Triple Chocolate Toffee Bombs

I have one more Valentines treat to share with you but it was purely by accident. I had purchased this new Duncan Hines cake mix called Triple Chocolate and forgot about it. Over the weekend, the family was in the mood for something chocolate so I told them I'd just make this cake as a bundt cake. Well, I made it but my pan is shot because this is the third time I've made something in it and the cake stuck to the bottom causing a huge mess. So I decided to make cake balls with them. I used the same premise as the Oreo truffles but also found some Heath bits left in the closet so I threw in some of those for good measure as well. They were a definite hit (I mean really..who wouldn't like chocolate and toffee?!). You can dip them into regular, dark or white chocolate, it's completely your preference. I just mixed it up since I only had a little of each kind. Don't forget if the chocolate is a little thick, simply add a touch of oil to help thin it out. You can also use some sprinkles to make them festive but I didn't have much of those left either.  I like these best when kept in the freezer. 



Triple Chocolate Toffee Bombs
1 Package Duncan Hines Triple Chocolate Cake Mix, prepared
8oz. Cream Cheese, softened
2 c. Heath English Toffee Bits
White Chocolate, for coating
Semi Sweet Chocolate, for coating


Prepare cake according to package directions then let cool overnight. Add cake to a bowl and crush using a fork. Add in the cream cheese and toffee bits and mix well. Form into 1" round balls, place on parchment paper and freeze for approximately 30 minutes. Melt chocolate according to package directions and dip balls into the chocolate. Place on parchment paper until they are dried. Makes approx. 4 dz. 

Enjoy!

  3. Carrie, I'm drooling on my keyboard, and I love that you use cream cheese instead of frosting. I can't believe I'm say this, but sometimes cake balls can be too sweet. I can't wait to try these!

  4. Thanks for all of the great comments. @Joan Yes, they were sweet enough with the chocolate and toffee bits, I thought frosting would push it into sugar overload! lol
