These Carrot Cake Truffles are a delicious combination of carrot cake and cream cheese frosting dipped in white chocolate. You're going to love them!

Ingredients

  • 1 prepared carrot cake* - 13x9" pan, no frosting
  • 1 cup cream cheese frosting - my recipe is linked below
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) pure white candy melts
  • 1 bar (4 ounces) white chocolate baking bar - roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable shorting (Crisco)
  • 1 cup orange candy melts - I used a combination of orange and yellow.
  • Carrot sugar candies - optional

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, crumble the carrot cake with your hands. Using a spatula, stir in about 3/4 cup of the cream cheese frosting. Add more as needed. The mixture should stay together when rolled into a ball, but not be overly sticky.
  • Roll the cake mixture into 1-inch balls. Set the cake balls on a plate and refrigerate until cool, about 30 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, add the white candy melts, white chocolate, and vegetable shortening. Microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring after each until melted.
  • Dip the cooled cake balls into the melted white chocolate mixture and coat completely. Set on wax paper and allow chocolate to set completely.
  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the orange candy melts by microwaving them at 30-second intervals, stirring after each, until melted.
  • Add the melted orange candy melts to a piping bag or plastic baggie. (Use caution if using a plastic bag. If your melted candy is too warm, it can cause the bag to break.) Cut a small tip off one corner of the bag and drizzle the melted candy onto the coated cake balls. Top with a carrot sugar candy, if desired.
  • Once the candy coating is completely set, pack and store the truffles in an air-tight container.

Notes

*Bake cake in a 9x13 pan according to the package directions. Allow to cool.
