We Made Cake Balls!

We are making Red Velvet Cake Balls today!  These are incredibly addictive.   They are very popular now and you can get them from just about any bakery but imagine the fun of making them yourself!  YES!

Red Velvet Cake Balls with White Icing

Red Velvet Cake Balls
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
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. (Should make 45-50. You can get even more if you use a mini ice cream scooper, I used a cookie scoop, less messy.)
4. Chill for several hours. (You can speed this up by putting in the freezer.)
                DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!  It will be easier to dip in the chocolate.
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.)
I also only melt a few pieces of chocolate bark at a time because it starts to cool and thicken. It’s easier to work with when it’s hot. This recipe is originally from Bakerella.com.  A luxury dessert blog. =)

Roll into sweet little balls about the size of a Ping Pong Ball   =)
Yummy!!!!  Be careful because you may eat half of these before you can get them to the fridge.  
Bon Appetite!
