake mix that’s made from scratch, made from a mix, or even a leftover fancy cake from the store.
- When you form the cake truffles, use your hands to make it really simple…and of course, fewer dishes!
- You can make frosting from scratch or just get it canned from the grocery store.
- Do not get the cake too wet with the frosting, half a can is plenty.
- Chilling the truffles helps keep it together so make sure not to miss this step.
- Having a chocolate dipping tool is helpful but a fork or spoon works just fine.
- The cake truffles need to be extremely cold before dipping. Make sure you have enough room in your refrigerator or freezer for them. Chilling them on a large lined baking sheet makes it easy.
MAKE AHEAD INSTRUCTIONS:
Cover and keep at room temperature. You can store the undipped cake truffles in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or freeze them for up to 6 weeks. Allow thawing in the refrigerator then continue to dip the truffles.
HOW TO STORE PEPPERMINT CHOCOLATE CAKE TRUFFLES
You can also freeze the finished cake truffles for up to 6 weeks once the coating has fully set. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
