The red velvet cake ball just seemed like it was hard to mike since it tastes so good.
These Are Really Good Red Velvet Cake Balls
Red Velvet Cake Balls, and really most other cake balls, are not that hard to make.
The truth is that these Red Velvet Cake Balls are really easy to make. They are also tasty and impressive treats.
It really is all about the cheat.
And by cheat, I mean, there really is not a whole lot that you need to do to make this.
Cake balls really are just bite sized pieces of cake that are dipped some kind of frosting or chocolate .
Sometimes, cake balls are are also decorated with sprinkles, nuts, or even melted chocolate. Can you say yum???
Those cake pops that we love are really just cake balls.
Cake balls that someone has stuck a stick into and then dipped into chocolate. We love cake balls on a stick because they are so easy to eat. Plus, these tiny bites of cake kinds of limit just how much cake we are going to consume in that one sitting...if you know what I mean.
What I like about cake balls, on a stick or otherwise, is that they make such a cool presentation.
Put some cake pops into a pot or stick into some foam (or both together) and you have a cute gift for someone. Tie a bow around a stick and give cake pops out at a party or wedding.
Or simply place your cake balls onto a plate or dish and look at them for thirty seconds while you contemplate which one you will bite into. #guilty.
Here is how to make Red Velvet Cake Balls
Here is what you will need to make Red Velvet Cake Balls
Red Velvet Cake Balls are so easy to make and so good to eat!
- 1 Box- Red Velvet Cake Mix- prepared as directed on box
- 1 16 ounce container or equivelent homemade- Cake Frosting- flavor of choice
- About 2 pounds Chocolate bark or candy coating of choice-
- As Needed- Optional sprinkles etc
- Optional Candy such as chocolate kisses to put into the center of the ball...yum..
- Prepare the cake mix as directed on the box. Allow to cool entirely
- When cake has cooled, divide the cake in quarters to make it easy to work with. Place each quarter into a large bowl or work with one bowl, using one quarter of cake at a time.
- Crumble up the cake by hand in the bowl. Yes, crumble it up...
- You will only need about 3/4 of the container of frosting to make this. Remove 1/4th of the container and set aside.
- Now add equal amounts of frosting to each bowl. You will most likely need to get your hands dirty with the mix (oh no!-right?). When your mixture is ready to roll into balls, you can roll balls to about 1 to 1 1/2 balls. Set each ball on wax paper that is on a baking pan (use a couple of waxed paper covered pans for ease) after you have rolled them out and as you continue working.
- Freeze your formed balls for at least an hour.
- When you are ready to finish your balls, remove the first tray of them from the freezer.
- Have the chocolate or whatever kind of topping you have chosen melted as per directions on the bag. I usually use the microwave method as it is easy to make and easy to clean up
- Using two forks, roll each fork around in the melted chocolate until covered and then place the ball back on the waxed paper tray.
- Before the chocolate fully hardens, add any sprinkles or toppings
- When your first tray is completed, place it into the refrigerator and then repeat with the second tray.
Prep time: Cook time: Total time: Yield: About 50 cake balls
Wanting to make cake pops out of these?
Use cake pop sticks instead of the forks to coat these.
