Cake Batter Truffles

WOW!! These Cake Batter Truffles are fantastic! The addition of cake mix to the coating is pure genius! Sometimes I am amazed at the things people come up with.

I took a plate of Cake Batter Truffles to a get together and everyone that tried them LOVED them. People were raving about them! I even had one lady tell me she thought she would end up with a tummy ache from eating so many. Delicious!


1 ½ cups flour
1 cup yellow cake mix
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
½ cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
2-4 Tablespoons milk
2 Tablespoons sprinkles

Truffle Coating:
16 ounces (8 squares) white almond bark (or white candy melts)
1/4 cup yellow cake mix
sprinkles

Beat together butter and sugar using an electric mixer until combined. Add cake mix, flour, salt, and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until you get a nice workable dough consistency (I only needed 2). Mix in sprinkles. Roll dough into one inch balls and place on a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet. Chill balls in the refrigerator for at least 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.

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