I’ve developed a love for stuffed food. It started as a tiny little seed a few months ago when I made cake batter bark brownies. But now it’s sort of a secret obsession.
I blame Hayley, The Domestic Rebel and her out-of-bounds creations! Have you seen her Capookie? What is this you ask? Well it’s every dessert you’ve ever wanted all rolled into one! Pie, cake, cookies AND sprinkles!!! It’s sort of insane. Go check it out!!!
I was thinking about stuffed food for days after I saw her post. I got to thinking about all the food inside of food that I love. Stuffed burgers would be a great example. I like them with a big mound of cheese stuffed inside a big, juicy burger! What about calzones, corn dogs, and jalapeño poppers! Yes, I heart stuffed food!
I like stuffed desserts too. Is there anything better than biting into a cupcake only to find a buttercream present tucked deep within? Does any one else take a bite of each chocolate in a box to find out what yummy goodness is hidden inside? And what about donuts??? Stuffed fried dough is about the best thing since, well plain fried dough I guess!
I stuffed cake balls. Seemed fitting. In truth, I decided to combine my love for cake balls with my love for cookie dough truffles because I’m a wee bit lazy. Dipping cake balls and then having to dip truffles is sort of a huge time suck. Plus, somehow, I always make an enormous mess. Enter the lightbulb. I got the idea that it would be more productive to roll twice, but only dip once! You know? It turned out to me a pretty good idea! Tasty AND practical!
With these cake balls, you get a bite of the moist chocolate covered cake, but then there’s the little nugget of sweet cookie dough just waiting to be discovered. I made these with both chocolate and vanilla cakes. I prefer the chocolate cake, I think it was a better contrast to the cookie dough filling. But don’t take my word, YOU should make some for yourselves!
And so continues my quest for stuffed food. I’m sort of on a roll (no pun intended!). Whatever will be next????
