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


  1. Bake 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.
  2. Melt 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.
  3. After they set about 10 minutes, you can place them in decorative boxes or dishes, one cake usually makes about 4 dozen.
