Doorstep Desserts is a subscription box that delivers pre-portioned and pre-baked ingredients. You are only responsible for assembling the ingredients and taking full credit for a delicious creation! The company ships boxes once a week, once every two weeks, or once a month. You always choose from two dessert options or can skip a shipment if you don’t like either option.
I found out about this subscription box through Groupon! I snagged a three month trial for only $20. Normally each box costs $15, but you can do a trial run for only $7.50. There are at least 4-5 servings from each dessert, so even the $15 regular price is decent. In addition, shipping is included!
Assembling The Ingredients
As I’m sure you can imagine, it is pretty thrilling when the box of dessert is delivered! Even though I knew what dessert I picked, it is still fun to open the box and find out exactly what’s inside. For my first box, I selected Vanilla Creme Cake Truffles. Inside I found two round vanilla cakes, a container of buttercream icing, and a container of “vanilla krunchies.”
Also included is a list of all ingredients and nutrition facts.
As you can see from the instructions, these were very easy to assemble. The first step is cup up the cake into small chunks then mix in the icing.
Then you simply form them into balls and roll them in the vanilla krunchies.
After waiting a tortuous hour for them to chill in the fridge, I was finally able to taste! Aside from the vanilla krunchies, these were delicious! I assume the krunchies were added for extra texture, but they were rock hard and didn’t have any flavor. Had I known, I’d have dipped the cake truffles in chocolate instead!
Overall, the cake truffles were easy to put together and tasted great. It’s certainly a novelty to receive all the ingredients to make a special dessert without any baking or clean up! I enjoyed it as an adult and I’m sure it would be a fun activity to do with kids as well.
