  • After you’ve made the dough, refrigerate or freeze for 15 minutes and then remove and roll into balls.lace 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.
  • Store in refrigerator or freezer.

  12. Brenda

    Thanks to Pinterest I found both of these amazing recipes. I'm thinking they might have to make an appearance at my daughter's wedding!

  13. MC

    You said if you don't use the agave just use all sweetened milk. All? The rest of the can? Or just the 1T that was suppose to be agave? I'm confused. Thanks.

  14. Sam

    I used chocolate cake and it took almost 3 times the amount of milk (that the recipe calls for above) to get them soft enough to roll into balls. Dry, Dry, Dry. Was it because I used chocolate cake mix?

  15. Rachel

    LOVE the fact that these are no bake. I think I'll make then serve these tonight for dessert :) yay for Christmas break!

  16. The Moes

    Just made these but they are very rich.....maybe it was the size that we made. We are making these again for my highschool daughter's friends tomorrow. LOVE IT!

  17. Anonymous

    I used evaporated milk and some flour to cut the richness, they are awesome!!! I have also made the 2nd take ones too....thank you for such an easy treat that is a hit either way!!!

    1. Amy

      Buy some coconut oil. Found mine at Publix. It comes in a jar, as it is solid at room temp. Just add a little, maybe a tsp to start, to your chocolate. Then melt the two together. It will make your chocolate satin smooth. If not, add more in small amounts until desired consistency When you dip anything with this method, it makes a nice, thinner coat. I put mine out on a cooling rack, rather than than wax paper, to set. This way, any extra chocolate drains off rather than pooling around the cake ball. Some people may prefer the "pool", in which case use the wax paper. Hope that helps!

    I just made these, they taste awesome, and the truffle itself was easy to make; but I am not an experienced dipper. I made a huge mess when I was coating the truffles, do you have any tips?

  19. Caroline

    I made these and everyone loved them! Simple to make, too! And pretty!

  20. Theresa

    Thank you, Theresa

  21. Toni Logsdon

  22. Sadie

    Approximatly how many calories would you say is in 1 cake ball?!?

  23. Lisa

  24. Vickie

    Your recipe for the no-bake cake batter balls was a hit. at the party. Great recipe

  25. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    I know I am like...a year late...but I just realized you made these and so glad you liked my recipe and that your readers seem happy with it, too!

  26. Pamela Marks

    instead of using Agave could you use sugar and if you use sugar how much should I use?

    1. Chef in Training

      instead of Agave, I would replace it with some extra sweetened condensed milk, because it needs the moisture. Hope that helps! Have a great day! Let me know if you have any more questions.

  27. Josie

    Wow! I saw this and had to try it! They taste amazing and I haven't even dipped them yet!!

  28. Corliss

    These look delicious! I really want to try making these with Funfetti cake mix!

  29. Angie

    After they were dipped in chocolate, they burst open (every last one). And they didn't have much flavour other than overly sweet. Maybe I should have added more vanilla? Either way - super a delicious idea but I wasn't a hit at my house!

    1. Monica h

      I made these tonight too, and they all cracked open. It's like the cake portion was expanding. Very strange.

  30. Chrystina

    Hi! these do look so Yummy..... We tried them this afternoon and Im sorry to say but they are a bit Over sweet. May I suggest something to tone down the sweetness such as peanut butter or sun butter mixed in? I love trying new recipes, being a baker/ chef myself for the past 6 years I use to hate if someone wasn't in love with one of my recipes. I have come to love constructive criticism though. It has helped me grow as a baker and makes my business much more successful. I like your site! Happy Baking

  32. Bb
