These truffles are super easy and no bake. The base is a cake mix but you can add any creation to the cake batter to make it unique. I separated the cake batter once it was all mixed and made a couple pumpkin cake batter truffles by adding pumpkin puree to the batter and mixing it and sprinkling cinnamon on top of the almond bark. I also made a few nutella cake batter truffles by adding nutella to the cake batter and mixing it. Other ingredients you could add to the cake batter are oreos, chocolate chips, mnms, peanut butter, marshmallow, raisins, and recess peanut butter cup.
- 1 1/2 cps. flour
- 1 cp. yellow cake mix (buy a box at the store)
- 1/2 cp. unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cp. white sugar
- 1/8 t salt
- 1 t vanilla
- 3-4 T milk
- Any other ingredients you choose to add to the cake batter center
- 16 oz. (8 squares) almond bark
- 4 T yellow cake mix
- Sprinkles or chocolate chips to decorate the top with
- Beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixer until combined. Add flour, cake mix, salt, and vanilla. Mix until combined. Add in 3 T milk and mix in more if needed to get a dough consistency.
- Mix in by hand any additional ingredients you choose to add. (sprinkles, chocolate chips, oreos)
- Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on a wax paper or parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
- Chill balls in the refrigerator for 15 min. or in the freezer for 30 minutes. (The colder the better.)
- Melt almond bark in a glass bowl with 4 T cake mix (see tip below) in the microwave in 30 second intervals stirring in between until melted.
- Dip the truffles one at a time into the almond bark with a fork tapping the edge of the bowl to shake off the extra coating. Place the truffle back on the lined cookie sheet and top with sprinkles or chocolate chips. Repeat until all the truffles are coated.
Tips: It works well to melt a little bit of almond bark for dipping at a time otherwise it hardens fast and does not keep smooth when re-heating. Also, make sure to sprinkle your topping on the truffles while the almond bark is still wet so it sticks.
