I made these for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I had leftover yellow cake, so I added the cocoa, powdered sugar, mini chocolate chips and used rum for the binding agent. They were fantastic. I had so many good comments on them, that I will probably make them again. My daughter wants to include them in her Christmas gifts. She always makes homemade cookies or candies for friends.
I also made some using French vanilla coffee creamer as the binding agent. These too were really delicious. This site is a bad influence! I'm finding way too many things to experiment with -- and, of course, when you experiment, you have to try them yourself before you give them to anyone else to try!
The cake balls are much like truffles. They are rich and delicious.
I did these the other day with peanut butter as the binding agent. They were delicious!! I added peanut butter and conf. sugar to my cake scraps until I had a nice ball of dough then made little bites and dipped in melted choc. Needless to say my platter was completely empty at the dessert supper I took them to.
I finally made some! I used hazel nut creamer and a drop of rum. And pecans and all the other ingredients and dipped them in white chocolate they were awesome! ( I did manage to get ONE b4 dh and kids finished em off) LOL...but I didn't get pics of them. Only thing I did wrong is I think next time i will make them smaller.
I made these on Friday for a Barbeque and everyone went NUTS over them! I had left over marble cake so I just added ameretto flavoured coffee creamer, a shot of Baileys, almonds the p.s. and then dipped them in the chocolate candy melts that I added almond flavouring to. Before they dried I sprinkled nuts on top. My husband decided to name the Crema Lovehandles!!! I thought it was histerical and that is probably how they will be advertised!
okay, i am getting hungry now. what great ideas!!! i have some cake left in kitchen...i am going right now to throw it in the mixer and going to add peanutbutter and powder sugar....then will dip them in choc. i'll let you know how they turn out. this is amazing! i was trying to figure out what i could send with kids to church picnic( i cant attend because i will be taking gum paste lessons at micheals)
thanks, you guys are wonderful as always!!!!
Yes indeed My DH is quite the comedian!!!! But now the name has stuck with the Chocolate Balls being called Lovehandles. I love the Chocolate Balls of Goodness! AND VERY SMART about keeping the guys away!
