Recipe: Cake Truffles

Cake truffles – and they’re gluten free. These sweet and chocolaty bite sized treats are quick and easy to whip up for the holidays. Plus, they taste far better than boxed cake mix and a jar of icing – even thought that’s exactly what they’re made of! Okay, let’s bake up.

Ingredients

  • box of gluten free cake mix
  • ingredients for the cake mix
  • jar of cream cheese icing
  • 1 cup of gluten free chocolate melts
  • 1/2 cup of red, white and green sprinkles

First, make the cake mix according to the box. Just as with the cake pops, I made it in a 9 inch dish to lessen the amount of edges, this makes for fluffier truffles.

Once the cake is done, take it out of the oven and let it cool for about 30 minutes. Then, crumble the cake to bits in a bowl and add in the cream cheese icing and mix well – like really well until it’s all combined. This is where the recipe differs from the cake pops – it uses about twice as much icing, giving it that gooey truffle like texture.

Up next, get out a large baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. Time to get your hands messy! Roll out the cake truffles into 1/2 inch balls and place them on the baking sheet. Try, as best you can, to make them all the same size – I ended up with about 60.

Once the cake truffles are all rolled out, place them in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

Okay, once the 30 minutes is close to being up, melt your chocolate either in the microwave or over a double boiler. Then, take the truffles out and cover them with chocolate – then add a few sprinkles for a festive touch.

When they’re all done, freeze again for about 20 minutes and then you’re ready to eat! They’re so good right out of the freezer, but good at room temperature, too.
