Yields: 20 to 30 truffles depending on size preference.  Store in refrigerator or freezer.

Directions: In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients, except chocolate chips, and stir to combine.

This mixture should be quite solid and not runny, but not so dry that you can’t mold it into balls.  If you find that your mixture is a little too runny, add a touch more cake mix.  If it’s a little too dry, add more sweetened condensed milk/agave.  I ended up using about 1.25 c of cake mix to get the perfect consistency.

After you’ve made the dough, refrigerate or freeze for 15 minutes and then remove and roll into balls.

After the balls have been made, refrigerate or freeze for 15 minutes minutes or until well-chilled, ensuring the melted chocolate will adhere and set up properly.

Melt the chocolate chips, and dip the chilled cake batter balls into melted chocolate.  Using parchment paper is a tip I’d recommend when working with melted chocolate.  Place truffles in freezer or fridge to set up.

Edited to add:

Use GF cake mix to make this recipe Gluten Free.

For those avoiding traditional sweetened condensed milk, use homemade nut/seed milk such as cashew or hemp that you make very thick and sweeten with agave.  Full fat coconut milk, sweetened with agave, may also work  There are also recipes for vegan sweetened condensed milk floating around.  Make sure that the “milk” you use is thick enough so the cake batter sticks/holds together and is sweet enough to replicate traditional sweetened condensed milk.
