Red Velvet Cake Balls

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

For Mother’s Day this year, I decided to make a gift from the kitchen. I had seen this recipe for red velvet cake balls at mykitchencafe.blogspot.com. She actually got the recipe from Bakerella. I decided to give those a try. Personally these cake balls were average in taste to me, but my oldest son loved it and wants them for his birthday.

I think one trick for these is to put them in the freezer before you dip them. For Father’s Day, I am going to make Oreo truffles. I’ll post that recipe on here after Father’s Day.

These cake balls begin by making a cake from a box mix. Just get a red velvet cake and make it according to the package directions. Once the cake is cooked and cooled, you crumble it and mix it with a container of cream cheese frosting. I think I may have like these better if they were made with homemade cream cheese frosting, rather than frosting from a can. It turns into a soft truffle filling. Last thing to do is to coat the cake balls in almond bark. I also used some pink candy melts to drizzle over the top.

Ingredients
  

  • 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

Instructions
 

  • After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
  • 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.)
  • Roll mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet.
  • Chill for several hours - make sure they are really firm. (You can speed this up by putting in the freezer.)
  • Melt chocolate in microwave per directions on package.
  • 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 - two forks also works great if your chocolate is warm enough.)
  • Drizzle with extra chocolate bark (I used melted pink chocolate)

  2. I just attempted these for Christmas tins and I agree they were average tasting, my children and husband thought so as well. I think I will try the oreo balls next.

  3. Oooh, I love the pink chocolate drizzles. I agree on the taste – I actually didn’t love how they tasted but they make a stunning presentation (and my husband and kids loved how they tasted so to each his own, I guess). I just made the oreo truffles last night again – and oh, talk about great taste! I could eat that entire batch! I can’t wait to see how yours turn out.
