Easy Strawberries and cream cake truffles recipe for Valentines Day!
Well hello sweethearts! Valentines day is approaching, and I have another sweet recipe for you to enjoy. I made these delicious strawberries and cream cake truffles, and my family absolutely went nuts. Wanna know something even better? I was even able to enjoy them ( I’m allergic to strawberries! 🙁 ..). Now I know you’re wondering how in the world I was able to eat this right? Easy! I used Pillsbury’s Strawberry Cake mix, which is actually artificially flavored, but taste pretty damn good if I do say myself! To add even more strawberry flavor, I added a package of strawberry Jello. It was AHH-Mazing y’all! If you’re one of those lucky people that can eat strawberries, you can add diced strawberries to the cake batter, and I’m sure that will be freaking delicious! Let me show you show I made these strawberries and cream cake truffles!
I started off by grabbing my large mixing bowl and adding in the strawberry cake mix, strawberry Jello powder, eggs, vegetable oil, and water. I then mixed everything until it was well incorporated, and lump free. I then lightly oiled a 9×13 bake dish, and poured in the cake batter. The cake was baked on 350 F, for 35-40 minutes.
once I removed the cake from the oven, I let it cool completely, then I crumbled it, and placed the cake crumbs into a large bowl. I added cream cheese frosting into the bowl with the crumbled cake, and mixed everything until it was almost like play dough ( easy to form a balls). I then scooped out the cake, and rolled it into small balls. I dipped the cake balls in melted vanilla chips,and placed the dip cake balls in mini cupcake cups. Next, I let the vanilla harden.
Once the vanilla hardened, I designed my truffles to my preference, and placed them into tin cans, and Valentine themed treat boxes!
Seriously, these strawberries and cream cake truffles were super easy to make, and we absolutely loved them! You can make these truffles for yourself, your sweetheart, or even make them as a family on Valentines day!
