I am so excited for this tutorial today! I am making a recipe from a new book that is coming out called Cake Balls by Dede Wilson. The recipe is called Toffee-Brown Butter-Pecan. It has a great butter flavor that is incorporated throughout the whole recipe and also compliments the pecans. This is a very rich flavor! I also show you how to dip the cake balls into the white chocolate and then to decorate them beautifully :)
(If you just want a tutorial on how to make cake balls instead of watching the recipe start the video at 5:44)
One of the things that I love about this book is that all of the recipes are so unique! They include everything from apple pie and chocolate cookie dough to creme brulee and vegan chocolate! It really has something for everyone. I can't wait to try some more of these recipes!
Here are the exact measurements:
-4 tablespoons unsalted butter
-1/2 cup sugar
-Pinch of salt
-3/4 cup toasted pecan halves
-6 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temperature)
-3 cups confectioners' sugar
-2 tablespoons whole milk
-1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Let me know if you try this recipe and what you think! Good luck!!
