Homemade Chocolate Cover Balls

Hiyo GGG bakers,

Listening to: Come On Eileen – Dexys Midnight Runners

I know we’ve done cake pops in earlier posts done by myself and boss-emily and I can assure you this post is very similar to those posts just without the sticks and when I had done it last I hadn’t made them from scratch so I would like to share my new experience with you, readers 🙂

1. Bake cake and once cooled cut into quarters

2. Take each quarter and crumble each piece by rubbing them against each other into fine crumbs. Be sure to crumble any large pieces. Repeat throughout all quarters

3. Mix together icing and cake crumbs. Spoon in icing in small doses so as to not over moisturize the crumbs

4. Continue to mix together until crumbs are fairly lumpy

7. Place balls into chocolate and cover completely with using a spoon

8. Place each coated ball onto wax paper

9. If you wish to not decorate leave balls to cool and enjoy!

Decorating

Here are two simple decorating methods with left over sugar crystals I had and excess chocolate.

Sugar coating: while balls are still wet, sprinkle sugar crystals onto centre of balls

Chocolate drizzle: when balls are dry with a spoon streak melted chocolate above each ball

My coworkers and family seemed to enjoy them a lot! I think it has a lot to do with the icing and chocolate lol
