    Ever since you posted the recipe, I have made the Christmas Funfetti Cake Batter Truffles every Christmas. Then, because they were so popular, they got adapted for office birthday parties, family gatherings at Easter, dyed green for St Patrick’s day, etc. So, thanks for making ALL my get togethers more special! I love all the other goodies too!
