Spice Cake Truffles

Ingredients

3 cups spice cake scraps
1/2 pound tempered milk-chocolate (may also use candy melts if desired)
dash of cinnamon or ground cloves

Preparation

1
Using your hands, crush the cake scraps until you have fine crumbs
2
Start by adding 2 Tbsp. brown sugar swiss meringue to the cake crumbs and knead the meringue into the crumbs
3
Continue to add swiss meringue until the cake crumbs will form into a ball and hold together
4
Fill a medium sized ice-cream scoop with the mixture, roll into a nicely shaped ball with your hands and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment
5
Place baking sheet in a pre-heated 300 degree oven and bake for 5 minutes (this is to form a slight crust on the cake truffle to aid in dipping)
6
When cake truffles are cool, temper chocolate or melt the candy melts and dip each cake truffle using a dipping fork
7
Place truffle on a parchment-lined baking sheet, sprinkle a tiny bit of cinnamon or ground cloves for decoration
8
Allow chocolate to set and enjoy!
