Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1 standard cake mix (homemade or pre-packaged)
16 oz of the frosting/filling of your choice
4 oz Chocolate (dark, semi-sweet, or white) to coat the truffles
4 oz add-ins (optional) such as mini-chocolate chips, walnuts, dried fruit, etc

Bake the cake in a 9x13 pan as directed by the recipe/package selected.

Tear the cake into small pieces while still warm (do not let the cake cool completely).

Add the cake and frosting to a bowl and combine. Do not over mix - the cake/icing mixture should not be homogeneous.

Use a spoon and form the mixture into balls.

Let cool completely.

Melt the chocolate over a double-boiler and use two forks to roll the truffles into the melted chocolate.

Place the truffles on a cookie rack to rest so that they don't "grow feet."

Serve when the chocolate coating had cooled and hardened completely.

To make a variety of flavors, split the cake among different bowls and add different icings/fillings.

Cake truffles are one of my favorite sweets - they're small, easily portable (to Super Bowl parties), and did I mention small? We brought a batch decorated in Indy blue and white to a Super Bowl party this past weekend. They were a huge hit!
