No-Bake Cake Batter Truffles

Cake Batter Truffles are here to brighten your day! Fun to make, these are no-bake and a great kitchen project with kids. With just a few ingredients, these Cake Batter Truffles taste great and look cute.

Perfect for summer parties, birthday parties or just those days when you need a fun treat. If you love cookie dough, you will be a huge fan of these truffles, as the texture is very similar.

Funfetti cake mix gives these Cake Batter Truffles a nice flavor. The truffles are soft and buttery, with lots of sprinkles and coated in white chocolate.

They are absolutely a must-try! My other popular no-bake desserts are No Bake Cake Batter TrufflesWatermelon Truffles, and No Bake Almond Joy Roll.

No Bake Cake Batter Truffles Recipe Tips:

  • Using a funfetti cake mix is best because of it ads a lot of flavors. Also, you can use a yellow cake mix if you don’t have funfetti cake mix on hand, just add more sprinkles to the batter.
  • The unsalted butter must be room temperature, not greasy and oily, at that point the butter is way too melted.
  • Adding extra sprinkles to the batter is optional, but why not load it with sprinkles.
  • 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 and stir well as the residual heat will melt the remaining chocolate chunks.

What are sprinkles made of?

The sprinkles are made of sugar, corn syrup, cornstarch, little food-grade wax, and artificial coloring and flavoring.

Can I eat raw flour/cake mix?

Yes, you can, BUT it is NOT recommended and you do it at your own risk, as some of the flour it involves the risk of E.Coli contamination.

To kill the bacteria, you can heat-treat the flour prior to adding it to no-bake desserts.

How do I Heat-Treat Raw Flour?

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread flour or cake mix in an even layer.
  2. Bake for 5-7 minutes, use a thermometer to check that the flour reached 160F (72C) immediately after removing from oven. Make sure the thermometer is inserted in the flour and isn’t touching/reading the temperature of the hot pan.
  3. Once the flour has reached 160F (72C) allow it to cool and run it through a sifter to break up any clumps that may have formed while baking.  Set aside.
  4. Make sure you don’t burn the flour. Remember, we are heating it, not baking, don’t expect much color change, it should NOT turn golden-brown.
  5. Make sure you sift it after the heat treatment and let it fully cook before adding it to no-bake desserts.

Tools/Ingredients I used to make these No Bake Cake Batter Truffles Recipe:

  • White Chocolate Wafers – specifically designed for melting, these are so easy to melt in the microwave with fewer chances that they will overheat and separate as white chocolate tends to do. I highly recommend them, you can dip truffles into the melted white chocolate or fruits.
  • Funfetti Cake Mix – I like this one in this recipe as it has a distinctive, festive flavor and is already loaded with tiny sprinkles and candies.
  • Yellow Cake Mix – if you are not a fan of funfetti cake, you can use a yellow cake mix.
  • Sprinkles – rainbow sprinkles add a pop of color and are such a nice addition to these truffles.

Disclaimer: Please understand that I can’t guarantee you that heat-treating the flour will eliminate all the bacteria. I am very comfortable with eating raw flour, but please understand that if you choose to do so it’s solely your decision and at your own risk.

No Bake Cake Batter Truffles:

  1. Slice butter into 8-10 pieces and add it to a large bowl, add funfetti cake mix, sugar, flour and vanilla extract.

  4. Measuring 1 tablespoon of truffle batter or using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop dough and using your palms roll it into a ball.

  5. Place truffle balls onto the prepared baking sheet. Place in freezer for 10 minutes before coating with white chocolate.

  6. The amount of truffles you will get depends on how large or small you make them.

White Chocolate Coating:

  1. Add white chocolate wafers 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 10-15 seconds and stir well.

  2. Using a fork, dip each dough ball into the melted white chocolate and place on the prepared plate, top with sprinkles immediately.

  3. Place truffles in the fridge for at least 20 – 30 minutes or until the white chocolate coating hardens.

  4. Store truffles in the fridge for up to 7-10 days.

eat good 4 life

I love any type of truffles. These look sensational



Do you think these would work with gluten free cake mix and almond flour?





This looks easy and I love funfetti, can't wait to try this!


thank you!


Lane & Holly @ With Two Spoons

I love the sprinkles! Fun!


Lane & Holly @ With Two Spoons

I love the sprinkles! Fun! My kids would love this!



Could you turn these into cake pops by adding the stick to the pop before putting it into the freezer?


Yes, totally!



Are you supposed to add water because mine are falling apart and not able to be scooped into balls. ?


Hi Lore, no, don't add water, if the batter is too dry, add 1-2 tablespoons of milk, until the right texture is achieved. This may happen when the butter is a bit cold, but its an easy fix with milk.



Do they need to be stored in the refrigerator? If i make them and bring them to a birthday party do they sit out at room temp (wrapped up) ok?


Yes, after you make them you need to store them in the refrigerator. You can remove them from the fridge and store them at room temperature for a few hours for the party, but no longer than a few hours, as they will start getting soft.



Love these! So easy and perfect for anyone who appreciates that cookie dough texture and cake batter flavor. I coated mine with almond bark instead of white chocolate - tasty!


Jana D

Hi!  These look easy and fun!  The recipe states “unsalted salted butter”. Which is correct? Unsalted or salted?  Thank you





Do you use cake mix and flour


yes, both!


Trisha Peel

Can anyone tell me the approx. "yields" for this recipe??


it actually says 16 truffles



Do you have to bake the flour first? Are s me to eat raw flour?


Its not mandatory, it depends if you feel that eating it raw is safe.



Can you use salted butter?


No, not in this recipe.



I made this recipe last night for a party on Sunday which is an hour drive for me. I kept them in the freezer over night but I'm debating whether to keep them frozen until tomorrow or move them to the fridge now. Do you recommend storing in the freezer until the day of to make sure they do not melt or will the fridge be cool enough? I also want to make sure they are thawed enough to eat on time.



I just made this recipe. It looks great, just put them in refrigerator,  question it called for 1-1/2 cup of cake mix.  So I had to throw away the rest of the cake mix. Cake mix was almost 16 oz.  did I do the right thing? 


You don't have to throw it away, you can still use it in other recipes :)



Can you use almond bark instead of white chocolate?


yes, it will work great!


Jenni Williams

how long do these last once u make them? and do they need to be refrigerated?


they can easily last 5 days, yes, keep the refrigerated.


Stone TeSelle

I thought eating raw flour is dangerous cause some flour can contain bacteria, and get you sick


yes, please see the post, I provide tips on how to heat treat the flour before consumption.



Just curious, but dont you think this would work with any type of cake mix (like strawberry flavored). Dorry, I'm new to cake balls and yours looks like the best recipe I've found, but want to make strawberry.


Hi Kimber, yes for sure this will work with any cake mix and the Strawberry one sounds delish!


Polly Morgan

I agree with not eating raw flour. Can you bake the cake mix (while dry) and then proceed with instructions. Thanks!
