After a recent baking project, I found myself with a few leftovers - a naked layer of chocolate cake, a few cups of really good quality buttercream, and a cup of cereal crumbs. Rather than throw these items away, I made a fun snack out of them - Cake Truffles!
Here's what I did: I crumbled the cake layer, put it in my stand mixer, and mixed the crumbs with enough buttercream to make a chocolate truffle-like dough. Then I used my #100 scoop to portion out bite-size amounts, chilled them until firm, and gently rolled them between the palms of my hands before coating them with the leftover cereal crumbs. Toasted coconut, sprinkles, or chopped nuts would have been great too. Don't you love it when you can make something so fun and delicious out of leftovers?
