Carrot Cake Truffles
You all know I love Instant Pot cake! So I wanted to take a little spin on cake, and transform this cake mix recipe. I hope you enjoy these truffles as much as we have.
How to Make
Cake Batter | Follow the directions to make a cake batter and pour and cook in the pressure as directed. This is very straightforward since you are using a carrot cake boxed cake mix.
Mixing Into Cake Truffles | Once your cake is cooled you will mix with the cream cheese frosting. Use a cookie scoop and roll into round balls.
Dipping | Dip your cake truffles in white chocolate, drizzle over the top, and top with nuts. You can decorate your carrot cake bites however you would like.
Variations To Carrot Cake Truffles Recipe
- Consider making a homemade carrot cake instead of box
- Add in some freshly shredded carrots for texture
- Put truffles on a stick and dip into chocolate to transform to a cake pop
- Decorate differently with sprinkles for Easter, etc
Can I Make This Recipe With A Different Flavor Of Cake
Essentially you can make this recipe with any type of cake mix you would like. I am a huge fan of carrot cake (like this Carrot Cake Cheesecake recipe) but even a vanilla, chocolate, or gingerbread would be awesome.
Depending on the time of year, or holiday approaching change it up and create truffles for all year round.

Best Way To Store Carrot Cake Truffles
Since there is cream cheese in these truffle bites, they need to be refrigerated. Place in an airtight container and store in the fridge. I put parchment paper in between layers if I stack, to help prevent the cake truffles from sticking together.
