Cake mix to make truffles
cindigal posted:
Ok, I will try to make this short and make sense. I don't really make baked things, but I like to do candy things like truffles especially at holidays. I also hate to waste anything or throw things out. I was given a food gift (key lime cake) that has most ingredients but asked for additional items. Anyway, I read somewhere that you can make truffles with the cake mix and frosting. I bought a can of frosting and did the batter (minus the eggs) with one stick of butter and the cake mix and sugar packet that came with it. After beating the mix I put in in the freeze since is was mushy and not pliable enough. I tasted the batter and it was quite tasty key lime. After a while I took out batter to make small balls for the truffles. I did about 20 and put them back in the freeze to harden more since again they were getting soft.

My intention is to melt chocolate and dip the cake batter balls to make truffles. I omitted the frosting because the batter was quite sugary enough. After I do it with the chocolate, will the batter inside (I am crossing my fingers since I didn't do it yet) be mushy and run out of the chocolate..?. If it doesn't work, should I toss the rest of the batter in the bowl. I cant really do anything with it since I didn't use eggs with it.
