Wow is it just me or has this week flown by! I feel like I haven't had time to do anything! But of course I found time to bake. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook (which you should of course!) You saw a picture I posted of Angel Food Bites with Chocolate Ganache and Toasted Coconut. Yum!
This recipe is super simple, but if I were to make it again (which I will) I would use regular size muffins instead of mini muffins. I feel like there wasn't enough angel food cake.
Angel Food Bites with Chocolate Ganache and Toasted Coconut
1 box of Betty Crocker Angel Food Cake mix
1 bag of milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup of heavy cream (I used vanilla half and half)
Make cake mix according to directions on the box. So basically add the water (I think its one cup)
Put one spoonful into mini muffin papers
(I ended up having the use a TON of Pam on the papers in order to get them not to stick)
Bake for 12-15 minutes - Until the tops are light brown
1 bag milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy cream (I used vanilla half and half)
At first I was intimidated by making this. I always assumed it was super hard cause it seems so fancy. But it was SO EASY!
Melt 1/2 bag of chocolate chips into a pan with heavy cream (I used half and half). I really didn't measure this out, just added more half and half to make it thinner and more chocolate chips to make it thicker. As soon as it was thick enough to my liking I just dipped the tops of the mini muffins in it and voila!
For the toasted coconut, just heat oven to 350. Spread coconut onto a pan and put into oven for about 5 minutes. Stir around. Toast longer if you want it a little browner.
I tried to dip the bites into the coconut also, but it didn't really stick so I just sprinkled it on to.
This got rave reviews at work, we even gave some to clients since I had made so many. It was delicious and super easy!
P.S. How do you like the new design?! My wonderful friend Emily made the background, header and buttons for me! I love it!
