By Austin Texas Dinner Party Chef,
A delicious, moist, cake ball, chocolate covered dessert that will melt in your mouth….DELISH! If you feel guilty when eating dessert in general then this is a great dessert, that is served as a small portion, and not a \”Whole\” piece of cake. Wonderful Chocolatey goodness that melts in your mouth!
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 85 Minutes
Yield: 25 Cake Pops
– 1 container of chocolate frosting
– 1 box of Duncan Hines Chocolate Cake Mix
– 11 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
– 1 cup of water
– 1/3 cup of oil
– 2 eggs
1. Prepare the cake according to the package directions; fill cupcake tins 3/4 full and bake at 350°F for 19-21 minutes.
2. Set cupcakes on the counter to cool; they should be cool to the touch before you begin working with them. (If you are crunched for time, once the cupcakes are done, chill in freezer for 10-15 minutes.
3. When the cupcakes are cool, rip each cupcake into pieces, creating fine crumbs; put them in a separate bowl. You will need 4 cups of the crumbs and the mixture should resemble sand.
4. Add 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons frosting to your cake crumbs. Get ready to get your hands dirty. Mix the frosting and the cake together until there are no extra crumbs and you can handle the chocolate cake mass like you would handle cookie dough.
5. Roll golf ball size cake bites onto a cookie sheet covered in aluminum foil. When you are done, pop them in the freezer for an additional 10 minutes.
6. While the cake pops are firming up, melt an 11 oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate on the stove-top on the lowest possible heat. To avoid the chocolate from burning, use a double boiler or boil a pot of water and place a heatproof bowl with the chocolate in it.
7. Take your cake pops from the freezer. Put one cake ball in the chocolate glaze and with two spoons, roll it around to make sure that it is fully coated. Pick up the cake ball using spoons and drop it back on the aluminum foil. Repeat this for all of the cake balls.
8. Pop them in the fridge until the chocolate becomes smooth to the touch. Then, push your wooden spools about 1/3 of the way into each cake pop. Enjoy!
