I just made these. Did not use the sugar on the outside, but it was still good. Going to cut the batch with rice flour to make it less calories. I’ll try to let you know when I do that, and give you the results
Is it safe to eat uncooked cake mix? I’m not sure that flour should be eaten raw. They look really nice!
It doesn’t have egg, so it is safe to eat raw.
These look delicious! I have one question … it appears the sugar the balls are being rolled in is colored yellow. Did you color the sugar yourself, or did you buy colored sugar in a cake decorating store or Michaels?
I had colored sugar leftover from decorating Easter cookies. I bought it at a grocery store.
Can I substitute cream cheese for some of the butter?
Yes, you can but the cream cheese has a more powerful flavor than butter.
Are these ok to leave unrefigerated? I’m thinking about shipping them as a gift.
Could these be frozen?
In theory, yes. However, if you froze them, I would do it before you rolled them in sugar as the condensation would melt the sugar as they thawed.

Easy Lemon Truffle Recipe
You can use fresh squeezed lemon juice or packaged lemon juice if you do not have any lemons on hand. If you have fresh lemon, then grate some of the rind and add some fresh lemon zest. You can use regular granulated sugar to coat the lemon truffles, or you can use yellow sugar sprinkles.
1 box of lemon cake mix
7 tablespoons butter, melted (plus a few extra to butter hands)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest, optional
3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided (add 1/4 cup to batter, use the remaining sugar for coating the truffles)
1. Pour the cake mix into a large bowl and add in the melted butter, lemon juice, lemon zest, and 1/4 cup of sugar. Stir to combine the ingredients.
2. If the mixture is crumbly, add an extra tablespoon of melted butter at a time until the dough holds together.
3. Pour the sugar sprinkles into a large bowl or platter. Roll the cookie dough into 2\u2033 balls and then in the sprinkles as shown. After the lemon truffles have been rolled in sprinkles, place in the refrigerator to set prior to serving.
While I usually like to cook from scratch, I love that I usually have these ingredients in my pantry, but also that I can make them at the last minute for any event. I keep imagining serving these at a grown up tea party to my girlfriends! They are so bright and fresh! What an ideal treat for a baby shower, wedding shower, or birthday party!
Make this easy lemon truffle recipe for your family and impress them with how beautiful this dessert looks!
