Rainbow Truffles Recipe

Brighten up any party with these eye-catching Rainbow Truffles! This no-bake recipe is a fun and festive treat that’s as delightful to look at as it is to eat. Featuring vibrant layers of color and an optional white chocolate coating, these truffles are perfect for celebrations or as a colorful gift.


  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 box white or vanilla cake mix
  • Food coloring (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)
  • 12 oz white chocolate candy melts (optional)
  • Rainbow sprinkles (optional)


  1. In a large mixer bowl, whip the cream cheese until fluffy, about 1-2 minutes.
  2. Reduce speed and blend in the cake mix until combined. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
  3. Divide the chilled mixture into six equal portions. Color each portion with food coloring as desired, rinsing the bowl between colors to maintain purity.
  4. After coloring, wrap each portion in plastic wrap and chill for another hour.
  5. Form small stacks of the colored dough in rainbow order, gently press together, and roll into balls. Chill the formed truffles in the freezer.
  6. For the chocolate coating, melt the white chocolate in the microwave at 50% power, stirring at 30-second intervals until smooth.
  7. Dip the chilled truffles into the melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off, and place on a parchment-lined tray. Add sprinkles immediately.
  8. Let the chocolate set until hard, then store truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


  • Ensure the truffle mixture is chilled sufficiently to prevent expansion and cracking of the chocolate coating.
  • Work quickly when adding sprinkles to the chocolate-coated truffles as the chocolate sets fast due to the cold truffles.
  • Keep the truffles refrigerated between servings to maintain freshness and prevent the cream cheese from spoiling.


Q: Can I make these truffles without the chocolate coating? A: Absolutely! The truffles are just as delicious and colorful without the chocolate. Simply chill and serve as is, or roll in powdered sugar or sprinkles for an extra touch.

Q: How long can I store the rainbow truffles? A: The truffles can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
