Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1 package fudge cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts (I omitted these)
  • 1 tablespoon rum or rum extract
  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • additional nuts, sprinkle, sugar and/or cocoa, for garnish
  1. Prepare, bake and cool cake according to package directions.
  2. Once cool, crumble cake into large bowl. Stir with fork until crumbs are fine and uniform in size. Add 1 cup nuts, rum extract, powdered sugar and cocoa. Stir until well blended.
  3. Shape mixture into balls, about 2 tablespoons each. I used a cookie scoop.
  4. Garnish by rolling balls in finely chopped nuts, sprinkles, sugar and/or cocoa. Press firmly to adhere nuts or sprinkles to truffles.
