 Christmas Truffles are not only adorable, but they are also so good! With sprinkles inside and out this treat can’t get any more festive!

These Christmas Truffles are the cutest and tastiest little no-bake treats! Not only are they an absolute cinch to make, but they can also be made in 20-30 minutes without having to turn on the oven! Oh, and did I mention they taste just like CAKE BATTER? Yeah, it’s seriously tasty stuff. Plus super festive. Love those red and green sprinkles!!

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

Christmas Truffle Variations

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

Chocolate Mint Truffles. Simply swap out the white cake mix for chocolate and the vanilla for peppermint extract.

Candy Cane Truffles. Instead of sprinkles try crushing some candy canes!Christmas Truffles

    Not sure if it was intentional but there’s a typo.. But perhaps While?

    White those are in the fridge, melt down some chocolate–

    Hello Lauren! I found your website through pinterest. I want to try your recipe, but I’m not a big fan of mixes, how do you recommend to replace the cake mix of your recipe?
    Thank you! Pamela

    1. Lauren

      Hi Pamela! I’ve never made this recipe with nothing but a cake mix, so I’m not sure what a good substitute would be. Maybe google homemade cake mixes?!

  3. Brianna

    Hi love the recipe and want to try it out for Christmas goodies. Any idea how long these will keep in fridge or can I freeze them? TIA Happy Holidays!

  4. Jean

    Wow what give away you had! But thank you for the recipe. I think I may try this with my granddaughter for the upcoming holidays. Just change the colors and it works for any season.

  5. Valerie crabb

    Well that’s a bit mean,logged on as soon as I got email still going to try the no bake fufetti,but don’t say there’s oxo stuff to win if there’s not,shame on you.

  6. Rhonda

    Seriously this is the worst sight. You give no measurements whatsoever. Are we just supposed to use our imagination on the quantities?

    1. Lauren

      So sorry you’re having trouble! You must have scrolled right past it to leave this unkind comment. The recipe is in a blue box after all the step by step photos and right before the comments.

    2. Cheryl

      Many modern bloggers show some of the steps with pics, then there’s always a section with the whole recipe. I like this format, because I can get an idea of how involved the recipe will be before starting it. Thanks for a fun recipe!

  7. Jo Hardy

    I’ve never heard of OXO products. I must look for these. We live in our motorhome and these storage containers would be awesome while we travel. And no bake recipes? Now you’re talking!

  8. Franzi

    I’d love tk make these.But i am from Germany, so i never know what to buy when it says “yellow/white cake mix”.
    Maybe you can help me?

    Thanks in advance

    Ok. I am NOT an online commenter but I HAD to leave a review of these truffles. They are essentially cookie dough truffles and are amazing. This will definitely be a staple in my Christmas baking arsenal. Everyone loves them. I also ran out of white chocolate and used semi-sweet, but I think I liked the white chocolate better.

    I made these today for the first time and they are amazing! So easy to make too! I used the Ghiradelli white chocolate baking melts to dip them in. Delish!

    What to use or do when buttermilk is not available at your area, but is needed for a recipe? Is there any other substitute? Also, will pancake buttermilk flour work just as fine as a substitute? Please help! Thanks.

    1. Lauren

      If you don’t have liquid buttermilk, use milk + a small splash of white distilled vinegar. You can buy straight up buttermilk powder and mix it with water as well. I’m not sure what you mean by pancake buttermilk flour….is that buttermilk pancake mix?

  12. ibtisam

    hi lauren! im inlove with what you do, mom of almost 3 and such a great cook and baker…. my inspiration:-)
    is there any thing I can substitute for the white cake mix? like maybe make my own?

  13. Erin

    If you’re using almond bark, about how much would equal 1.5 cups? They come in those cubes so I’m not sure where to start measuring.

  14. Allie

    These would be great to take to Christmas parties! Would you suggest storing these in the fridge? How long would you say these last?

  15. Angela

    I was super excited to try these! They looked so adorable and I was convinced these would win my work bake off contest and sadly I was very disappointed. Next time I try these I will definitely be altering the recipe. They were just too sweet!

    In retrospect half a cup of sugar in that mix is a lot. I made these at my parents house and my dad and I split one truffle and just half of one was way too sweet. Unfortunately even my sugar loving friends and their kids couldn’t even handle all the sweetness. I had to throw a good 3/4 of the batch out 🙁

    I would use maybe 1/8 of a cup of sugar in the mix and drizzle white chocolate or even red, greed and white candy melts over the truffles. I’ll give it a shot and leave a less sweet alternative in the comment when I find a good mix.

  16. Pamela

    All your recipes look delicious!! It’s late at night and I will be up early and going to the store so I can make at least one of the recipes of yours! I’m gaining weight just looking at the recipes. Thanks for sharing!
