Or cake truffles?  Or Un-cake pops?

Basically, I used the cake pop recipe (box cake crumbled with 1/2 container frosting, dipped in melted chocolate), but just left out the stick.  I've never made truffles before, so maybe this is exactly how you make a cake-like truffle?  I'm not sure.

Anyway, I was commissioned to make these for a St. Patty's Day party (in case you couldn't tell!) and they were a huge hit!  I finally managed to melt chocolate successfully, after at least two previous failed attempts, so I'm pretty happy with how these came out.  The angle of the photo even covers the dipping fork marks nicely!  Wink

Thanks for looking!  Have a Happy Shamrock Day!

Look yummy! And congrats on getting the chocolate to melt right.

I saw a martha stewart recipe a while back where she made these but put some rum in when mixing the cake and frosting, I think she labeled them as rum balls, so maybe these would be cake balls?

I like how you served them in cupcake wrappers (mini ones i'm assuming?), solves the messy fingers/germy hands problem without the stick. I always hate buying those if I don't have to, maybe its just me but they seem so expensive for soemthing you're gonna throw away after one bite.
