Cake Batter Truffles or Cake Pops- Looking for a fun and versatile dessert? These little gems are just what you are looking for! They start with a cake mix and can be dressed up or down to fit your taste. A great option for a party!
- Dry cake mix + ingredients called for on box
- Canned frosting
- Melting chocolate wafers
Cake Mix: Any flavor cake mix will work. The size of the box/package should be a standard size box ( 15-18 oz) for the recipe to work correctly. Don’t forget you will need any ingredients called for on the box!
Canned Frosting: Again, use your favorite flavor/brand. As long as the can is 14 ounces ( or close to it) in size, you are good to go.
Melting Chocolate: I like to use Wilton candy melts for these types of recipes. However, you may find a different brand/variety that you like. The Wilton variety can usually be found in Walmart. If you can’t locate them, check out the recipe card for the link to purchase.
- After baking the cake, let it cool for approx 20-30 minutes before breaking up the cake. This makes the process easier and safer. You don’t want to burn yourself!
- Don’t skip the freezing step! The longer you can freeze the formed cake balls, the better. But, be sure to freeze for at least an hour. If desired, you can freeze them overnight for several days before coating them in chocolate. If you don’t freeze them, they will fall apart in the hot melted chocolate when you coat them.
- If you wish to add sprinkles or toppings, do this immediately after coating them in melted chocolate. The chocolate sets pretty quick!
- Want to Make Cake Pops? Simply insert a lollipop stick in the formed truffle before freezing. You can probably find these in the same section as the Wilton melting chocolate, but, again, check out the recipe card for a link to purchase.

- When you are ready, melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a saucepan over medium heat until smooth.
- Dip each cake ball into the melted chocolate and coat well. Tap off any access chocolate and place back on the parchment line baking sheet. If you are going to add sprinkles/toppings, do this now. The chocolate will set quickly.
- Let them set for about 30 minutes for the chocolate to set.
- Keep any leftovers in the refrigerator.
