Cakery Friday: Cake Batter Truffles

So I might be baking {no pun intended} in the sun in Hawaii, but who says I can’t share a new and seriously delicious recipe with you? These cake batter truffle are insane. If you can’t resist sticking your fingers into the batter pre-baked cake these babies are perfect for you. Not only do they taste like a tiny spoonful of batter but they are also egg free! Oh, and I forgot to mention… they require zero baking.

Gather all of the ingredients.

In the bowl of your electric mixer beat together 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1 cup of yellow cake mix, 1/2 cup of unsalted, room temperature butter and 1/2 cup of white sugar until mixture comes together. Add in 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1/8 teaspoon of salt and 3-4 tablespoons of milk. Use the milk to control the consistency. Start with 2 tablespoons and work your way up {I used the full 4 in my batter}. Finally mix in 2 tablespoons of sprinkles. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls. Place on a cookie sheet and allow the batter to chill for 15 minutes in the fridge or freezer.

Using either this handy-dandy machine or simply placing the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, melt 16 ounces of white chocolate candy melts until smooth. {If using the microwave option, be sure to melt in 30-second increments and stir after each increment}.

Dip cake batter balls into the melted candy melts to coat completely. This does get a little messy, but messy is part of the fun!! Remove with a fork and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Decorate immediately with sprinkles. Finally, hide these from your friends, significant others, children, etc etc. because they will be gone before you know it!

Happy “Baking”!!!!

    I’m making these for a baby shower (and using pink candy melts since its for a girl). They look awesome! Do they need to be stored in the fridge? Thanks so much for the great recipe!
