Red Velvet Cake Balls

So I'm back home for Christmas and my father is on a big cake ball kick. For good reason, mind you. They are quick and easy to make, they look adorable, and they taste wonderful. These are quite festive, I think, and perfect for Christmas.

Which, by the way, I should mention that my Christmas baking is going to stretch well into January. Making up for lost time!

1box Red Velvet Cake Mix
18oz Cream Cheese Icing 
Chocolate Dipping Chocolate

1. Bake the cake according to the instructions on the back of the box, then set aside until completely cooled.

2. Take the cooled cake and crumble it up into a large bowl.

3. Microwave the icing for about 45 seconds or until it is runny. 

4. Pour the icing onto the cake and mix it all together until combined. 

5. With a cookie scoop, scoop out the cake mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and place in the freezer for about fifteen minutes. 

6. After the balls have hardened a little, reshape them with your hands so they're nice and round. Return to the freezer for five to ten minutes. 

7. Melt your chocolate in a large glass bowl and then dip the cake balls in, allowing the excess to drip off. Replace the ball onto the parchment paper. Repeat. 

8. Drizzle colored chocolate or top with sprinkles if desired. 

9. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge or in a cool place.
