Devil’s Food Cake Truffles Recipe Tips:
- Using Devil’s Food Cake mix is best as it adds a delicious flavor. You can also use regular chocolate cake mix if you don’t have Devil’s Food Cake mix on hand.
- Also, the unsalted butter must be room temperature. Not greasy and oily, at that point, the butter is way too melted.
- Be careful when melting the white chocolate as it tends to separate. Start by melting for 30 secs and stir well, and after that melt in 15 secs increments. Also, stir well as the residual heat will melt the remaining chocolate chunks.
- Use a food processor to finely ground the Oreos, you want them to have a corn flour consistency for the truffles to have a smooth texture.
Tools/Ingredients I used to make these No Bake Oreo Devil’s Food Cake Truffles:
- White Chocolate Wafers – specifically designed for melting, these are very easy to melt in the microwave with fewer chances that they will over heat and separate as white chocolate tends to do. I highly recommend them, you can dip truffles into the melted white chocolate or fruits.
- Devil’s Food Cake Mix – I like this one in this recipe as it has a distinctive very chocolaty consistency and flavor
- Chocolate Cake Mix – you can also use regular Chocolate Cake Mix if this is what you want or have on hand
- Organic Chocolate Cake Mix – this is a great organic option if you want to make this recipe with organic ingredients
- Food Processor – I have a small one and it’s so handy in so many recipes, from chopping veggies to pulverizing freezer dried fruits
Prep time: 30 minutes Total time: 30 mins
- 8 tablespoons (1/2 cup, 1 stick, 113 grams) unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
- 1½ cups Devil's Food Cake mix
- ½ cup cane sugar
- 10-14 Oreo cookies
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- ¼ cup rainbow sprinkles
White Chocolate Coating:
- 10 oz. white chocolate wafers or chopped chocolate
- Oreo crumbs
- Cover a large, flat plate with waxed paper and set aside.
- Add Oreo cookies to a food processor and ground until you get a corn flour consistency. Transfer Oreo crumbs to a small bowl. Set aside.
- Slice butter into 8-10 pieces and add it to a large bowl, add Devil's Food cake mix, sugar, ½ cup of the Oreo crumbs and vanilla extract.
- Using a fork, work the butter into the Oreo and cake mix until fully combined and it resembles smooth cookie dough. To make the process easier, mix with the fork and after that use your hands to combine all the ingredients.
- Measuring 1 tablespoon of truffle batter or using a 1 tablespoon scoop, scoop dough and using your palms roll it into a ball. Place truffle balls onto the prepared baking sheet. Place in freezer for 10 minutes before coating with white chocolate.
- The amount of truffles you will get depends on how large or small you make them.
White Chocolate Coating:
- Add white chocolate to a microwave safe bowl and melt for 30 seconds. Stir well and microwave for another 20 or 30 seconds, stir well with a spatula and if there is still chocolate that did not melt, microwave for another 15 seconds and stir well.
- Using a fork, dip each truffle ball into the melted white chocolate and place on the prepared plate, top with the remaining Oreo crumbs immediately.
- Place truffles in the fridge for at least 20 - 30 minutes or until the white chocolate coating hardens.
- Store truffles in the fridge, preferably in an airtight container for up to 7-10 days.
- Serve and enjoy!
