Cake balls or pops are bite size balls made of crumbled cake mixed with frosting and covered in chocolate or candy coating. They are easy to make and can be decorated for a variety of holidays or occasions.
MIX cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until well blended. SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Dip in melted
chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with
remaining cookie crumbs. REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
Use a small cookie cutter to push the mixture through for heart shaped truffles. Also, it helps to freeze the uncoated balls for a few minutes to keep the mixture from starting to fall apart in the melted chocolate. If this becomes a problem, dip them in the chocolate, let dry and then dip again. They are also good dipped in regular milk chocolate bark.
Place unwrapped chocolate squares in
microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 2-1/2 min. or until chocolate is
completely melted, stirring every 30 sec.
How to Easily Dip Truffles
To easily coat truffles with the melted
chocolate, add truffles, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2
forks to roll truffles in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove
truffles with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl.
Place truffles on prepared baking sheet; let stand until firm.
