I have been asked to make a number of items that are sugar free. I would like to make some cake balls but haven't seen a thread for it.

Is anyone making them? I know there is sugar free chocolate coating, but can't seem to find a wholesaler/distributor for it and retail is way too expensive to warrent making them. Does anybody know who sells it wholesale?

Also if you have any other ideas other than chocolate and nuts mixed.

Thank you all in advance

Why thank you so much for the info JanH. Really appreciate it. I did make a few with the recipies I have found. I can buy sugar free chocolae retail, but it is so... expensive. $9.00 a pound. And It does not yield very much. I would then have to sell them for about $3.00 ea and I just don't see that happening.

They did taste pretty good though.

Another thing, I can't even find who the brand name is of sugar free chocolate coating (known to some as candy melts)

You're most welcome. icon_biggrin.gif

(...No orders to fill, although I am going to make some Halloween cupcakes for my granddaughter. More like mini-smash cakes since she's so young. But I'll use any excuse to bake.) icon_lol.gif

Am just a "night owl" from so many years of working pm's and midnights with a knack for finding info on the 'net. Try to help out when I can. icon_wink.gif
