I was bored so I did what I do when I'm bored - cook. I made the beautiful king cake from scratch! Ok not really, I made it from a box mix called Mam Papaul's. Most of the store bought king cakes taste like big cinnamon rolls or donuts. These do not. They have more of a bread quality with some cinnamon and a little glaze and sugar on top. These are super easy to make and you can order the box mix on line. It's not expensive at all. The truffles are a little more time consuming because you have to roll out each one. I always add a little chocolate liquor to the melted chocolate/cream mixture. Godiva is my favorite. The little decorative swirls were made from melted pink chocolate chips. These were so good. I always get requests from people to make them. I should make them more often.
