Hope Vaillancourt Recipe

By Hope Vaillancourt MissHopie87

Cake truffles are by far one of the most delicious confections ever dreamed up! These I have not tried yet but have made red velvet cake truffles which I made and handed out around Christmas. You can find my red velvet cake truffle recipe listed under my recipes. These cake batter truffles do not require any baking and would make an awesome birthday surprise for a loved one!

Prep Time:

Ingredients

1/2 c
unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c
granulated sugar
1 1/2 c
flour
1 c
yellow cake mix
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1/8 tsp
salt
3 - 4 Tbsp
milk
2 Tbsp
sprinkles
TRUFFLE COATING
16 oz
(8 squares) vanilla almond bark (or white candy melts)
4 Tbsp
yellow cake mix
sprinkles

Directions Step-By-Step

1
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.
2
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.
3
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.
4
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.
