  3. Stir in the frosting until a dough forms. If the dough seems dry, you can add additional frosting, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

  4. Roll the cake mixture into tablespoon sized balls. Place the balls on a parchment lined baking sheet and chill for at least one hour.

  5. Melt the candy melts in a bowl in the microwave, heating for 30-second increments, then stirring until completely smooth.

  7. Place each truffle on a parchment lined sheet pan. Top with sprinkles.

  8. Repeat the process with  the remaining cake truffles and candy melts. Store in the refrigerator until ready to eat. Can be made up to 3 days in advance.
