I have one more Valentines treat to share with you but it was purely by accident. I had purchased this new Duncan Hines cake mix called Triple Chocolate and forgot about it. Over the weekend, the family was in the mood for something chocolate so I told them I’d just make this cake as a bundt cake.

Well, I made it but my pan is shot because this is the third time I’ve made something in it and the cake stuck to the bottom causing a huge mess. So I decided to turn my mistake into these Triple Chocolate Toffee Bombs.

I used the same premise as the Oreo truffles but also found some Heath bits left in the closet so I threw in some of those for good measure as well. They were a definite hit (I mean really..who wouldn’t like chocolate and toffee?!).

You can dip them into regular, dark or white chocolate, it’s completely your preference. I just mixed it up since I only had a little of each kind. Don’t forget if the chocolate is a little thick, simply add a touch of oil to help thin it out. You can also use some sprinkles to make them festive but I didn’t have much of those left either.  I like these best when kept in the freezer.Triple chocolate cake mix combined with cream cheese and toffee bits; then dipped in chocolate.

    Carrie, I’m drooling on my keyboard, and I love that you use cream cheese instead of frosting. I can’t believe I’m say this, but sometimes cake balls can be too sweet. I can’t wait to try these!

    Thanks for all of the great comments. @Joan Yes, they were sweet enough with the chocolate and toffee bits, I thought frosting would push it into sugar overload! lol
