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)

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.

I once was told by my Grandmother never allow a cake to dry always take it out of the oven when you see the side of he cake seperate from the pan. This i have found holds true with box cakes as well as from scratch. Hope this helps. Also she would always have a little bastin brush with good old H2o ready when she filped the pan ...
