Red Velvet Cake Balls

Red Velvet Cake Balls

I first tasted these two years ago at a Christmas party and immediately had to have the recipe. It’s based on a mix, but I imagine you can follow the same directions substituting from scratch cake and frosting (I’ll try that one day). You can also try it with other cake combinations.

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, but I like to hand roll them.)
4. Chill for several hours. (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.)

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.

Want to see how good they look in white chocolate?

I want to add rum to the cake truffles however I see you constantly say no water. Would it be best to add the rum to the cake prior to baking it and if so should I substitute rum for water since all the alcohol Will burn off but not the flavor? And or can I add the rum in a small amount to the finished cake product? Thanks.

I don’t have a 13×9 inch pan. Could I use two 9 inch pans?

While they turned out to look like a “Pinterest Nailed It” type picture as I’ve never done something like this before, they were tasty. I misread cream cheese frosting and got cream cheese, but cream cheese frosting is pretty simple to make.

Also tried melting chocolate chips for coating and that was WAY too thick to work with. Baker’s Chocolate was MUCH easier.

Kk I made these just earlier will post a picture. They are very easy to make plus I made truffles and cake pops to the only thing I find difficult is coating them in the melted chocolate and getting any sprinkles on in time but I guess you learn with practice ???? but it still turned out to be a great gift I put them in a terquois donut box with great orange accents and put 4 truffle style into small colorful Chinese take out container as a couple of small gifts thanks for the recipe!

Random question…is it okay to put food coloring in the almond bark to make the outside a little more festive for whatever event these are prepared for? Can’t wait to make these!!!!
