Espresso Cake Bites

Espresso, chocolate, cake, more chocolate, bite size. Need I say more?! Chocolate and coffee lovers alike. Even if you don’t like coffee, I think you would like these. The espresso is a subtle addition once combined with frosting and then coated in chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1 box Duncan Hines Chocolate Cake Mix (plus ingredients required for cake)
  • 1/2 of a (16 oz.) container Duncan Hines chocolate fudge frosting
  • 8 Tablespoons coffee grounds (instant or fresh ground)
  • 2 packages (16 oz.) Chocolate CANDIQUIK Coating

Baking Instructions

  1. Prepare cake mix as directed on box. Add 8 tablespoons of ground coffee beans (or instant coffee) to cake mixture before baking. Once finished baking, allow to cool.
  2. Crumble cake into a large bowl. Mix thoroughly with frosting (it may be easier to use fingers to mix together).
  3. Chill mixture for approximately 2 hours in the refrigerator (you can speed this up by placing in the freezer).
  4. On a wax lined baking sheet, roll mixture into 1 inch balls.
  5. Melt Chocolate CANDIQUIK® Candy Coating in Melt and Make Microwaveable Tray™ according to the directions on the package.
  6. With a spoon, dip each cake ball into the Chocolate CANDIQUIK and coat completely. Return to wax lined baking sheet.
  7. Optional: Top each cake ball with an espresso bean before coating is dry. Once dry, drizzle with chocolate Candiquik.

Tips

Moist cake

Moist cake

I always add an extra egg to the recipe. If the recipe calls for 2 eggs, I put in 3 and so on. This works for cakes, brownies, muffins, as well as cake style cookie recipes.


Brownie baking tip

Brownie baking tip

I know they always say for best results always follow the recommended cooking instructions but I always find if I bake my brownies at 325 for 25 min. instead of 350 for 30 min they come out much chewier, moist and fuggy . You always want to take your brownies out of the oven when they are still slightly gooey in the middle because they will continue to cook while cooling in the pan.
