Cake Balls




If there is one thing I'm known for it would have to be cake balls! I first learned how to make cake balls from http://www.bakerella.com/.  So, as one of my first post I would like to share the recipe from this site for Red Velvet Cakeballs. Enjoy...
 Red Velvet Cake Balls

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.

  1. They look great! I made these before but they took forever and weren't sticking together well so I don't think I will be making these any time soon. haha

  2. Allison,

    Here are a few little secrets to make these fast and easy. After I bake cake I crumble only half the cake then add half can of icing; then follow with the other half. I use a pampered chef small scooper (the make the perfect size ball) and scoop onto wax paper. I freeze them for a few hours and then dip them in melted chocolate. This makes it super fast and when frozen they hold together better. Hope you will try agaiin... Happy Baking.
