Christmas Truffle Recipe

By using just a few common ingredients you can have a tasty and festive treat in no time! Perfect for Chrismas platters or to keep to yourself. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • White Cake Mix – this is where the cake batter taste comes from.
  • All-Purpose Flour – helps fill and stabilize the truffle.
  • Granulated Sugar – added sweetness.
  • Butter – melted. This adds flavor and helps hold everything together.
  • Vanilla – for flavor.
  • Milk – for creaminess and helps hold everything together.
  • Christmas Sprinkles – these are typically green, white and red. But this recipe can really be made any time of the year, so use whatever sprinkles suit your fancy.
  • White Chocolate – I used white, but you could use any kind OR even candy melts or almond bark. I say use what you like and/or have.

Ingredients

Raw Flour Warning

Now I have had my fair share of raw dough, whether that be cookie dough, brownie batter, cake batter, etc. There are obvious concerns about consuming raw eggs but there is also a risk with raw flour. I didn’t bake my flour or cake mix (which contains raw flour in it) before making this treat.

BUT if you are worried about it simply toast your flour/cake mix in a 350-degree oven for 5 minutes on a cookie sheet. This might give it a slightly nutty flavor but you won’t have to worry about unwanted bacteria.

How to Make Christmas Truffles

  1. In a large bowl, whisk cake mix, flour, and sugar. Stir in melted butter, vanilla, milk, and sprinkles. The mixture should be moist and be able to hold its shape easily when formed.
  2. Using a cookie scoop, form mixture into even balls and refrigerate 20-30 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, melt chocolate in a double boiler or slowly in the microwave. Using a fork, drop one of the cake batter truffles into the chocolate and roll around to coat. Gently tap off the excess chocolate and transfer to a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
  4. Top with more sprinkles, if desired.

Because these truffles were chilled, the chocolate should harden up pretty quickly. Store these in the fridge (because there’s milk in them) until you’re ready to serve. Feel free to bring these to room temperature…or eat them right out of the fridge and let them melt away!

These will last 1 1/2 weeks stored in the fridge in an airtight container.

Make-Ahead

It’s a Christmas Miracle! These Christmas Truffles can also be made ahead of time and stored in the freezer for up to three months.

Simply follow the step-by-step directions and refrigerate to solidify the chocolate coating. Then transfer to an airtight container and freeze. When ready to eat, transfer them back to the fridge to thaw.Melted White Chocolate

This truffle recipe is very versatile, so here are some other festive ideas to try out.

    The chemistry nerd in me really wants beakers like that! I think that’s why I like baking. Everything is so precise, you’re eyeing up the meniscus, measuring by weight…It relaxes me for some reason. I loved chemistry in high school and college! And physics, but let’s not go there. I realize that’s another level of nerd.

    This package is amazing! The beakers are so awesome. I have a bunch of OXO products on my wedding registry but don’t want to wait that long to get them 🙂

    I love oxo products. Even my favorite dog comb is oxo. I am going to have to try the cake batter truffles for something different than cake pops.

  7. Amanda

    I just made this recipe and they are not good. I would definently not put sugar in them if I ever made them again. The granulated sugar texture is like eating sand. Not a big fan.
