9. Melt the chocolate wafers in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in 15 to 30 second intervals, checking and stirring each time so that the chocolate doesn’t burn.

10. Remove the cake balls from the freezer and dip half of them in the melted chocolate.

Tip: use a fork for dipping to help the excess chocolate drip from each ball.

Tips and tricks:

  • Turn these tasty treats into energy balls by adding nuts, seeds, chopped dried fruit, etc, to the filling.
  • A small cookie scoop works perfectly for achieving a uniform size.
  • A food processor or hand mixer make this great recipe even easier to make.
  • I like these truffles best when they are still a bit cold, but they take on a smoother texture at room temperature.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for a couple of days, if they last that long! If stacking, make sure to add a layer of wax paper in between.
  • Use oreo cookies instead to make tasty oreo truffles.
