These Minty Cake Fudge Bites are the best way to use your cake and frosting left overs. It is also less fussy and more elegant than a cake pop.
This is what I would qualify as a no waste recipe as it uses ingredients left over from my Mandarin Rosemary Fudge Cake. It is very much like a cake pop where you mash together cake crumbs and frosting, but I took out all the other steps like scooping and rolling.
The beauty of this recipe is that there are no measurements. All you do is put the leftover cake crumbs into a bowl and heat up the frosting a little so that it is easier to blend. Then you press it into an 8×8 square cake tin and cool it in the refrigerator until it hardens.
Once the cake bites are hard (this should take about an hour or so), cut them into small rectangles. I ended up with 36, with a few more trimmings that I just ate. Hehe.
Then you melt some dark chocolate with coconut oil and peppermint extract and start dipping in the cake bites.
This part can either be therapeutic or frustrating depending on your deposition. Repeat until all the Minty Fudge Bites are all covered in chocolate.
Then decorate with some coco nibs.
Let them harden again and then decorate with some edible gold if you have it.
All that is left for you to do is to eat it. Gah. It is almost like a tiny candy bar. Mixing together the fudgy cake AND the frosting is next level. I hope you and your friends enjoy this as much as mine are!!
If you make it let me know. I would love to share what you have made on @rezelkealoha.
