Ingredients

  • 2 cups Triple Chocolate Cake Mix
  • ¼ cup Ganache (instructions below)
  • 1 tbsp diced candied orange peel
  • 1 tbsp orange frozen puree
  • ½ tbsp Grand Marnier
  • 14 oz. coating chocolate
  • Ganache Ingredients:
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup bittersweet chocolate

Baking Instructions

  1. Bake triple chocolate cake mix as directed on the back of the box in a 13"x 9" cake. Allow to cool completely.
  2. Crumble cake up into a large bowl.
  3. Add prepared ganache, orange peels, Grand Marnier and orange puree and stir until incorporated.
  4. Roll mixture into walnut-sized cake balls and transfer to a wax paper lined baking cookie sheet. Make sure balls are tightly packed and look smooth with no cracks.
  5. Transfer cookie sheet with cake balls to freezer or refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. Place coating chocolate in a small, deep microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring each time until completely melted. The melted coating should coat a spoon but will still be able to slowly drip off. If coating is too thick, add shortening or vegetable oil ½ teaspoon at a time. Do not exceed 2 tsp. per 16 oz. of coating or the cake pops will crack.
  7. Remove cake balls from freezer. Dip tips of lollipop sticks into coating chocolate and insert sticks into cake balls no more than halfway into center. Let them set for 1 to 2 minutes, resting on the cake ball, sticks in the air.
  8. Pick up cake pop by the stick and dip into the coating chocolate. Gently tap stick against the side of bowl and rotate cake pop to help excess coating fall back into bowl. (Reheat and/or melt more glace as needed).
  9. Poke stick of cake pop into Styrofoam block to stand up straight and dry completely, about 5 minutes.
  10. Ganache Instructions:
  11. In a medium size pan, bring the cream to a simmer, remove from the heat, add the chocolate, and stir to incorporate.

Tips

Turning an Orange Delight into a Tropical Orange Delight

Turning an Orange Delight into a Tropical Orange Delight

If you are using the Duncan Hines "Orange Supreme" Cake Mix, to add a lovely tropical delight to the cake, cupcakes, etc. Add a (whole) package of Coconut Shavings to the Cake Mix after mixing it up. After you add the coconut into the mix, remix the cake batter for another couple minutes just to make sure the shavings are nicely mixed through. I recently did this with my Bella Spiral Cake Maker, it makes 5 mini cakes for each session. They have some great reviews from the friends that had them.

My Mother always taught me to substitute the water called for in a baking item to milk to improve the item's flavor. I've always gotten complements on my cakes, brownies and muffins because of this.
