No Bake Cake Truffles

For my birthday this past year I made peppermint red velvet cake truffles. These are a no bake recipe. The kind of cake and flavors added to it can vary. I just wanted something festive and easy for my December birthday. The hardest part is dripping the cake balls into chocolate. I need to work on this technique to prefect it, but look nice and rustic this way…yeah I'll go with rustic.
I found the recipe here:


1 cup red velvet cake mix dry (or any cake mix)
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 Tbsp. Agave nectar
1 tsp. peppermint extract (optional and changeable to any flavor you feel like adding)
- - dipping chocolate


In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients, except dipping chocolate, and stir to combine.This mixture should be quite solid and not runny, but not so dry that you can’t mold it into balls. If you find that your mixture is a little too runny, add a touch more cake mix. If it’s a little too dry, add more sweetened condensed milk/agave.
After you’ve made the dough, refrigerate or freeze for 15 minutes and then remove and roll into balls. 
Lay parchment paper down on a cookie sheet or pan.
Melt the dipping chocolate, and dip the chilled cake batter balls into melted chocolate. After the balls are dipped in chocolate, place on parchment paper.
Place truffles in freezer or fridge to set up.

Yields: 20 to 30 truffles depending on size preference. Store in refrigerator or freezer.

  1. Looks wonderful. I would like to try adding rum instead of peppermint.
