Cake Batter Truffle Cupcake Pops

Cupcake Truffle Pops via elisebakesI wasn’t sure exactly what to call these, but I think Cake Batter Truffle Cupcake Pops is descriptive enough, hah.  I whipped up a batch of funfetti cake batter truffles, shaped them into cupcakes and dipped them into candy melts.  Result = Adorable!  And soo delicious!Cupcake Truffle Pops via elisebakesCupcake Truffle Pops via elisebakesCake Batter Truffle Pops:Cupcake Truffle Pops via elisebakes

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup yellow cake mix, dry
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3-4 Tbsp milk
  • 2 Tbsp sprinkles (optional, I forgot to use them!)
  • brown and pink colored candy melts
  • cake pop or lollipop sticks
  • sprinkles, red m&ms or other candies for decorating
  1. Beat butter and sugar until combined.
  2. Add flour, cake mix, vanilla, and salt and beat until combined throughout.
  3. Add milk by the tablespoon until you reach a dough consistency (I usually end up using just 3 tbsp).  The dough will be sort of crumbly, but you should still be able to form balls out of it.
  4. Mix in sprinkles and form balls out of the dough.
  5. Chill balls in the refrigerator until cool (or pop in the freezer for ~10 min).
  6. Use a 1.5 inch flower shaped cookie cutter to shape the bottom half into the Cupcake Truffle Pops via elisebakescupcake base.  I put them back in the freezer for a couple minutes, then used a sharp knife to cut off part of the bottom so the base wouldn’t be so long.  The photo to the right is after I cut them.
  7. Melt brown candy melts according to package directions. Dip the bottom half of the cupcake truffles into the chocolate candy melts and insert a cake pop stick into it.  Place back in refrigerator to let the coating harden.
  8. Melt pink candy melts according to package directions.  Dip the top in the pink coating, decorate, and let harden.
