Hello Fall Cake Batter Truffles!

Well, I think I have given up on summer and I am ready to welcome fall with open arms! For us, fall is filled with so many wonderful things like apple picking, sweater weather, hot chocolate, and most exciting of all, lots of baking. I have shown you how to make Red Velvet Truffles now I am going on a variation of that with Hello Fall Cake Batter Truffles.

My kids are not huge chocolate cake fans so I wanted to come up with something with a different flavor but still stay with the truffle theme. In comes these lovely little nuggets! They are made with a boxed funfetti cake mix which gives them a dense and delicious flavor profile. Here’s how I made them:

The Cast of Characters

I make these truffles using my stand mixer, but you can totally mix them by hand.

Add softened butter to the mixer.

To the butter, add flour, sugar, and vanilla.

Mix on medium-high speed until combined then scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Add the cake mix and mix on low until it is incorporated, unless you want to be showered in cake mix, then switch to medium-high speed. It will resemble coarse crumbs when you first start mixing.

Keep mixing for another minute or so until a dough ball forms. I know it doesn’t look promising but it will happen, just have faith!

Now add your sprinkles and mix on medium speed until just combined. It looks like a magical unicorn in there. Now it’s a party!

Using a tablespoon measurement, scoop out balls of dough.

Roll each ball in your hand until smooth and round.

Place the truffles in a dish and stick them in the fridge for about 10 minutes to set up a bit. Look at those little babies! Yummy.

While the truffles are chilling, prepare the luscious chocolate for dipping. Place the white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and melt according to the package directions.

*TIP: you really want to use candy melts for this instead of regular old chocolate chips. The truffles will not set up the right way without the candy melts. You can pick them up at your local craft store.*

I just want to dive right in! Could you imagine a pool filled with chocolate? I would so be there.

Remove the truffles from the fridge and dip them in the white chocolate one at a time.

Swish them around in the chocolate with a fork. I know there has to be a more technical term for this, but that’s what we are going with here. Scoop them out with the fork and tap the fork on the side of the bowl to remove the excess chocolate.

Place each truffle on a piece of parchment paper and continue until all of the truffles are coated in chocolate loveliness.

Now it’s time to decorate. I have admitted before that I am not a fancy baker. I just don’t have the time or the patience for it. I promise you these decorations are so quick and easy, but they look all fancy.

Melt the orange chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl according to the package directions. You can tailor the theme of these to any occasion by picking any color chocolate you want here. I picked orange because it makes me think of fall colors.

Scoop the chocolate into a sandwich sized zip top bag and seal. Be careful, the chocolate is hot!

Using scissors, cut off a very small corner of the bag. Drizzle the orange chocolate over the truffles. I would recommend being quick and intentional with this step, the truffles will look better. If you do this step too slow, the drizzle doesn’t come out right.

I know they look messy right now but I promise they will come out great.

Sprinkle with some sprinkles for added cheer.

Allow the truffles to set up for about 10 minutes. When you pick up each truffle there might be some chocolate that pooled on the bottom, just gently break it off. Place them on a plate and stick them in the fridge for 10 more minutes to completely harden.

Don’t they look fancy and professional?! Store the truffles in the fridge but try to serve them at room temperature.
