Cake Truffles

I'm not supposed to share this recipe with anyone, so keep it under your hat ok?

My kids LOVE these 'truffles' and they are unbelievably easy and fun for kids to do. My 10 year old made them last night to bring to school as a treat for the class today. She doesn't want anyone else to know the 'recipe' since I made this up for them one night due to our (my) penchant for eating dry cake mix as a snack. *wink*


1 box white cake mix
1 container pink vanilla frosting with sprinkles

In a large mixing bowl combine the cake mix and the tub of frosting. Mix until the dough is roughly the consistancy of play-doh. Use up to 1 T water if you need to. Depending on the temperature and humidity sometimes I have to use water, sometimes I don't.

Using a small ice cream/dough scoop (the smallest size from Pampered Chef) or make 1 inch balls by hand. You can roll them in the colored sprinkles that come with the frosting, or just add the sprinkles to the dough when mixing. Place on parchment or foil lined cookie sheets. Does not need to be refrigerated.
