red velvet cake bites

(naked cake balls .... what a way to start an entry, right? Talking about naked balls, LOL).

naked cake balls

Finished product:

red velvet cake balls

1 box red velvet cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
1 can cream cheese frosting (16 oz.)
1 package chocolate bark (regular or white chocolate)
wax paper

1. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.

2. Mix thoroughly with 1 can cream cheese frosting. (It may be easier to use fingers to mix together, but be warned it will get messy.)

3. Roll mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50.)

4. Chill for several hours. (You can speed this up by putting them in the freezer.)

5. Melt chocolate in microwave per directions on package.

6. Roll balls in chocolate and lay on wax paper until firm. (Use a spoon to dip and roll in chocolate and then tap off extra.)

I originally got the recipe HERE.

I forwarded your Red Velvet Cake Bites recipe on to Charlotte, my baker friend. Herewith are her comments:

The bottom line is YUM!! However, I did learn a trick (but too late) that you shouldn't melt your chocolate bark all at once because it starts setting up before you get everything covered. The last of the batch didn't look as good as the first of the batch. Plus, I ran out of bark and Matt had to go get more. You can re-melt it, but after a couple of times, it starts "baking" itself (not good). So, I have some more to cover with the new bark.

So ... status report? Easy enough, a little tedious and you need to know the secret of the bark ... but the look on Matt's face said it all ... YUM, YUM. So, the recipe is a keeper!!
