Nutrition: per serving



  • 200 g Sponge Cake Ready-made or homemade
  • 150 g Dark Chocolate
  • 50 g Milk Chocolate
  • 50 g Icing Sugar
  • Sprinkles or Crushed Nuts For decoration, optional


  • Begin by crushing the sponge cake into fine crumbs inside a mixing bowl.
  • Combine the cake crumbs with icing sugar and mix until they are thoroughly blended.
  • Form the mixture into small, bite-sized balls and arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • In a heatproof container, break the dark and milk chocolate into small pieces.
  • Melt the chocolate by gently placing it over a simmering water bath (using a double boiler), stirring until the chocolate becomes smooth and completely liquefied.
  • Dip each cake ball into the melted chocolate, ensuring it is fully coated, using either a fork or skewer. Allow any excess chocolate to drip back into the container.
  • Place the chocolate-coated cake balls back on the parchment paper.
  • Optionally, sprinkle your choice of decorations, such as sprinkles or crushed nuts, onto the cake balls while the chocolate is still wet.
  • Let the chocolate-covered cake balls cool and solidify for a few minutes.
  • Firm up the cake balls by refrigerating them for about an hour.
  • Once the chocolate has fully set, your delectable chocolate-covered cake balls are ready to be savoured.
