STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE TRUFFLES

Strawberry Shortcake Truffles - Butter With a Side of Bread

The other day when I was at the grocery store the other day I saw an angel food cake and the wheels started turning. I’ve made cake balls out of lots of other types of cake, but have never tried it with angel food cake before. I added some fresh strawberries and a whipped cream frosting, dipped them in white chocolate and ended up with little bite-sized treats that taste just like strawberry shortcake!

STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE TRUFFLES

  • 14 oz angel food cake (the round kind)
  • 1 lb strawberries, diced in very small pieces
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 lb white chocolate

Using your hands, crumble up the angel food cake as much as you can and place in a large bowl. Angel food cake doesn’t crumble quite as well as regular cakes, but don’t worry about the larger pieces. Set the cake crumbs aside and mix up the frosting. Beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form and then add the remaining ingredients, mixing until smooth. Add the frosting to the angel food cake crumbs and use the mixer to combine – using the mixer will help to finish the crumbling of the cake into finer crumbs. Fold in the diced strawberries.

Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on waxed paper. Freeze the balls for about an hour before dipping. You can use any chocolate you like for dipping – I used this White Chocolate from Chocoley.com – I absolutely love using their chocolate because it melts so easily and smoothly and the taste is incredible! To melt the chocolate, microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval just until chocolate is smooth and completely melted. Dip each cake ball in the chocolate and place on waxed paper to set. Keep truffles in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Enjoy!

  1. I made these for a friend's birthday and everyone loved them. Only question is should the cut strawberries drain before adding them to the cake.
