Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 50 mins
Chill Time 2 hrs
Total Time 3 hrs 10 mins
Servings 30 truffles


  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 1 cup vegan frosting (I used Pillsbury's cream cheese frosting)
  • 1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 cup vegan white chocolate
  • 1 cup vegan dark chocolate
  • 1/4 cup crushed candy canes


  • Preheat your oven to 350 F. Then follow the instructions on the back of the cake mix box to make the cake. Substitute the eggs for flax eggs to make this vegan! 
  • Pour the cake mixture into a greased pan and bake for 40-50 minutes in the oven. Check your cake by sticking a knife, fork, or toothpick in the middle and if it comes back clean then you are good to go! Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  • In a large bowl, crumble up the cake. The cake should be super crumbly, not mushy or doughy. Then add in 1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract and 1 cup of the frosting and mix well until a dough forms. Then roll the dough into balls and set in the fridge for an hour. 
  • Melt the white chocolate and regular chocolate. Dip the cake balls into the chocolate and set on a tray with parchment paper. Top with some crushed candy canes and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes - 1 hour. 
  • Serve and enjoy!!
