Red Velvet Truffles

/

I'm trying really hard to be proactive this year, especially when it comes to blogging so when it was nearing the end of January and I was looking around on Pinterest, a few Valentine's Day recipes caught my eye. It was immediately decided that I was going to make multiple recipes before Valentine's day and share them with you.



If you're familiar with my track record of sharing holiday recipes after the actual holiday, you should know how impressive this is for me.

This truffle recipes is also really easy to make so if you're looking for something you can easily pull together for the holiday, I would highly suggest taking a look at these.

Ingredients:
    • 1 box red velvet cake mix 
    • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
    • 8 oz. white almond bark
    • assorted festive sprinkles 
Directions:
1. Prepare cake according to package directions. Bake in a 9x13 baking dish and let cool. 
2. Add the cream cheese to the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attached affixed and beat for 1 minute or until smooth. 
3. Crumble up the cooled cake and add to the bowl of the stand mixer. Beat on low speed until all of the cream cheese is incorporated into the cake. 
4. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Scoop out tablespoon sized balls of the mixture and roll into a ball. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with all of the cake mixture. 
5. Refrigerate for 1 hour. 
6. Place the white almond bark in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring each time until it's melted and smooth. 
7. Use two forks to drop the chilled ball into the chocolate and turn to coat. Allow any excess chocolate coating to drip off, then place back onto the wax lined baking sheet. Top with various festive sprinkles. 
8. If not serving immediately, return to the refrigerator for 30 minutes to ensure the almond bark has cooled before transferring the truffles into a container. Truffles can be placed on top of each other if there is a wax lining between each layer of truffles. 


I had Tom take these into work and he said that his coworkers pretty much inhaled them within a few hours. I think that says more than enough about these tasty little treats, huh?
