cake truffles

a friend of mine was telling me about these 'no bake' cake truffles & i came across this recipe,looks like something to try for lillian's class christmas party & of course i can just holiday-ize them with some red green :)

Recipe from: The Girl Who Ate Everything
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
½ cup white sugar
1 ½ cups flour
1 cup yellow cake mix
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
3-4 Tablespoons milk
2 Tablespoons sprinkles
Truffle Coating:
16 ounces (8 squares) almond bark (or white candy melts)
4 Tablespoons yellow cake mix

Beat together butter and sugar using an electric mixer until combined. Blend in vanilla. Add cake mix, flour, salt, and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Add 3 Tablespoons of milk or more if needed to make a dough consistency. Mix in sprinkles by hand. Roll dough into one inch balls and place on a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet. Chill balls in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to firm up.

While dough balls are chilling, melt almond bark in the microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. Stir between intervals. Once melted, quickly stir in cake mix until incorporated completely. Using a fork, dip truffles into almond bark and shake of excess bark by tapping the bottom of the fork on the side of your bowl. Place truffle back on the cookie sheet and top with sprinkles. Repeat with remaining balls until finished. {Note: for smoother looking truffles, don't add cake mix to melted chocolate, just leave it by itself}

Chill cake batter truffles in the refrigerator until serving. Makes around 24-30 truffles.

  1. If you are going to make cake pops, you really need to check out this site...

    ps. The easiest way to make them is to make a box cake mix. Cool it and then cut it up to crumbs/small pieces. Then Add just enough icing for the crumbs to hold together - think playdough like consistency. Roll into balls and Put in refridge to harden. then just dip in choc melts and decorate. :)
