Homemade Dark Chocolate Covered Sponge Cake Squares

Cast your vote for Chocolate Covered Sponge Cake Squares

Over the weekend I gorged myself on Chocolate covered Malt balls, and I figured I could make some at home. When I tried I didn’t get a crunchy cookie-like thing, but a spongy cake-like thing. I thought that if would be a waste not to cover it chocolate anyway, so I did and that tasted great. So the following is a fun recipe for bite-sized chocolate covered sponge cake. It easy, simple and a tasty little treat. NOTE: I’ve added some example pictures of the sponge squares and the double boiler at the bottom.

Ingredients:

2 egg whites

¼ cup white sugar

1 teaspoon cold coffee

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons flour

I cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Whisk together the egg whites, sugar, vanilla and coffee until frothy.

2. Add flour and mix together until combined.

3. Pour batter into a small 6x6 baking dish (pre-sprayed with butter flavor spray).

4. Bake in a 350 degree F for 25 minutes.

5. Let cool for 10 minutes.

6. Cut into 1 inch piece and frigate for 2-4 hours

7. Afterwards, in a double boiler melt the chocolate chips until fully melted (NOTE: whisk the chocolate chips continually for about 4 minutes to completely melt)

8. Using a toothpick, small tongs, or even two forks, dip each sponge cake piece into the melted chocolate, completely covering it.

9. Place each piece on a wax paper-lined tray and allow to cool completely (allowing the melted chocolate to harden).

10. Refrigerate in an air tight container until ready to serve.

A makeshift double boiler: A small amount of water in the bottom of a pot with a larger glass bowl on top. The steam from the water with heat and melt the chocolate. make sure the water DOES NOT touch the glass bowl.

      This sounds not only delicious, but not ridiculously complicated to make. I really want to try these now. I'm no professional, but I am a pretty decent baker and this is something I'll have to test!

      Harliquinn, once you get the hang of the double boiler stuff, it's easy and actually quite fun. I also have a recipe for chocolate covered graham crackers. Give them both a try, and see how you like them. Thank you for reading!
