No Bake Funfetti Truffles

So... an important fact to remember about me is that I LOVE sprinkles!!!!!!!  So, I also love all things "funfetti".

I've had these truffles pinned on Pinterest for quite a while now, but I hadn't made them because I so rarely buy cake mix.  If I do buy it, it's always yellow butter cake for gooey butter cookies (the hubby's fave).  But, the other day I was in Walmart, putzing around and decided to pick up a box on funfetti cake mix.  And then I made these truffles... twice... this week alone.

In my defense, I quartered the recipe the first time and only made six truffles just for Thomas and me.  The second time, I made a whole batch to take to Bible study.  But that also doesn't mean that some of them didn't stay at home to get eaten...

So, needless to say, these are delicious.  And sprinkles is a main ingredient, so you can't go wrong with that!

No Bake Funfetti Truffles
Adapted from: Chef in Training
Makes about 24 truffles

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup Funfetti cake mix, dry
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4-6 tablespoons milk
  • 16 ounces of your choice of chocolate (I used vanilla baking chocolate and milk chocolate chips.)
  • 4 tablespoons Funfetti cake mix, dry
  • Extra sprinkles
  1. Combine the butter and sugar using an electric mixer.
  2. Blend in vanilla.
  3. Add flour, cake mix, and salt, and mix thoroughly.
  4. Add about 4 tablespoons of milk and mix thoroughly with a spatula or your hands.  I eventually started kneading it like a dough.  If the dough is still crumbly, add a little more milk.  You want the dough to stick together but not to be really wet.
  5. Add 2-3 tablespoons of extra sprinkles if desired.
  6. Divide into equal sized portions and roll into one inch balls, about 24.  Place on a cookie sheet or plate covered with wax paper, and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes.
  7. Melt baking chocolate or chocolate chips in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between.  Make sure the chocolate is very melted before proceeding.
  8. Stir in the extra 4 tablespoons of cake batter.
  9. Dip truffles into chocolate using a small fork or toothpicks.  Shake off excess chocolate and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
  10. Top with sprinkles.
  11. Refrigerate until it's time to serve them!
 Enjoy your pretty easy, yummy treat!
