Have you ever had a cake ball? Or a cake pop? Or you at least know what I’m talking about?
If your answer is no, I’m afraid I can’t even dignify that with a response. I’m just going to send you straight over to Bakerella. She’ll explain it to you, and then you can come back over here when you’re good and educated on the cake-y concept that basically revolutionized dessert.
Kidding, kidding. I don’t really want you to leave :)
So, basically, we’re talking about baked cake all smushed up with canned frosting, rolled into balls, and dipped in chocolate. Very truffle-esque. Obviously, it’s delicious.
This bark is just an easier version of cake balls. I don’t know what it is, but the dipping part of cake balls is sort of a struggle for me. So if I can just smear down some chocolate, spread the cake ball filling over it, and then pour more chocolate on top instead– I’m good with that!
A note before you make these: if you make the top layer of chocolate thicker than the bottom layer, these will be a beast to cut into pieces. So be sure the top layer is spread just a bit thinner than the bottom layer. This is why the recipe instructs you to pour less chocolate on the top than on the bottom layer.
Don’t miss a bite!
