Chocolate cake truffles

I had lots of leftover cake from trimming a 3 tiered cake. it seemed a waste to not use the leftover cake. I made this recipe and they were the first things to go at the Birthday party for which I baked.

Chocolate cake truffles


  • Leftover cake trimmings
  • 1Tbl. nutella per 1 cup cake trimmings
  • 1 11.5 oz bad bittersweet chocolate
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • white chocolate (for decoration)


  1. Using your hands combine cake and nutella really well.
  2. Form small, truffle-like, balls with the “cake dough.”
  3. Place truffles on cookie sheet lined with parchment.
  4. Heat cream in heavy sauce pan. When it begins to simmer pour over bittersweet chocolate. Stir until combined. Pour over the truffles.
  5. gently melt white chocolate in a squeeze bottle (I use a pot of very warm water). Use white chocolate to decorate, zig-zag over the truffles.
