Cake Balls!

The red velvet kind… yum!

You will love this. plain and simple. And, if you don’t mind to be a tad messy, they are easy peasy!

What you’ll need:

*Red Velvet Cake (or flavor of your choice) prepared according to box directions.
*Small can of whipped Cream Cheese frosting
*Candy Coating Chocolate such as Almond Bark
*Cookie sheet lined with wax paper.

First, just get a boxed cake mix. You could really use any flavor but I chose Red Velvet. If you have kiddos or are a child at heart, funfetti could be fun! Prepare you cake according to box directions

Enjoy crafting, watching Pretty Little Liars (my newest guilty pleasure,) fold the laundry or hang out with your hubby while you let your cake cool for at least an hour.

When your cake is cooled, crumble it up in a bowl. If you edges are hard and not breaking up, don’t include them. Just pass ’em along to your hubs or little brother for a snack.

Next, dump your tub of icing in the bowl.

*I bought the large cream cheese whipped can  on sale. But you only need the small one. I saved half the frosting for something else.

Now, mix mix mix mix. Forgot to take a picture of this… sorry! But did remember a picture of my hand….

Use your hands or cookie dough scoop to form your mixture into balls and lay out on a sheet lined with wax paper.

Throw them in the freezer for another 2 hours. All you adventurous types out there… DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP. It will create disaster. Believe me, I did it once.

Once they are frozen, use a double boiler (I don’t have one so was resourceful) to melt candy coating chocolate.

Dip your cake balls in the coating and cover.Place back on baking sheet and chill another 30 minutes or so.
