Cake Batter Truffles

 


I've made Red Velvet Cake truffles, Oreo truffles, and Peppermint Brownie truffles.  But these truffles deserve a standing ovation.  They are absolutely incredible.  Seriously, they taste like cake batter cookie dough, and who doesn't like cookie dough!  I found this recipe at Chef In Training.

I made a batch of these truffles for our Christmas Eve party.  We always have family over to hang out, eat dinner, sing Christmas songs with the kiddos, make cookies for Santa and food for his reindeer.  It was a fun night that lasted long into the am, so I bet the sugar helped us stay focused while putting together tons of toys for our girls after they went to bed.

Truffle Ingredients:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup yellow cake mix
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
dash salt
4 T milk
2 T sprinkles

Truffle Coating:

16 oz. Vanilla flavored white almond bark, or white candy melts
Sprinkles for decoration

In a large stand mixer, beat together the softened butter and sugar.  Add the flour, cake mix, vanilla, salt, and milk and mix just until combined.  Add the sprinkles and gently stir.  Put bowl in refrigerator to chill dough for 15 minutes.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet.  Place in freezer for 30 minutes. 

Melt almond bark or candy melts in the microwave.  Use a spoon to dip truffles into melted chocolate and place back on parchment lined cookie sheet.  Immediately top with sprinkles.  Store truffles in refrigerator in airtight container until ready to serve.  Enjoy!
