Cake Balls

I have been meaning to post this recipe for a couple of months but never had any pics. They are similar to Annalisa's mini cupcakes. Another dangerously delectable dessert!

1 package Red Velvet cake mix
1/2 or 1 container (16 oz.) prepared cream cheese frosting
Melting chocolate (brown and/or white)


1. Prepare cake mix according to directions and bake in 9x13 pan. When cake is done, let cool for 30 minutes and trim all four edges of cake off. Crumble into a large bowl. Soften frosting in microwave for 25 seconds, and stir into cake until well blended. (If you have a Bosch or Kitchenaid, do it in there!) Chill at least 1 hour or overnight, if desired.

2. Using cookie scoop or melon baller, make balls and place on waxed paper on cookie sheets. (I like to just roll them out myself.) Put cookie sheets in freezer for one hour.

3. Melt chocolate in the bag or a glass bowl in microwave. Use a wooden skewer, an egg separator or an Easter egg dipper to dip balls in chocolate. (I just use a teaspoon) Place on cake rack over waxed paper to drip & cool. Decorate the balls by drizzling the other color of chocolate over the balls, or roll in nuts, sprinkles, or coconut. Get creative!
