I made these cake bites for a friend’s birthday last week. I got this recipe several years ago from one of my friends at LSU. In the past, I had only made it with chocolate cake and chocolate frosting, but decided to switch things up this time. My friend likes red velvet cake, so I thought I’d try the same recipe but with red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting instead. This is a quick and easy recipe and great to bring as a dessert to parties or to give as a gift.
- 1 box red velvet cake mix (cook as directed on box for 9×13 cake)
- 1 can Cream cheese frosting
- White Chocolate baking squares
- Semi-sweet baking squares
1. Prepare cake according to directions on back of box. Once cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into a large bowl.
2. Mix with 1 can cream cheese frosting. I suggest using your hands to ensure that you mix it thoroughly. (Warning: this can be very messy, but you’ll get to lick your fingers once done mixing. Just make sure to wash your hands afterwards.) Refrigerate mixture for 15 minutes.
3. Roll mixture into balls and lay on cookie sheet. I made these larger than usual, due to time constraints, but usually make them about quarter size.
4. Chill for 30 minutes in freezer.
5. Melt white chocolate in microwave according to directions on package.
6. Roll cake balls in white chocolate with spoon and lay on baking sheet until firm.
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 with semi-sweet chocolate.
As I said earlier, you can basically make this same recipe with any combination of cake mix/frosting and then coat with any type of baking chocolate.
