A few years ago, a good friend of mine brought red velvet cake balls to our New Years Eve party. They were a total hit. I asked her how she made them and she began to tell me, but they seemed pretty labor intensive. My baking skills are pretty basic and my time is extremely limited, so I quickly decided it wasn’t the recipe for me.
Fast forward to two weeks ago, when I saw this recipe for red velvet cake balls on one of my favorite recipe websites, Gooseberry Patch. Lately, I’ve been sticking to fall recipes, but I just couldn’t wait to try this one.
What you will need:
1 box red velvet cake mix & the ingredients listed on that box
1 container cream cheese frosting
melting chocolate (regular or white)
Step 1 – Make cake mix as instructed on package in a 13×9 pan. Take out of the oven and cool.
Step 2 – Crumble cooled cake into a large bowl and stir in cream cheese frosting.
Step 3 – Roll the mixture into balls and place on a cookie sheet. The recipe says they should be the size of quarters, but mine were a little bit bigger. Put the cookie sheet in the fridge and chill the cake balls for several hours or over night.
Step 4 – Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Dip/drop the cake balls in the melted chocolate and make sure they are completely covered with chocolate. Once coated with chocolate, place on wax paper, and wait until the chocolate firms up. I put mine back in the fridge for about an hour.
These are amazing! I brought a few to work with me on Friday, and every person who tried them loved them. I then brought a couple of extras to my daughters’ daycare when I picked them up and got the same reaction. Definitely try these if you get the chance! Plus, a few of these in a cute tin from the dollar section at Target would be a great holiday gift.
