Carrot Cake Truffles
Cake truffles are made of three things-
a crumbled cake- Check(I had that!)
white chocolate or dark chocolate for coating the crumb balls- Check(had that too- things are looking good so far)
and, cream cheese frosting that would help bind the crumbs together so that balls do not fall apart- Oops! Did not have cream cheese on hand! So I improvised. I had Greek yogurt  – I mixed that with a good splash of vanilla and icing sugar and got a healthier cream cheese frosting substitute!
Then I got to work. In a large bowl, I put the cake crumbs and added the greek yogurt frosting. This is where you get down and dirty. Using your hands, combine all the ingredients. You can later lick your hands for added measure- believe me, it helps! Chill the mixture for at least 2 hours. Cake truffle experts swear this is an important step, so do not skip it!
After two hours, or what seemed like eternity to me, form 1 1/2 inch balls from the mixture and place on a baking sheet preferably lined with parchment paper. Freeze at least 6 hours. Again a step crucial to making cake truffles, as pointed out by cake truffle experts!
Melt the candy melts or white chocolate. I used the microwave to melt the chocolate- can be done over a double broiler too. If using the microwave, be careful as to not burn the chocolate. I also heated the chocolate in small batches, so that I don’t have the problem of the chocolate hardening up on me.
Working in small batches, remove the balls from the freezer and dip the balls into warm chocolate. Refrigerate until ready to serve. (Well, I did read you need not refrigerate them as the chocolate tends to crack if refrigerated- but it was a hot day and I was scared they might spoil, so I refrigerated.
