Cake Truffle (Rum Free Rum Balls)
250g cake crumbs (half of a slab of store-bought ready to decorate sponge cake)
100g milk chocolate, melted
2 tbsp raspberry jam
2 tbsp water
½ cup moist coconut flakes
Dr Oetker Ready to Roll Icing Green
Dr Oetker Ready to Roll Icing Red
Dr Oetker Easy Choc Milk
Dr Oetker Easy Choc White
Crumble the cake into a large sized bowl.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring well after 15 second blasts until completely smooth.
Mix together the raspberry jam and water until smooth.
Add the coconut, melted chocolate, and jam mixture to the cake crumbs and mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
Take two level tablespoons of mixture and, using clean hands, roll into a ball. Set on a tray lined with baking paper. Once all the mixture has been used, place in the fridge for 10 minutes.
While the cake truffles chill, prepare your decorations.
Roll out Green Ready to Roll Icing to about 3mm thick, and use a mini leaf cutter to cut small leaves from the green icing. If you don’t have a mini leaf cutter, carefully use a small sharp knife.
Roll Red Ready to Roll Icing into small balls about 3mm in diametre to create holly berries.
Melt the Easy Choc Milk and Easy Choc White according to directions on the packaging.
Take the chilled cake truffles from the fridge and use a fork to submerge them into the Easy Choc Milk. Place back onto the baking paper lined tray.
While the cake truffles dipped in Easy Choc Milk are setting, follow the package instructions to melt the Easy Choc White.
Use a spoon to drip a small amount of Easy Choc White on top of the cake truffles to add a drizzle of “custard”.
Working quickly before the Easy Choc sets, add two green leaves and three holly berries to turn your cake truffles into cute little Christmas puddings!
