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!).

Mixing cake batter truffles

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.

Tie Dyed Cupcakes

Standard

Tie Dyed Cupcakes

You can use regular white cake mix from a box or you can make the batter from scratch. The tricky partĀ happens once you’re ready to color the batter. Simply get your food coloring ready and separate the batter into as many different bowls as you have colors. For mine I did red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.

I even used brightly colored cupcake liners…there’s nothing wrong with bursts of color šŸ™‚

Ā To create the tie dye effect, scoop a small amount of each color into your cupcake liners. It doesn’t matter if the colors mush into each other, that’s actually better!

After they’re done baking you will see all the bright colors in the baked cupcakes.

Now all you have to do is let them cool and you can frost them. For these I had neon blue food coloring that I mixed into white frosting. It created such a bright blue color and I loved it! ThenĀ I dipped the tops into my bowl of sprinkles, allowing the sprinkles toĀ stick to the top and letting the blue frosting frame the sprinkles.

Lucky Charms Cupcakes

Standard

These cupcakes are so simple to make…all you need are the cupcakes andĀ a few simpleĀ decorations. You can use a box mix or make them from scratch. For these I used vanilla frosting, green sugar sprinkles, and Lucky Charms marshmallows. You can even get fancy and bake some of the cereal into your cupcakes too! I made these cute cupcakes for my students as a treat for St. Patrick’s Day earlier this year. They loved them!
