Red Velvet Cake Balls


I got this idea from Bakerella.. I saw that they were red velvet and just had to try them. I pretty much love anything red velvet.. or anything chocolate, for that matter. So what better idea than to roll the red velvet in chocolate??! And let me tell you, they are pretty much amazing. If you don't want red velvet, there are other cake/frosting combinations you can try.

1 box red velvet cake mix
1 container of cream cheese frosting (16 oz)
1 package chocolate almond bark (regular or white chocolate, whatever your preference)
Wax paper

First, bake the cake according to the directions on the box, using a 13x9 cake pan. After the cake is done, let it cool completely and then crumble it into a large bowl. Mix it with the container of cream cheese frosting - I used my hands for this, it's messy but much easier to get it thoroughly mixed!

Next, hand roll the cake/frosting mixture into little balls.. about quarter-sized or a little bigger.. and lay them on a cookie sheet. My batch made about 55. Then put them in the fridge for several hours (I left mine in over night because I had to go to work, and I work late) or you can put them in the freezer to speed up the process. You want them to get a little firm so they don't fall apart when you roll them in the chocolate. After they're nice and firm, melt the chocolate in the microwave (or you can use a double boiler, but I prefer the microwave, directions are on the package) and roll the balls in chocolate and lay them on wax paper until the chocolate coating has dried and hardened. I used a spoon to dip and roll them in the chocolate, then tapped the spoon against the side of the bowl to get the extra off. Also, when using the almond bark, I only melted a couple blocks at a time because it thickens fast. It's just easier to use when it's hot.

I think they are delicious and they would be fun to take to a party or get-together... enjoy!
