Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter softened at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups white cake mix
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon peppermint extract
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • Green gel food coloring

White Chocolate Coating:

  • 10 oz white chocolate wafers or chopped white chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons green sanding sugar

Instructions

Heat treat the flour:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • In a large bowl mix cake mix and flour.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread flour mix in an even layer.
  • Bake for 5-7 minutes, use a thermometer to check the temperature, it should reach 160F (72C).
  • Remove from oven and allow it to cool. Remember, we are heating it, not baking, don’t expect much color change, it should NOT turn golden-brown.
  • Run it through a sifter to break up any clumps that may have formed while baking.

Truffles:

  • Cover a cookie sheet with waxed paper and set aside.
  • Add the flour mix to a large bowl.
  • Slice butter into small pieces and add to the bowl. Add sugar.
  • Using a fork, work the butter into the flour and cake mix until fully combined and it resembles smooth cookie dough.
  • Mix in peppermint extract and gel food coloring until fully combined.
  • Mix in mini chocolate chips.
  • Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop batter and roll it into a ball.
  • Place truffle balls onto the prepared baking sheet. Place into the freezer for 10 minutes before coating with white chocolate.

White Chocolate Coating:

  • 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.
  • Using two forks, dip each ball into the melted white chocolate and place on the prepared plate, top with sanding sugar immediately.
  • Place truffles in the fridge for at least 20 – 30 minutes or until the white chocolate coating hardens.
