Ingredients: 
  • 150g Milk or Dark Chocolate Flavour Cake Coverings
  • 130g Madeira cake (shop bought or homemade), made into crumbs
  • A few drops of almond natural Extract

    To coat:

  • Grated and melted Milk or Dark Chocolate Flavour Cake chocolate
  • Chocolate Flavour Strands
  • Sugar Stars
  • Sprinkle Decorations
Method: 
  • Melt the chocolate flavour cake covering, either in the microwave or by placing in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Be careful not to over cook this or crystals will begin to form.
  • Add the crumbs and flavourings to the melted cake covering and mix thoroughly. Leave to cool slightly.
  • Shape the mixture into small balls.  Sprinkle the coverings of your choice onto saucers and roll the balls in the coverings.
  • If you want to drizzle with melted cake covering, melt as per the truffles.  Place the uncovered truffles onto a wire rack and dip a teaspoon into the meted cake covering and drizzle over the truffles (this could also be done using a piping bag).
  • Chill for 30 minutes and store in an airtight container.
