Spring Strawberry Cake TrufflesKelsey Banfield
When I think of spring I get excited for fresh fruit. In just a couple months I’ll be back out at the strawberry fields loading up on all the delicious fresh red fruit I can manage to carry home. In anticipation of fruit season I decided to make these cute strawberry cake truffles. (They would’ve been pops but I was out of lollipop sticks!) My daughter was particularly taken with them because she loved that they were shaped to look like actual strawberries and made with strawberry cake. In a way they reminded me of the Strawberry Sprinkles Cupcake, only the cake recipe was not quite the same. To get in the mood for spring in your home give these a try and have lots of fun. Summer is almost here and we’ll be strolling the strawberry fields and picking fresh berries before you know it!
Spring Strawberry Cake Truffles
1 Strawberry Cake (13×9 size), crumbled
1 cup cream cheese frosting (homemade or store bought)
1 12 ounce bag white chocolate chips
Sprinkles or sanding sugar for decorating
1. Place the cake crumbs in a large bowl with 1/2 cup of the frosting. Start mixing the frosting and crumbs together, adding more frosting one tablespoon at a time, until you achieve the consistency of a playdoh.
2. Use clean hands to roll the crumb mixture in your hands to form them into wedge like strawberry shapes, or just make classic round truffles. Insert a lollipop stick or popsicle stick and refrigerate the pops while you melt the chocolate in the microwave.
3. One the chocolate is a smooth consistency dip the chilled cake balls in it until totally covered. Then decorate with sanding sugar or sprinkles and place on a plate lined with wax paper. Place the plate in the refrigerator and chill until the chocolate is totally set.
