Easy Christmas Sugar Cookie Truffles

Holidays are all about enjoying some quality time with friends and family, eating good food, and indulging yourself with some sweets! And there is nothing more appropriate and better than making these Sugar Cookie Truffles.

They are very easy to make, look festive, and are the perfect treat to have during the holidays!

We make them with butter, cake mix, cane sugar, and vanilla. Then, we roll them into individual balls and dip them into white chocolate, and top them with sprinkles. They are delicious in every single way, and both kids and adults adore them. 

Also, you could make them in various shapes, and colors. If dark chocolate is your preference, feel free to coat them in dark or even mint chocolate.

Should I heat treat the cake mix?

Absolutely! In this recipe, we went ahead and heat-treated the cake mix. Just like flour, cake mixes should not be consumed raw but should be heat-treated to make sure salmonella or other bacterias are not consumed.

What is the best white chocolate to use?

White chocolate can be tricky to use, especially when melting it. Therefore, we strongly suggest using white chocolate wafers. Also, you could use the melting wafers. Both have a nice and rich consistency and work perfectly in this recipe. 


Simply, place wafers in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave at 50% power level for about 30 seconds. Then, stir it, and microwave for another 20-30 seconds, or until you get a nice and smooth texture. 

Can I make Sugar Cookie Truffles in advance?

Yes. These treats are ideal to make in advance as they can be easily stored. Once you roll them, simply put them in an airtight container, and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. They can stay fresh for quite a long time, so feel free to make a larger batch and enjoy them for days to come!

Also, you could freeze them. Just transfer them to a freezer-safe dish. Then, refrigerate for up to 6 months. Defrost overnight in the refrigerator or counter prior to serving.

Recipe Tips:

  • Not a fan of white chocolate? Then, substitute it with milk or dark chocolate. 
  • Also, for even easier dipping, use two forks, and use them to dip into melted chocolate.
  • Use any cake mix that you like, chocolate, yellow cake, or even funfetti.

Those truffles look quite delicious! I'd love to try this one out for Christma, I'm sure the kids would totally love this.



Omgosh these look deliciois. I am deff. Going to make them. But i am kind of confused. You mentioned "flour" to put in the oven. Is that the cake mix? The ingredients do not mention flour. Also, we sift the flour into the bowl. Add butter ...and cake mix? Do we need flour as well or is that another term for the cake mix. I just want to make sure i get the recipe right when making this deliciousness.


yes, cake mix sorry, I have updated the recipe.
