Delightful Cake Batter Chocolates for Sweet Moments











Indulge in the whimsy of Cake Batter Chocolates, a delightful and easy-to-make dessert that combines the joy of cake batter with the richness of chocolate. Perfect for parties or a sweet treat after dinner.


Step 1: Mixing the Base

Let's start by creating a delightful cake batter base. In a large bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk and 1 cup of powdered sugar until fully combined and smooth. This creamy mixture is the foundation of our chocolates and should have a delectably smooth texture. The joy of this step is watching the simple ingredients blend into something magical!
Pro Tip: Ensure your bowl is big enough to accommodate additional ingredients.

Step 2: Incorporating Cake Mix and Vanilla

Now, stir in the cake mix and vanilla extract to the mixture. This is where the fun really begins! The cake mix, whether you choose vanilla, chocolate, or any flavorful variety, will make the base come alive with flavor. The addition of vanilla extract adds that lovely aroma we all adore. It's key to mix these in well until you have a uniform, thick dough. It's almost like making a dough out of cake batter - unique and utterly delightful!
Pro Tip: Choose a cake mix flavor that will delight your taste buds.

Step 3: Forming the Chocolates

With the remaining powdered sugar, gradually mix into the dough until it's quite firm, akin to play dough. Now comes the really fun part - incorporating the sprinkles into your dough! Fold them in gently to distribute evenly. The twinkling colors popping through the dough are sure to bring a smile to your face. Next, shape the dough into cubes or balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. A little tip: slightly damp hands can make handling the dough easier and less sticky. Pop these into the freezer for about 20 minutes to firm up - a perfect task to do as you tidy up or sip on a cup of tea.
Pro Tip: Using damp hands makes shaping the chocolates much easier.

Step 4: Creating the Chocolate Coating

While your cake batter chocolates are chilling, let's turn our attention to the chocolate coating. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips in 30-second increments, stirring after each until fully melted - this usually takes about 2 minutes total. Stir in the vegetable shortening until the mixture is smooth and glossy. The shortening helps make the chocolate more dip-able and gives your chocolates that professional-looking finish. The anticipation of dipping the chocolates in this silken chocolate coating is almost as good as eating them!
Pro Tip: Ensure the chocolate mixture is smooth for a flawless coating.

Step 5: Dipping and Setting

Once the chocolates have set, it's time for the grand finale - dipping! Carefully dip each cake batter cube or ball into the melted chocolate, ensuring they are completely coated. Return them to the baking sheet and then pop back into the freezer or fridge to set. This moment is filled with anticipation as you wait for the final product to reveal itself. Once set, your Cake Batter Chocolates are ready to be devoured. Store them in the fridge to keep them firm and delightful. The completion of this recipe brings a sense of accomplishment and the joy of sharing something homemade and delicious with your loved ones.
Pro Tip: Use a fork for dipping the chocolates for less mess.
