I wrote last week about my quest to make cake batter recipes I’d seen on pinterest – mostly the rice krispie treats spoke to me, but I also saw a few for cake batter truffles. None of the recipes seemed quite right, so I experimented until I came up with this one.
Let’s just say, it’s a bit of a miracle I got pictures before these all disappeared.
Cake Batter Truffles
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
8 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup sprinkles
White chocolate (I used 2 bars, but you could also use a few cups of white chocolate chips)
Sprinkles for decoration
1) Beat together butter and sugar in a stand mixer until fluffy. Add cake mix and flour, mixing well. Add vanilla and milk, and mix until the dough comes together.
2) Add sprinkles, and mix well.
3) Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Place on a plate or cookie sheet lined with wax paper, and chill for 30 minutes in the fridge.
4) Melt the white chocolate in the microwave, being careful not to overheat. Once melted, dip the cake batter balls in the chocolate and coat completely. Add sprinkles on top, then chill in the fridge until the chocolate sets.
Tip: If you use the same bowl of chocolate for all the truffles, it will get pieces of cake in it and be less smooth. I’d recommended doing 6-8 truffles at a time, then getting new chocolate.
