Yes I know — I used Cake Balls and Fancy Dessert in the same title... but it's true! Cake Balls or Cake Pops (if you choose to add some sticks) are not just for the kids. Especially when you make them as decadent as these Red Velvet ones.
Simply mix your cake batter.
Bake your cake.
Cool your cake.
Then break it apart into a large bowl.
Add your icing.
Shape into balls.
Melt your chocolate.
Cover your cake balls in chocolate.
1 package Red Velvet Cake Mix (I used President's Choice and it was soooo good!)
1 container (450g) of vanilla icing
2 cups chocolate chips or 8 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate (I used President's Choice Milk Chocolate Chips — because yum — and semi-sweet just for fun)
Mix and bake Red Velvet Cake as per package instructions.
When cake is completely cool, break into small pieces and place in large bowl.
Add icing and stir until combined (you may need to use your hands for this part).
Roll cake into 1 1/2-inch balls and place on baking sheet lined with wax paper. Cool in fridge for 1-2 hours or in freezer for 15-20 minutes.
Melt chocolate (TIP: I prefer to do in 2 batches. I set my microwave to 50%, heat for 1 min. then stir, then heat for another 20-30 seconds and then stir any remaining pieces until all is melted and smooth).
Dip each cake ball into chocolate and cover. Then place back on wax paper. Repeat until all cake balls are covered in chocolate.
Put your cake balls back in the fridge until hardened then enjoy or freeze for later!
