Easy Cake Truffles
  • 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
  1. Bake the cake in a 9x13 pan as directed by the recipe/package selected.
  2. Tear the cake into small pieces while still warm (do not let the cake cool completely).
  3. Add the cake and frosting to a bowl and combine. Do not over mix - the cake/icing mixture should not be homogeneous.
  4. Use a spoon and form the mixture into balls.
  5. Let cool completely.
  6. Melt the chocolate over a double-boiler and use two forks to roll the truffles into the melted chocolate.
  7. Place the truffles on a cookie rack to rest so that they don't "grow feet."
  8. Serve when the chocolate coating had cooled and hardened completely.
  9. 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!
