  • 1 box Yellow cake mix (or flavor of your choice), prepared per box instructions
  • Eggs, water, and oil, as called for on cake mix box
  • 1 cup canned vanilla frosting (or flavor of your choice), more if needed
  • 1/2 bag (10 oz bag) Dark chocolate melting wafers
  • 1/2 bag (10 oz bag) White chocolate melting wafers
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles


  • Preheat the oven per cake mix instructions. Prepare the cake mix with the amount of water, oil, and eggs per box directions. 
  • Pour into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish and bake as directed on the cake mix instructions. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  • Break apart the cake with fingers or forks until fine crumbs form.
  • Add the frosting and stir until combined and the mixture is moist and soft but not sticky.
  • Use a tablespoon cookie scoop to make balls then place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
  • Melt the candy melts in a bowl in the microwave, heating for 30 second increments, then stirring until completely smooth.
  • Place each cake truffle on a fork and use a spoon to pour the melted chocolate over the cake truffle. Tap gently against the side of the bowl to remove excess melted chocolate. 
  • Place them back on the parchment lined baking sheet then add sprinkles to the top of each truffle immediately because the chocolate cools hardens quickly.
  • Store sealed in the refrigerator until needed. The cake truffles will last in the fridge 5-7 days. Enjoy!
