When I think of Valentine’s day treats, I think of chocolate or red velvet. What’s better for celebrating Valentine’s day with your loved one than a delicious treat to share. And of course chocolate, cause I mean, its chocolate – and red velvet is nice and red and Valentine like, right? These red velvet cake balls would make a perfect Valentine’s day treat!
These cake balls are super easy to make too. You just need to bake up a red velvet cake, mix it with a delicious cream cheese frosting, roll into little balls and dip in white chocolate. I used homemade cream cheese frosting cause its amazing, but you could use some from the store too. And I just used a box mix red velvet cake.
