Cake Batter Truffles

I was looking for an easy, quick yummy dessert to whip up for my girlfriends Bridal Shower this past weekend and I came across this recipe for cake batter truffles.. who doesn't love cake batter?!

These didn't take long to make at all and everyone seemed to love them (I know my hubby and I did!).

Recipe adapted from this blog.

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup yellow cake mix
1/2 cup margarine or butter softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
3 - 4 tbsp milk
2 tbsp sprinkles

Truffle Coating: 
1 to 1 1/2 cups of white chocolate melting wafers

Beat together the butter and sugar using an electric or hand-mixer until combined. Add in cake mix, flour, salt and vanilla and mix together well. Add in 3 tbsp of milk gradually until mixture reaches a doughy consistency. Mix in sprinkles by hand (I literally used my hands for this).

Roll dough into 1 inch balls ans place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Chill in the fridge for about 15 - 20 mins until firm and ready for dipping.

Melt the white chocolate wafers using a glass bowl placed over a saucepan filled with water set on medium-high heat (make sure the bowl is a tight fit so the lip of it sits on the edge of the pan and is not actually submerged in the water). Using a fork dip the truffles into the melted chocolate one at a time. Once you're done dipping one row of truffles sprinkle them with sprinkles before the chocolate hardens.

Set in the fridge for about a half hour to harden and then enjoy!! Store uneaten truffles in the fridge.
