Cake Mix Cookie Dough Truffles

In an effort to make raw cookie dough easily accessible to the entire universe, and also to procrastinate on my never ending list of really important stuff that I need to get done like yesterday, and because I had a box of cake mix staring at me every time I opened my cabinet door, and because I was craving something really sweet that was cookie dough, I offer this to you today.

Yes, cookie dough truffles have been done before but mine are a little different because the recipe calls for an entire cake mix, which makes the whole process a little easier.  Or maybe just in theory.  I’m not really sure about this because regular cookie dough truffles are not hard to begin with.  But I think utilizing a cake mix has a psychological effect on the brain that says “you will have that dough whipped up in no time, monkey.”

These made my family so happy.  I had some really uplifting moments during my consumption, too.

Here are my notes:

-These are super sweet, probably due to the cake mix, brown sugar, and sweetened condensed milk, which is not a problem for me, but may be a problem for you.

-I like mini chips.  Gosh they are fun.

-Yes, you will have some sweetened condensed milk left over and that will bother some people.  I stuck mine if the fridge, but I am contemplating making another batch.  That would use it up.  But I don’t know.  These are really a temptation to me.  We’ll see.

Cake Mix Cookie Dough Truffles
1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 (18.25-ounce) box yellow cake mix (I used Duncan Hines Butter Golden)
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Chocolate bark for dipping
Beat together the butter, cake mix, sweetened condensed milk, and light brown sugar until smooth.  Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.  Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a wax paper lined baking sheet.  Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Melt chocolate bark and stir until smooth.  Dip cookie dough balls in chocolate, letting excess drip off, and place on baking sheet.  Refrigerate just until chocolate hardens

      Lauri, I’m so sorry about that. Hmmm…I think you could easily increase the sweetened condensed milk and that should take care of the problem.

    Not sure if you’ve ever tried Vietnamese coffee but it’s really strong coffee poured on top of sweetened condensed milk! Thought it would be a great use for your leftovers 馃槈

    Oh my gosh these do look wonderful. Next time my son does something really nice, these are his. If you like cream and sugar in your coffee your leftover sweetened condensed milk is great in coffee. I used to work for a caterer who always put it out on her coffee bar and it always went first.

      Gosh, anonymous, I never thought that they wouldn’t be safe to eat. My family will eat anything, lol! None of us have gotten sick yet.;-) I have seen other recipes that use a little bit of dry cake mix, so I’m gonna say that these would be safe, but you should probably do your own research.
