What a week! And it’s only Wednesday. I’m still blundering about, but with less-disastrous results so far. If I make it to the weekend, I’ll be making cake truffles. They’re perfect for comfort eating and impossible to get wrong.

1 Box of cake mix

1 Can of cake frosting

200g Good-quality chocolate

Prepare the cake according to the instructions on the box. Once it’s cooled, place it in a bowl and mash it with 1/2 the can of frosting.

Roll the cake/frosting mixture into balls, place them on a baking sheet, and pop them in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Melt the chocolate in short bursts of medium heat in the microwave, taking care not to let it burn. Remove the cake balls from the fridge and then carefully dip them – one at a time – in the melted chocolate. Once they’re well coated, place on a baking sheet to harden. You can top them with sprinkles if you like. (I do!)
