Honey Macadamia Truffles

My next Christmas box recipe comes from the Christmas 2016 edition of Better Homes and Gardens, and is Honey Macadamia Truffles.  These are so simple but so tasty.  You will need:

600g store bought caramel mudcake, icing removed
1/4 cup finely chopped honey macadamias
500g white chocolate melts
edible gold sprinkles

Finley crumble mudcake into  bowl.  Add the chopped macadamias and mix until it forms a soft, dough-like mixture.  Roll 1/2 tablespoons of mixture into balls and place on a lined baking tray.  Refrigerate for one hour.

Melt the white chocolate melts.  Dip the balls of mudcake mixture into the chocolate using a fork, coating the ball in chocolate.  Place the dipped cake balls back on the tray, and sprinkle with gold sprinkles.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until the chocolate is set.

Oh I didn't know you could use cake in truffles. So dumb of me! I've usually just made them with cream and chocolate and a flavouring like fruit. Such a clever idea!

Better Homes and Gardens! Such an Australian classic and one that had slipped my mind now we live over here. Clearly they continue to provide great food inspiration :-)
