  • For the Truffle Base:
    • White Cake Mix: 1 package (15.25 ounces)
    • All-purpose Flour: 1/2 cup (ensure it’s heat-treated for safe raw consumption)
    • Unsalted Butter: 2 sticks, room temperature
    • Mini Chocolate Chips: 1/2 cup
    • Pink Gel Food Color: 8 drops
    • Watermelon Extract: 1 teaspoon (optional for enhanced flavor)
  • For the Coating:
    • Wilton Green Candy Melts: 2 packages (12 ounces each)


  1. Prepare the Base:
    • Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
    • In a large bowl, combine room temperature butter, cake mix, and flour until the mixture becomes smooth and dough-like.
    • Stir in watermelon extract (if using) and pink gel food coloring.
    • Fold in mini chocolate chips evenly throughout the mixture.
  2. Form the Truffles:
    • Using a cookie scoop, measure out the mix and roll it into small balls. Place each on the prepared baking sheet.
    • Chill in the freezer for 10 minutes or in the refrigerator for 30 minutes until firm.
  3. Coat the Truffles:
    • Melt green candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 30-40 seconds, stir, and repeat until the candy is smooth and fully melted.
    • Using a fork, dip each chilled truffle into the candy melts, ensuring an even coating.
    • Place each coated truffle back on the waxed paper and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes until the coating is set and firm.

  • Heat treatment of flour: Spread your flour on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F (177°C) for about 5 minutes to kill any potential bacteria.
  • If using white chocolate instead of candy melts for the coating, consider adding the coloring only after the chocolate has cooled slightly to avoid seizing.
  • Store the truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator to keep them fresh and delicious.
