Cake Batter Truffles

Standard

Let me start off by saying that you won’t be able to make just one batch of these. They are so yummy and easy, and they are no bake! That means they’re perfect to make in the summer when it’s hot and you don’t want to turn on your oven šŸ˜‰

Cake Batter Truffles

1/2 cup unsalted butter – softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1.5 cups flour
1/8 tsp. salt
1 cup yellow cake mix (dry)
3 tbsp. milk (you can add more if you need to, in order to get the right consistency)
Colored sprinkles

Cake Batter Truffle Coating

16 oz. white dipping chocolate (I used melted white choc. chips but you could use almond bark too)
Colored sprinkles

Directions

In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugar until combined.
Add in the vanilla.
Add theĀ flour, salt, and cake mix.
Add in the milk and stir to combine.
Stir in sprinkles of your choice (you could add different colored sprinkles for each holiday!).

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper.

Roll dough into one inch balls, place on cookie sheet, and place in the fridge for 15 minutes or until firm.

While dough is chilling, melt the white chocolate inĀ 30 secondĀ intervals in the microwave, stirring in between each interval (this prevents the chocolate from burning…we don’t want to waste any of it!) šŸ˜›
Using a fork, slotted spoon, or whatever you find easiest to coat the truffles, dip each truffle into the melted chocolate, tapping the fork to shake off any excess chocolate.
Put each truffle back on the baking sheet, shake some sprinkles on top, and place the baking sheet back in the fridge for the chocolate to set.
Keep the truffles in the fridge until ready to serve.
