  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter softened at room temperature
  • 2 cups white cake mix
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Christmas sprinkles

White Chocolate Coating:

  • 10 oz white chocolate wafers or chopped white chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons Christmas sprinkles


Heat Treat Cake Mix:

  • Preheat the oven at 350 degrees F.
  • Put the flour on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure to distribute the cake mix evenly.
  • Bake for about 5 to 7 minutes, checking with a thermometer if the flour has reached 160 degrees F.
  • Once heated enough, remove from the oven, and let it cool completely. Do not let it burn.

Cake Balls:

  • Cover a large cookie sheet with waxed paper and set aside.
  • Slice butter into 8-10 pieces and add it to a large bowl, add cake mix and sugar, stir to combine.
  • Using a fork, work the butter into the cake mix until fully combined and it resembles smooth dough. Add vanilla extract. Use your hands to combine all the ingredients.
  • Mix in sprinkles.
  • Measure 1 tablespoon of batter or using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, and using your palms roll it into a ball.
  • Place truffle balls onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Place in the freezer for 10 minutes before coating with white chocolate.
  • The number of truffles will vary on how large or small you make them.

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 a fork, dip each cake ball into the melted white chocolate and place bake on the baking sheet, top with sprinkles immediately.
  • Place cake balls in the fridge for at least 20 – 30 minutes or until the white chocolate coating hardens.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 7-10 days.
