Strawberry Brownie Truffles
Kick off football championship with fudgy chocolate brownie truffles stuffed with strawberry flavor. Theses fun truffles are shaped into footballs and coated in a milk chocolate layer.
I love football, like love it a lot. It may be for all the wrong reasons, too and I’m alright with that. However, once football season starts, we’re hosting get-togethers with friends because we love to be social. Even though I may not be watching the game all the time, I’m still cheering on the team while I snack on appetizers during the game.
While the guys are glued to the television, us girls are usually in the kitchen eating dip while making a sweet treat. However, with championship just days away, I’ll have the food ready because after all, I do love a good game final.
While planning the perfect Game Day party, I’ve discovered that easy prep dishes and desserts are the most valuable thing for me. Since I’ll be making dessert for a crowd, I’m stocking up on Pillsbury™ baking mixes at Walmart® to help me get creative in the kitchen.
What I love about these mixes is that there are many ways to adapt recipes and make new desserts with the help of the box. They are incredibly low cost and the internet is full of ideas on how to use them. Instead of spending the day in the kitchen, I’ve cut down the time and cost by stocking up on boxed mixes.
I grew up baking with my mom and sister in the kitchen. Mom would pull up a stool for us to stand on and let us add the flour to cookie dough or pour in the sugar. We made a mess but it was essential in learning how to bake. She’d let us lick the mixer paddle and it truly was enough to create memories for a lifetime. Now days, I like to pass on that same tradition whether it be with family or friends. Getting the family together to bake over the weekend creates both memories and strong bonds. It’s something I like to do in our house and making a fun recipe like this is best to do with others.
These brownies are incredibly delicious. They have all the real flavors of strawberries, cream cheese and heavenly brownies. Since 1 box makes a large enough batch Game Day truffles, I’ll be sending a few of them with hubby to work and giving the extra to friends. I just love being able to give extras to our friends since I know all of them won’t be able to make it over for the big game.
Making these brownie truffles couldn’t be any easier. It all starts with Pillsbury™ Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix. Bake the brownies according to package directions.
Once done baking scrape out all the brownies and place them into a large bowl. Pour in a container of Pillsbury™ Creamy Supreme Strawberry Frosting and mix it on medium speed until it’s all combined and a dough has formed.
Use a cookie scoop to scoop dough and then roll it into balls. Press on the center lightly then pinch the edges of the ball to form a football. Combine powdered sugar and cream cheese frosting. Scoop into a pastry bag and pipe the white football imprint on it.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and we’re whipping up some delicious treats to celebrate the day. Come back and see what I’ll be making on February 8th.

Strawberry Brownie Truffles
- 1 box Pillsbury™ Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup water
- 2/3 cup oil
- 1 jar Pillsbury™ Creamy Supreme Strawberry Frosting
- 2 cups milk chocolate coating chips
- 1 cup Pillsbury™ Creamy Supreme Cream Cheese Frosting
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish, set aside. Combine Pillsbury™ brownie mix with eggs, water and oil and bake according to package directions. Once brownies have cooled, combine with 1 jar Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Strawberry Frosting and beat in a stand mixer with paddle attachment. The dough should be completely mixed well and start to form a big dough ball. Using a 1 1/2 inch cookie scope, scope balls and roll. To form into footballs, make a slight imprint in the center of the ball to push it down. Pinch the dough at the corners and shape into footballs. Freeze for about 1 hour on parchment paper in the freezer.
- Melt 2 cups milk chocolate chips in the microwave on for about 7 minutes on power level 4. Stir chips until silky smooth and melted. Place the football dough on the end of a fork (just sitting on top) then use a spoon to scoop melted chocolate over the top and allow chocolate to drip off then place on a cookie sheet. Repeat until done.
- For the white frosting on top, combine cream cheese frosting and powdered sugar. Fold everything together, pressing the powder into the frosting to combine well. If mixture is too tough, mix in some water. Fill a piping bag or zip lock bag with the mixture then cut the tip off and make a football design.
