No-Bake Cake Batter Truffles

Cake Batter TrufflesI can’t tell you how many times I am tempted to leave out the eggs in a cookie recipe and just eat the dough.  No, I mean it; I can’t tell you because it would be impossible to count…it happens every time I make cookies.  These little cake batter truffles are perfect to satisfy that dough/batter craving! Cake Batter Truffles

Depending on what size you make them, you can get anywhere from 30-40 truffles.  I’ve used this recipe four or five times now; it’s perfect!  I used them to make Cupcake-shaped cake pops!Cake Batter Truffles

No-Bake Cake Batter Truffles (from Chef-in-Training)

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup yellow cake mix, dry
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3-4 Tbsp milk
  • 2 Tbsp sprinkles
  • 16 oz white candy melts or vanilla chips
  1. Beat butter and sugar until combined.
  2. Add flour, cake mix, vanilla, and salt and beat until combined throughout.
  3. Add milk by the tablespoon until you reach a dough consistency (I usually end up using just 3 tbsp).  The dough will be sort of crumbly, but you should still be able to form balls out of it.
  4. Mix in sprinkles and form balls out of the dough.
  5. Chill balls in the freezer for 15 minutes or so.
  6. Melt candy melts according to package directions and using two forks, dip the balls in the melts.  Let harden before moving.Cake Batter Truffles

  6. I made these today for a family Christmas gathering. There were inhaled within minutes! Next time I will have to triple the recipe! I’m in Australia and it was HOT so has to keep them on ice for as long as possible. Thanks for the recipe!
