Cake Batter Truffles

These require no words. Just eat.

1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. yellow cake mix
1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c. white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
4 Tbsp. milk

16 oz. white chocolate chips
4 Tbsp. yellow cake mix

Beat together butter and sugar until combined.  Add cake mix, flour, salt, and vanilla, and mix thoroughly.  Add 3 Tbsp. of milk or more to make a dough consistency. (I used 4 Tbsp, and then let my KitchenAid run for a few minutes to form the dough).  Add sprinkles if desired.  Roll dough into 1" balls and place on a wax paper-lined cookie sheet.  Chill in the fridge for about 15 minutes.

While dough is chilling, melt white chocolate until smooth (I used the microwave and stirred every 30 seconds; took about 1 1/2 minutes).  Mix in cake mix until incorporated completed.  Using a fork, dip the truffles into the melted chocolate and shake off any excess.  Place truffles back on cookie sheet and let harden.  Makes about 24-30 truffles.
