Shamrock No-Bake Cake Batter Truffles

Last month, I shared my No-Bake Cake Batter Truffles, which are downright divine. So, I’ve been looking for ideas to kick ’em up a notch or two, just for the fun of it.

Last week, while happily sipping on a minty milkshake (SCROLL DOWN…WE HAVE A SPECIAL TREAT FOR YOU), I realized I needed to modify this recipe in time for St. Patrick’s Day festivities. The luck of the Irish was with me during my experiment and once again, the end result was a winner.

It’s amazing what a little peppermint extract and a few drops of green food coloring can do! Sometimes just a touch of this and that brings out the best!

Dip these little nuggets in either white or milk chocolate and cover with holiday-colored sprinkles. You’ll be all set for any St. Paddy’s Day celebrations.

For anyone who loves mint and chocolate together, this is a must-try! Happy Shamrocks Day!!!!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

Truffles:

  • 1-1/2 c. flour
  • 1 c. white cake mix
  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. peppermint extract
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 3-4 tbsp. milk
  • 5-6 drops, green food coloring
  • 2 tbsp. holiday sprinkles

Coating:

  • 16 ounces milk or white chocolate coating
  • Holiday sprinkles

Instructions

  1. For the truffles: Beat together butter and sugar using an electric mixer until combined.
  2. Add cake mix, flour, salt, peppermint extract and vanilla extract and mix thoroughly.
  3. Add 3–4 tbsp. of milk (I used 3) if needed to make a dough consistency.
  4. Mix in sprinkles by hand.
  5. 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.
  6. For the coating: While dough balls are chilling, melt chocolate coating in the microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. Stir between intervals.
  7. Using a pop stick or fork, dip truffles into melted chocolate and gently twirl or tap to remove excess coating.
  8. Place truffle back on cookie sheet and top with sprinkles. Repeat with remaining balls until finished.
  9. Chill truffles in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
