Chocolate-Cherry Cake Truffles

LaDonna Skeels


I bake a lot for my family and friends,especially during the holidays. So,at Christmas I decided to make some pretty ones dipped in white chocolate with red sprinkles, everyone just loved them. Now I make them quite often and they never last long. You can dip them in nuts, coconut, crushed up cake crumbs, etc. The possibilities are endless!!

How to Make Chocolate-Cherry Cake Truffles


  • 1Bake cake as directed, after it comes out oven, break it up with a fork, and add your frosting while warm. I use a small cookie scoop and make several balls and place them on wax paper. You can use any flavor cake mix and frosting you like.
  • 2Melt your chocolate in microwave or a double broiler, and dip each one then put back on wax paper to dry. Immediately put sprinkles or nuts, etc. on top while still wet. I use both white chocolate and chocolate for dipping.
  • 3After they set about 10 minutes, you can place them in decorative boxes or dishes, one cake usually makes about 4 dozen.
