Red velvet cake balls

Red velvet cake balls

1 box of red velvet cake mix
1 (16 oz.) container of cream cheese frosting
6 oz. of white or chocolate baking chocolate

Prepare the cake mix according to the directions on the box. When the cake is finished baking allow to cool completely.

Crumble the cake into a large bowl using a mixer. Add the frosting and mix until
well combined. and place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours.

Line a baking tray with wax paper. Use a melon baller as a scooper to form balls with the cake mixture. Place on wax paper. Once you have used all the cake mixture, place the baking tray in the freezer for 2 hours.

Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl, in the microwave stirring every 5-10 seconds until smooth. Remove the balls from the freezer. Using one toothpick, pick up
the balls, dip in the chocolate and use a second toothpick to slide the ball off the
toothpick, on to the wax paper. ( if the balls fall off the toothpick into the chocolate, they are not firm enough and you need to put them back into the freezer).

Once you have covered all the balls in chocolate place the tray in the frig.
If you want to put sprinkles or decorations on them do so after you dip them.
If the cake crumbs come off in the chocolate, when dipping, let them dry and redip.
