Triple Chocolate Snack Cakes

The holidays are my favorite time of the year. Even though I work too hard, plan too little and try accomplish too much, it’s still my favorite.

I get a big kick out of baking goodies to share with family, friends and my neighbors. I always make a batch of my Grandma’s Vanilla Bean Sugar Cookies and my Chocolate Chip Biscotti is always a hit.

How to Make Triple Chocolate Snack Cakes

I started out with a Pillsbury Moist Supreme Chocolate Premium Cake Mix and baked it up in a sheet pan according to the package directions.

I let it cool and then used my cookie cutter to cut little snack cakes. It was super easy and the mini cakes make individual servings and I love that!Chocolate Ganache for Triple Chocolate Mini Snack Cakes | MissintheKitchen.comI heated some heavy cream and poured over a package of semi-sweet chocolate chips and stirred it together for the chocolate ganache. Ganache also makes the best hot cocoa on demand when you stir it into hot milk.  I often keep a jar of ganache in the refrigerator for the holidays.

I dipped the cakes into the ganache by placing them upside down and then flipping them over. I poured extra over the sides needed and didn’t worry about the bottoms getting coated. I placed them on a wire rack inside a sheet pan to catch any drips.

Next I added the delicious Dove Milk Chocolate Gifts to the top, I may have taste tested one or two but that’s just part of the job, right? Then added a few holiday sprinkles. I placed the pan in the refrigerator for 2 hours for the ganache to set up.

When I was picking up the Pillsbury Cake Mixes and Dove Chocolates at Target, I found these super cute Ziploc Holiday Medium Containers and just knew they would be perfect for my holiday goodie gifts.

I lined the Ziploc Containers with parchment paper and placed the snack cakes inside. Popped the lid on and placed them in the refrigerator until I was ready to deliver the goodies.

These Triple Chocolate Snack Cakes have endless decorating possibilities and are so simple and easy to make. I can be a bit challenged when it comes to decorating baked goods and so I got a little help adding the sprinkles from my son’s girlfriend, Abby. I so enjoy having her to hang out with in the kitchen!
