Patriotic No-Bake Cake Batter Truffles

Well, I needed a version for a Memorial Day barbeque. What else can I say?

It was a super-easy substitution of cake flavor (strawberry) and a bit of red coloring. I tend to hoard different kinds of sprinkles and jimmies, so it gave me a chance to dig into my arsenal of goodies, too.

Patriotic No-Bake Cake Batter Truffles

Ingredients

  • For the Truffles:
  • 1-1/2 c. cake flour
  • 1 c. strawberry cake mix
  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 3-4 tbsp. milk
  • 1-2 tsp. red food coloring
  • 2 tbsp. sprinkles
  • For the Coating:
  • 16 oz. (8 squares) almond bark or vanilla flavored coating
  • Sprinkles in red, white and blue (for topping)

Instructions

  1. For the truffles: Beat together butter and sugar using an electric mixer until combined. Add cake mix, flour, salt, and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Add milk and food coloring to make a dough consistency. Mix in sprinkles by hand.
  2. Roll dough into one-inch balls and place on parchment or wax paper on a cookie sheet. Chill balls in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to firm up.
  3. For the coating: While dough balls are chilling, melt almond bark in the microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. Stir between intervals.
  4. Using a fork, dip truffles into melted almond bark and gently twirl around to remove excess coating. Place truffle back on cookie sheet and top with sprinkles. Repeat with remaining balls until finished.
  5. Chill truffles in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  6. Makes approximately 24–30 truffles.

  11. These look so festive and fun! I love truffles and would totally make this in a red velvet form instead of strawberry, but these look delicious!

  12. Oh I just love these! So fun and festive! Pinned!

  13. Thanks for all the replies everyone! 🙂

  14. Can you substitute fresh/frozen strawberries instead of the cake mix and puree that?

    • I’m assuming you mean to use regular cake mix, but flavor it with real strawberries? There isn’t a whole lot of liquid in this recipe, but you could probably substitute some of the milk with the strawberry puree. And, the strawberries would add natural red coloring so you may not need much if any red coloring. I’m very curious how this would work so if you decide to try it, come back and let me know! 🙂

      • I meant make my own cake mix. Since cake flour is already a part of the recipe and cake mix is just more flour, strawberry flavor and leavening (baking soda or powder I’m assuming), I’m wondering if I can just use strawberries and some extra flour since I don’t think baking soda/powder will matter since there’s no baking. I could be wrong, I just didn’t know if someone had tried that before. I’m looking to try & make it more natural.

  15. Looks yummy! Could you make it with red velvet cake mix instead of strawberry?

  16. Yum! I love that it’s no bake, just at the time of year I don’t even want to look at my oven, much less bake in it. Thank you for sharing!

  17. So fun and SO festive!

  18. These are great! Can’t wait to try them!
