12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GOODIES: Red Velvet Cake Balls

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GOODIES BLOG HOP PARTY


I have to say these cake balls are the most delicious little treat that I have ever had (or made)! I found this recipe last year on a friends facebook post. And of course I thought "cake balls" what the heck is a cake ball? I immediately went out to the store and purchased everything to make them (as you can see all you need is 3 ingredients) and I thought how easy. It was Christmas time and I knew I just had to make some and include them in my treat boxes. Of course they became my number one requested treat of last year and I know I made at least 10 batches (if not more). I now stock up on Red Velvet Cake Mixes when they are 99 cents! I would say they were just a wee-bit popular.

Now, I am not sure if this recipe came from Bakerella or not (and I don't want to leave any credit out where credit is due). I now know that this is how she makes her cake pops (which of course I have the cookbook now and they are OH SO CUTE!), but I had never ever heard of Bakerella until I started blogging in September 2010 and this recipe was shared with me long before that. I have tried this recipe with a strawberry cake mix and a vanilla cake mix and I do NOT like them, and neither does my family. We ONLY like the Red Velvet Cake Balls (I am sure it's just personal preference, but in my house we only make these with Red Velvet Cake!) J

Red Velvet Cake Balls
from a facebook friend of a friend

1 box Red Velvet Cake (cook as directed on box in a 9x13 pan)
1 can cream cheese frosting
2 pkg White or Chocolate Bark (or melting chocolate from a cake store)

Make sure cake is completely cooled. Crumble into a large bowl and mix in frosting. Roll into quarter size balls (it's easier to use a small melon scoop); place on wax paper and then freeze for at least 3 hours. (I freeze overnight) Melt chocolate (a little at a time). Roll cake balls into white chocolate (use a spoon for less mess); and place back on wax paper. (I like to use sprinkles too)
