Has anyone frozen cruffles after they've been dipped in chocolate? I've read where people have made cake balls, frozen them on a cookie sheet and transfered to ziploc bags in freezer so they just had to dip in chocolate at a later date. I want to bake, dip and FREEZE ahead of time. I will be busy the few days before Christmas so I'm trying to plan ahead so things aren't so rushed once the kids are home from school. If I can't freeze them already made, anyone know how many days can I make them ahead before they will start to go bad?

Sweetheart - How do you go about defrosting them without them sweating? Mine always get little drops of water on them when I defrost them after they have been dipped.

sweetooth94, you can make them now and they will be fine for Christmas, no need to freeze them. I just keep them in the refrigerator. HTH

Well, I have 800 of them rollled, undipped, in the freezer right now. They are due 12-21-10. I would really like to take them out, defrost them, and start dipping them. One of my issues is that I don't have enough fridge space to store them if I dip them early. I should say that my cake truffles are made with onlyt cake and a little water with extract it in. I do live in Michigan, and could put them in my garage, but that would be the same as freezing them. It is 10 degrees out right now. Any advice on a time schedule on thawing and dipping would be appreciated.

I only refrigerate those truffles that have a perishable binder, like cream cheese or smbc. Sheliabelle, since you don't use anything perishable, you don't need to refrigerate them. IMHO.

Do you feel that I would be able to start dipping them 5 days in advance without refrigeration? They will be placed in a cool area of my house. I am also placing a label on them stating "Best eatten cold" (this was another idea from someone here on CC).

Thanks everyone...good to know. I make cruffles all the time, but as others posted - they don't last long enough to go bad. I've never had to make more than several dozen at a time and since I want to do more than that for Christmas gifts and cookie trays - I wanted some insite on how to manage my time best. Thanks for the replies!!
