Ever since I took a cake pop class two springs ago, I’ve been hooked on this delicious dessert. I love trying new variations, such as my pink lemonade cake pops or hay stack version. Recently, a friend was telling me that she’s started leaving the stick out of her cake pops. It creates more of a chocolate truffle dessert with cake inside instead of chocolate.
I created a version of these black tie cake pop truffles for Baby M’s Little Man Sip and See. They were our guests favorite dessert and I found them more approachable than the stick version. Guests couldn’t stop eating them. Even my mom, who doesn’t like most desserts, loved popping these bite sized cakes.
They taste even better than their cake pop cousins. I found placing them in mini white cupcake liners made them pretty even without a stick.
All You Will Need Is:
white cake – baked and cooled
1 container of vanilla frosting
1 package of milk chocolate candy melts
1/2 package of white chocolate candy melts
spoon/squeeze bottle/ icing pouch
mini white cupcake liners
1. Bake the white cake according to directions. Let it cool completely.
2. Crumble up the white cake in a bowl. Mix in three quarters container of vanilla frosting.
3. Roll cake balls about the size of a ping pong or golf ball. Place on wax paper on a chilled cookie sheet. Put in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes.
4. Melt the milk chocolate candy melts in the microwave in 20 to 30 second intervals. Stir in between intervals to make sure the chocolate is completely melted.
5. Using a large spoon, dip each cake ball in the chocolate. Completely cover each ball with chocolate. Place on the wax paper.
After you have covered all of the cake balls, place them in the freezer for about five minutes.
6. Melt the white chocolate candy melts in the microwave in 20 to 30 second intervals. Stir in between intervals for even melting.
7. Remove the chocolate covered cake balls from the freezer, place the white chocolate in an icing bag or squeeze bottle. You can also use a spoon.
Drizzle the chocolate balls with the white chocolate. Let harden.
8. Place each finished cake ball truffle in a mini white cupcake liner.
These black tie cake pop truffles were easy to make and a great addition to our dessert table. I love how such a sweet and simple dessert can add a sophisticated touch.
