Beat the 'Winter Blues' Recipe Exchange

Today I am also joining Michelle of Pretty Mommy in her "Winter Blues Recipe Exchange." The theme of this exchange is Light, Fresh, and Colorful! (Anything to help us get through the winter blues.) 

Today is also the kickoff to my birthday weekend; and it is currently freezing in Southern California. What a perfect day to to share the most delicious birthday cake ball recipe from The Bakerella

*My brother Barrett is a chef at Momofuku in NYC and sent these, most-amazing-thing-I-have-ever-put-in-my-mouth, Birthday Cake Truffles from the Momofuku Milk Bar. Love you B!

Birthday Cake Balls

The Bakerella uses red velvet cake mix for this recipe; but you can use any cake mix.  

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. You can get even more if you use a mini ice cream scooper, but I like to hand roll them.)
4. Chill for several hours. (You can speed this up by putting in the freezer.)
5. Melt chocolate in microwave or stove 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.)



  1. OMG those look like HEAVEN!!! I absolutely LOVE red velvet cake....the next time you make those I might just have to drop by ;)

  2. My oh my, that looks AMAZING!!! Love red velvet cake! Have a wonderful birthday (weekend)!

  3. These look delicious! I keep seeing them but somehow I've yet to make them. Soon, perhaps for the dessert party I'm throwing on Thursday night.
