A cake batter flavored cookie dough bar covered with melted chocolate truffle.


For the Cookie Dough:

  • 1 C Unsalted butter (2 sticks), softened
  • 3/4 C Light brown sugar
  • 1 C Granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 C All-purpose flour
  • 1 C Yellow cake mix (dry)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp Butter extract
  • 3 tbsp Milk
  • 1/2 C Mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 C Sprinkles

For the Truffle:

  • 12 oz Dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 C Heavy Cream
  • 1/4 C Sprinkles


For the Cookie Dough:

  1. Allow butter to come to room temperature.
  2. Combine butter and both sugars in a medium-sized bowl. Mix with a handheld mixer until smooth. All chunks of sugar and butter should be broken up.
  3. Add flour, dry cake mix and salt. Mix just until combined. Mixture will be crumbly.
  4. Add vanilla and butter extract and milk. Mix until dough is soft. Add chocolate chips and sprinkles last.
  5. Line a 9×9” pan with parchment paper, over the top edge. Empty the cookie dough into the pan and gently press dough into the pan with your fingers.

For the Truffle:

  1. In a microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate chips with heavy cream. Microwave on high for 60 seconds. Remove bowl from microwave (careful, it’s hot!). Whisk together until chocolate starts to melt.
  2. Return it to the microwave for another 30 seconds. Remove and whisk until smooth.
  3. Pour melted chocolate over top of cookie dough. Top with additional sprinkles.
  4. Leave on the counter for at least 30 minutes to allow the chocolate to cool then refrigerate until firm.
  5. Remove from refrigerator 20 minutes before serving. Lift parchment paper out of pan and cut bars into squares.
