Cake Truffles, gourmet editions

I think that Cake Truffles are the perfect, small indulgence. It is said that the greatest pleasure on the tongue comes from the first couple of bites; and with the right cake truffle, that really is all you need. Moist cake, perfectly smooched with buttercream frosting then dipped in chocolate. But I like to take it a step further with unexpected flavor combinations that make each two-bite treat, a truly remarkable little journey for the mouth.  Some of my favorite flavors include:

Dark chocolate with caramel bits, dipped in dark chocolate then finished with a sprinkle of pink Himalayan  sea salt. (shown at right in foreground)

Mexican chocolate chile dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with Chimayo Holy Red Chile. (also shown at right in the rear of the tray)

Perfect Breakfast: Maple cake truffle center dipped in dark chocolate then topped with crispy applewood smoked bacon. (not sure? think of taking a bite of chocolate chip pancake drizzled in maple syrup with a bite of bacon as a chaser. You there? uh huh....)

Red Velvet Magic: the velvety rich Red Velvet truffle center encases a pearl of sweet cream cheese frosting before a dip in white chocolate.
