Red Velvet Cake Balls


For Mother’s Day this year, I decided to make a gift from the kitchen. I had seen this recipe at mykitchencafe.blogspot.com (she actually got the recipe from Bakerella) and decided to give those a try. Personally these cake balls were average in taste to me, but my oldest son loved it and wants them for his birthday.
I think one trick for these is to put them in the freezer before you dip them. For Father’s Day, I am going to make oreo truffles. I’ll post that recipe on here after Father’s Day.

Red Velvet Cake Balls
 
Ingredients
  • 1 box red velvet cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
  • 1 can cream cheese frosting (16 oz.)
  • 1 package chocolate bark (regular or white chocolate)
  • wax paper
Instructions
  1. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
  2. Mix thoroughly with 1 can cream cheese frosting. (It may be easier to use fingers to mix together, but be warned it will get messy.)
  3. Roll mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet.
  4. Chill for several hours – make sure they are really firm. (You can speed this up by putting in the freezer.)
  5. Melt chocolate in microwave per directions on package.
  6. Roll balls in chocolate and lay on wax paper until firm. (Use a spoon to dip and roll in chocolate and then tap off extra – two forks also works great if your chocolate is warm enough.)
  7. Drizzle with extra chocolate bark (I used melted pink chocolate)

  • I just attempted these for Christmas tins and I agree they were average tasting, my children and husband thought so as well. I think I will try the oreo balls next.

    Blessings

  • Oooh, I love the pink chocolate drizzles. I agree on the taste – I actually didn’t love how they tasted but they make a stunning presentation (and my husband and kids loved how they tasted so to each his own, I guess). I just made the oreo truffles last night again – and oh, talk about great taste! I could eat that entire batch! I can’t wait to see how yours turn out.
