Dessert I am making for tonight *updated with some finished cake balls!!*

RED VELVET CAKE BALLS

Ok, I found this recipe here. (BTW, you need to check out her whole site.....LOTS of yummy stuff there!!) I tweaked the recipe somewhat. Instead of cream cheese icing, I used Betty Crocker Whipped Cream whipped icing. I also am going to use Hershey Milk Chocolate to coat the cake balls with instead of chocolate bark.

First, I got the cake batter mixed up, poured and ready to bake:


After being in the oven for 35 minutes:



Once it cooled, I broke it up into a large bowl:



Then I added the icing:



After being all mixed up: (I mixed it up by hand, which is the easiest way...but it is super messy!)



Rolled into balls: (I got 60 cake balls!)



I stuck them in the freezer for about an hour, but haven't had a chance to roll them in chocolate yet. Tyler LOVES them just like they are, though!!!! Once I get pics of them rolled in chocolate i'll post them. :)

Ok, I ran out of chocolate so I didn't get to do all of the cake balls but here are what the finished balls look like. (they may not look pretty, but they sure are yummy...you can see where I took one from!!!!!!!)



Before I make them again I need to learn how to apply the chocolate better.....LOL If anyone out there tries this, PLEASE let me know!!!!!

Ooh, I made it back and yum! I'm not a fan of red velvet cake, but everyone else in the house is, but I bet I could tweak that with another flavor. OOOOHHH!!!! :)

Patrice, you can use any kind of cake you want!!! I was never a fan of red velvet cake, but I love the Betty Crocker red velvet cake mix......especially with whipped cream icing!!!
