Recipe: Raspberry Chocolate Cake Truffles

I know this website is about healthy eating, but let’s face it, who never has dessert? No 0ne. I don’t believe in “diets” or deprivation. But I do believe that some foods are more nutritious that others. Well, this post is not about one of those nutritious foods.

It’s a recipe for junk food that is worth every bite!

Inspired by Rene from Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice blog, I went all out with chocolate and added raspberries to the original recipe. Check out her recipes and the pictures. They are aaaa-mazing!

Next time you’re into something sweet, or faced with limitless options at parties or an buffet, be selective. Choose something that you absolutely love, be mindful of the portion, and savor every bite.

Now to the recipe.

You need to start a day ahead, so read the whole recipe before you’re ready to get your hands dirty. And, they will.


  • 1 box cake mix, baked and cooled (I used Betty Crocker Super Moist Triple Chocolate Fudge)
  • 6 oz (1 small container) raspberries
  • 1/2 tsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tub chocolate frosting (I used Betty Crocker Classic Chocolate)
  • Semi sweet Chocolate bars, 1 to 2 containers

After the cake is cooled, crumble it in a large bowl.

Sprinkle the sugar over the raspberries and microwave for 1 minute. Cool for few minutes.

Add the raspberries and the chocolate icing to the crumbled cake. Mix until it’s well coated. Using your hand, roll the cake mix into balls, about the size of a quarter of an inch. Place on a flat tray or cookie sheet. Continue with the rest of the mix then refrigerate, at least for 2 hours.

Melt the chocolate bars, in small amounts in the microwave or a double boiler. Roll each ball in the melted chocolate until coated from all direction. Place on another flat tray covered with a sheet of wax paper. At this point, you can decorate with sprinkles, coconut flakes, crushed nuts, or anything that comes to your mind.

Cool in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.

Nour’s guidance and expertise was the key to dramatically halting our son’s [Crohn’s] disease progression! His pediatric gastroenterologist is now in agreement of our choice to treat solely with diet and supplements. All his labs have improved and his inflammatory markers are so low they are practically nonexistent.

Before working with Nour, I experienced intestinal pain off and on for for 54 years with minimal success on medications. I have benefited 100% from Nour’s program as I am now pain free!

A lot of time and money was wasted on foods that I thought would help my digestive struggles [diarrhea, bloating, hunger], but in fact I was making it worse. The main benefit is getting a handle on what negatively affects my digestive symptom. Doing a total 180 to my eating habits has been pretty amazing.
