How to Make Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake Truffles


  • 1Preheat oven to 350* F
  • 2Prepare cake mix as instructed on back of box. Once all ingredients are mixed together pour into a 9x13" cake pan. Bake in the oven for 35-40 mins until you can stick a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean.
  • 3Let the cake cool for about an hour or so and crumble it into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the can of Cherry Cake Frosting. Make sure all the cake is coated with it. Put it in the fridge to cool for 2-3 hours (or overnight if you have time.)
  • 4Once the cake is cooled off, pinch off a little piece of it and flatten it out. Take a maraschino cherry (dry them off before you use them) and place it in the middle of the flattened out filling and roll it into a ball. Do this until you have either ran out of cherries or ran out of cake.
  • 5After you have made as many balls of dough as possible heat up the chocolate chips on low heat in a teflon based kettle. It may be a little thick after it is melted. You can thin it out by adding a tsp of vegetable oil at a time until it gets to your desired consistency. Dip the cake truffles in the chocolate and lift them out with a fork. Place on waxed paper to set and cool. Garnish with whatever topping you would like. I like to use shaved almonds on mine.
