Chocolate Almond Bonbons

Chocolate Almond Bonbons



This is a terrific way to use Costco cake left over from parties and events. When cake and icing are mixed together, they make a fudgy, trufflelike center for these pretty treats.

1/4 Kirkland Signature chocolate half-sheet cake
4 cups (24 ounces) chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening

3 cups chopped almonds

In a large bowl, mix the cake with a wooden spoon until the cake, icing and filling are combined and uniform in color. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill the mixture for at least 1 hour or overnight.

Using a tablespoon, measure out the dough and roll into balls, placing each one on a baking sheet. Freeze for at least 30 minutes, or cover with plastic wrap to freeze overnight.

While the cake balls are chilling, melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave. Stir until smooth, then add shortening and stir until melted and blended with the chocolate.

Place chopped almonds in a shallow bowl or plate and set aside.

Remove 3 cake balls from the freezer. Drop 1 ball into the melted chocolate.
Using a spoon, cover the ball completely with chocolate. With a fork, lift out the cake ball from the chocolate, tapping the fork against the bowl to remove excess chocolate. Lift the handle of the fork to let the chocolate-covered ball roll off the fork into the chopped almonds. Cover the ball completely with almonds. Set aside on a baking sheet or serving platter.

Continue with the remaining cake balls, removing only 3 at a time from the freezer.

Store, covered, in the refrigeratorfor up to a week. Makes 50 bonbons.
