Tasty Tuesday: Triple Threat Chocolate Truffles

If I wasn’t being good I’d be eating these. I made them a couple months back for no good reason except just to try them out after seeing similar ones here and here. They have been called cake balls, cake bombs and cake truffles all over the net. My coworkers just ask me for more of those “wonderful cake thingies from that one time”. I just smile because I have tons of variations in mind for future platters of cake truffles. These were triple chocolate flavored and will probably always remain my favorite type.

I forgot to slice into one so you could see the moist cake inside…how could I forget such an important thing?! I actually piped a chocolate filling into each chocolate cake truffle after forming them into balls, but right before dipping them into the candy chocolate coating. I know it’s hard to imagine how yummy that turned out…the insides literally melted in my mouth.

I had extra chocolate and sprinkles so I dipped some pretzels for the kids. They were happy I didn’t let any chocolate go to waste!

Making these is a sure fire way to make new friends! ;-)
