Ingredients

Truffles

Coating

  • 2 1/4 cups (14 oz) chopped chocolate-flavored candy coating
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons shortening
  • 1/4 cup white vanilla baking chips

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. Make and bake cake mix as directed on box using water, oil and eggs. Cool completely.
  • 2
    Crumble cake into large bowl. Add frosting and liqueur; mix well. Roll mixture into 1 1/2-inch bails; place on cookie sheet. In 1-quart heavy saucepan, melt candy coating over low heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in 3 teaspoons of the shortening until smooth.
  • 3
    Place sheet of waxed paper on work surface. To coat each truffle, place on 2-pronged meat fork; hold over saucepan of chocolate. Spoon chocolate over truffle, making sure to cover cake particles completely. Let excess chocolate drip back into pan. Using tip of knife, slide coated truffle onto paper. Let stand at room temperature until set, about 15 minutes.

    In small microwavable bowl, microwave baking chips and remaining 1/2 teaspoon shortening on High 30 to 60 seconds or until mixture is smooth. Drizzle over truffles. Let stand until set.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You can omit the white vanilla drizzle. Before the coating has set up, sprinkle truffles with candy sprinkles, colored sugar or finely chopped nuts. Or, after adding the drizzle, also add a sprinkle!
  • tip 2
    Use oil-based food color to change the color of the melted vanilla-flavored candy coating.
