Day 10: Cake Batter Truffles

Last year, I made Cookie Dough Truffles during my 25 Days of Christmas Cookies challenge, and they were very well-received by all who ate them. How can you go wrong with chocolate chip cookie dough that has absolutely no possibility of making you sick, enclosed in a layer of chocolate?

I thought I'd go with the same idea and try out these Cake Batter Truffles. What is it about cake batter and cookie dough that get people (and by people, I mean myself) so excited? Sometimes I'd almost rather eat the batter or dough than the finished product. 

And clearly I'm not the only one, with the abundance of cake batter ice cream, cake batter rice krispy treats, cake batter blondies, and even cake batter pancakes (?!) out there in the world.

These truffles are just a little taste of cake batter enclosed in a chocolate (or vanilla) coating. The perfect little sweet treat, all wrapped up in its own little shell.

I added my own sprinkles so they would be more Christmasy, but you could certainly just use a Funfetti cake mix.

Such a cute twist on a favorite!

Cake Batter Truffles

  • 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup yellow cake mix
  • 3-4 tablespoons sprinkles, of your choice
  • candy coating, chocolate or vanilla


Combine sweetened condensed milk and butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Heat until mixture can hold a line when a spatula is drawn through the center, stirring constantly. This will take about 15-20 minutes. Stir in cake mix. Let cool 20 minutes.

Stir in sprinkles. Lightly butter hands (or spray with cooking spray) and roll into 3/4-inch balls. Place on parchment-lined or wax paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate truffles about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt your candy coating ready according to package directions. Remove truffles from refrigerator and dip into candy coating, and place back onto baking sheet. If you want to top with sprinkles, do so while the candy coating is still wet. Set dipped truffles aside to set.
