A cake truffle a day keeps the doctor away...

...or something like that.

When the in-laws were in town, I decided we needed some cake truffles to have around for snacking. :) I went with what I think of as "the original," red velvet.

I used some extra white candy melts from making monograms to make toppers to go on the cake truffles. They're made just the same as monograms...pipe the shape, then add on the sprinkles. For more details, click here.

I thought it would be fun to make all lowercase "e's" for our last name, but they ended up looking like blobs, so I made a mix of E's and dots and stars and hearts. (Hope you can see in the picture.) To some, I just added sprinkles.

And then, there was the extra chocolate. It just seemed wrong to waste it. SO, I dipped graham crackers. Oh man, were they good! I'll be doing that again!

  12. I have made these and they are really awesome right from the freezer too. I had too many (imagine that!) so I froze them and whenever we had the craving we could just grab one from the freezer. I actually like them better that way!

  14. I LOVE cake truffles...and if it were possible for me to only eat one per day I would make them more often! I like the graham dipping idea. I always feel bad about the extra chocolate.

  18. Can you believe all of this time baking and blogging and I have not tried the truffles yet? I have no idea what I'm waiting for! Yours look so good and I love the sprinkles! What an adorable idea! I recently have been going through a graham cracker phase so this is perfect for me and the kids will eat ANYTHING dipped in chocolate so to them this will be a match made in heaven! Thanks for sharing!

  20. I LOVE those cake balls! I made several batches over the holidays. My hubby's birthday is in Aug, and that's what he wants instead of cake - would be fun if I could do the monogram!

    Have a GREAT weekend!
