Red Velvet Cake Balls

Red Velvet Cake Balls

Are you making Christmas or Valentine treats for someone special?  Well, put these on the  Tippy Top of your list. OH! MY! GOSH!  These are amazing beyond  belief .  I made these totally from scratch but you can easily make them with a cake made from a box and a tub of premade cream cheese frosting. They were so flippin delicious I would encourage you to try it from scratch too, if at all possible.  I made the cake and frosting the day before I formed the cake balls and did the dipping. I liked how this worked out time wise. Honestly, I don’t think I would have enjoyed making them as much if I ‘d jammed it all into one day.  The rolling and dipping is fairly time consuming, although pretty simple. This would be a great project to make with kids!  Can you say Hello teachers gifts!
