Technically, it’s not cake…it’s even better than cake – it’s cake batter!! And I swear – this is my new absolute hands-down favorite dessert. These little cake batter truffles are easy to make – and the best part is, no need to heat up the oven on a hot day.
Back story: Malik’s birthday is this weekend and unfortunately our oven has been out of commission for about a month now. I THOUGHT our oven would be fixed by now, but it’s not. So I needed a back-up plan for his birthday treats and fast! When I found this recipe by Six Sisters’ Stuff on Pinterest, I knew I had found the perfect fix!
PS – I doubled this recipe, as Malik informed me that his coworkers would definitely need more than the 24-30 balls that 1 recipe makes! Plan accordingly 🙂
TRUFFLE (aka the yummy goodness)1 1/2 c flour 1 c yellow cake mix 1/2 c butter, softened 1/2 c sugar 1 t vanilla 1/8 t salt 3-4 T milk 2 T sprinkles
TRUFFLE COATING16 oz almond bark (white candy melts – We used vanilla CandiQuik) 4 T yellow cake mix sprinkles
Beat together butter and sugar using an electric mixer until combined. Add cake mix, flour, salt, and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Add 3 Tablespoons of milk or more if needed to make a dough consistency. Mix in sprinkles by hand. Roll dough into one inch balls and place on wax paper or aluminum foil-lined cookie sheet. Chill balls in the refrigerator or freezer for about 15 minutes to firm up.
