Christmas Funfetti Cake Batter Truffles + OXO Giveaway!

{Be sure to check out all the other products I’m giving away for the 12 Days of Giveaways! You’re going to want to enter ALL of these giveaways! Don’t forget to check back because I still have 5 more to post!} 

Good morning, folks!! I can’t believe Christmas is almost here! Gotta get my act together and get some serious baking done. And shopping. Aaaaand wrapping. It NEVER ENDS. It does eventually, I’m just being dramatic for literary effect. Is it working?

 Anyways, I’m blogging from my parents home in Ottawa, Ontario {holla!} and will be here for the next few weeks. YOU GUYS. I forgot how good my Mom’s cooking was. And how comfy the beds are. And how delicious Tim Horton’s is. My parents seriously had Timbits ready and waiting once we got off our last flight. How did they know I’m always hungry for donut holes? It’s magic! Orrr….they know I’m pregnant. Either way, I’m glad to be home.

Moving on–

These are the cutest and tastiest little no-bake treats! Not only are they an absolute cinch to make, they can be made in 20-30 minutes without having to turn on the oven! You can make these well in advance if you know you’re going to be short on time and they last up to 2 weeks in the fridge. Oh, and did I mention they taste just like CAKE BATTER? Yeah, it’s seriously tasty stuff. Plus super festive. Love those red and green sprinkles!! My daughter tried to sneak into the fridge and steal these even! That’s saying something.

No I didn’t put crack in them.

You guys!

Here’s how you make them:

Start by getting some dry ingredients. This is just flour and sugar….it fun pop top storage containers. I love these OXO storage containers! I wish my whole pantry was full of them just so I could look at them all day and think for pretty they all were. Ok, so measure out some flour, sugar and white cake mix into a bowl… and whisk together to combine and get rid of any lumps. Next, pour in a little melted butter and some milk and vanilla. Aren’t these little measuring beakers the cutest things ever?! I just about died when I got them. Last thing you need are some Christmas sprinkles! These are just Wilton brand you can get in just about any supermarket these days. Stir everything together and add in a splash of milk if you think they aren’t going to hold together. You can always squish a little together with your hands to test before scooping. Now comes the fun part…one that allows you employ your kids as child labor. Using the small OXO cookie scoop, measure out even balls of dough onto a baking sheet. 

Roll them out into even balls and refrigerate 20 minutes or so. White those are in the fridge, melt down some chocolate–I used white, but you could use any kind OR even candy melts or almond bark. I say use what you like and/or have. Dunk each ball into the chocolate to coat, remove any excess chocolate and top with more sprinkles. Because these truffles were chilled, the chocolate should harden up pretty quickly. Store these in the fridge (because there’s milk in them) until you’re ready to serve. Feel free to bring these to room temperature…or eat them right out of the fridge and let them melt away…mmm! These were so so good!

My friends at OXO want you to make these and lots of other treats for the holidays with a bunch of gear from them to you!

Included in the OXO prize pack are the following products:
-2-1.5 qt. pop top rectangular containers
-2-4 qt. square pop top containers

Is that not a truck load of stuff! You’ll get this in the mail and it’ll be like Christmas all over again! Who doesn’t want to relive the gift opening? By the way, all these products retail for over $300. Not too shabby :)

Why I love OXO products:
-They are so creative and smart! A lot of times, I look at their fun new gadgets and think “that is such a good idea!”
-They are long lasting. The pop top storage containers and all their silicone products I own have lasted me a long time and don’t seem to get worn…ever!
-They are all moderately priced. I love not having to feel guilty over buying anything from OXO because I know it’s good quality, it will last me a long time and won’t cost me an arm and a leg.
-I love how colorful they are. I know, I know…it’s a silly reason, but it’s true!!

Christmas Funfetti Cake Batter Truffles

Yield: 24 small

Ingredients:

1 cup white cake mix
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon Christmas sprinkles + more for decoration
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips or vanilla almond bark

Directions:

In a large bowl, whisk cake mix, flour and sugar. Stir in melted butter, vanilla, milk and sprinkles. Mixture should be moist and be able to hold its shape easily when formed. Using a cookie scoop, form mixture into even balls and refrigerate 20-30 minutes.

In the mean time, melt chocolate in a double boiler or slowly in the microwave. Using a fork, drop one of the cake batter truffles into the chocolate and roll around to coat. Tap off the excess gently and transfer to cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Top with more sprinkles, if desired.
