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 them 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! Be sure to scroll down, as we have plenty of other tasty additions for St Patrick’s Day!

- 1-1/2 cup flour

- 2 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt

- For the truffles: Beat together butter and sugar using an electric mixer until combined.

- Add 3–4 Tablespoons of milk (I used 3) if needed to make a dough consistency.
- Mix in sprinkles by hand.
- 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.
- For the coating: While dough balls are chilling, melt chocolate coating in the microwave in 30-second intervals until melted. Stir between intervals.
- Using a pop stick or fork, dip truffles into melted chocolate and gently twirl or tap to remove excess coating.
- Place truffle back on the cookie sheet and top with sprinkles. Repeat with the remaining balls until finished.
- Chill truffles in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
