Homemade from scratch, no-bake chocolate caramel cake balls are soft and has a gooey centre. It is a perfect dessert table idea for birthday parties, bridal showers, hens parties & baby showers.
I bake a lot of cakes for my blog and surely I have a lot of offcuts. some, end up in my tummy, some, end up as taste testing and the rest I was not quite sure what to do, so I created this amazing recipe that I can make using all my cake scraps.
I recently developed a recipe for chocolate swiss roll, oh my god so divine. I had a few offcuts, so I froze them and then used it to create this recipe. The best part is you can freeze the offcuts and thaw them as needed. it doesn’t really matter if it has frosting or glaze in it, it just gets smashed up and turned into a ball.
To make it interesting, I included a caramel centre, when you bite into it, it oozes out, ummmmm that feeling and then I coated it with a bar of chocolate from Three Chocolatiers. Premium chocolates handcrafted in Sydney. I personally love their range of chocolates. I have used the 56% dark chocolate and Milk chocolate salted caramel crunch, to get that extra dose of caramel flavour and crunch.
Is this similar to chocolate-covered cake balls and cake pops?
Yes, it is even better than that with the oozing centre
Best chocolate for dipping cake balls?
A blend of Milk and dark chocolate is always good as it gives a good creamy taste. The chocolates I used are 56% Dark chocolate and Milk chocolate salted caramel crunch from Three Chocolatiers. These two chocolates worked perfectly well as it gave a good chocolate flavour and a crunch from the salted caramel crunch.
What do I do if I don’t have cake scraps?
