Over the holidays, I tried my hand at making truffles. They seemed to be very popular, and I wanted to know what the buzz was about. I started out with some of the easier recipes, and they were super yummy.

I wanted to come up with my own recipe. I decided on Butter Pecan with Maple White Chocolate Coating. They came out DELICIOUS!! They were buttery, nutty, sweet and moist – everything I look for in a truffle, with the taste of Butter Pecan Ice cream.

A lovely dessert to wake your tastebuds - this Butter Pecan Truffles Recipe is a delicious treat and a small taste of heaven.


Butter Pecan Truffle

1. Using a mixer, blend the cake mix, powdered sugar, and cream cheese until a dough forms. At first, it will look crumbly, but after a while of mixing, it will turn into a dough.
2. Refrigerate the dough for about 1 hour.
3. Remove dough from fridge and roll into small bite size balls.
4. Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler. If it is too thick, you can add oil or shortening a little at a time until you get the consistency you would like.
5. Add maple extract to the melted chocolate and stir until completely combined.
6. Using a fork (or dipping tool), dip each dough ball into the chocolate mixture so that it coats the entire thing. Then place on a tray or cookie sheet covered in wax paper. If you so choose, add a pecan to the top of the chocolate for decoration.
7. After all the balls have been dipped, place them back in the fridge to let the chocolate harden.
