  • Cake Mix- You will need to use a confetti cake mix for this recipe.
  • Butter- Use unsalted butter to control the amount of salt in the recipe.
  • Sugar- Every great dessert uses sugar in the recipe.
  • Flour- You can use all-purpose flour for the best results.
  • Vanilla- Use pure vanilla for the best results.
  • Sprinkles- Use Valentines Day and Heart-Shaped sprinkles for this recipe.
  • Melting Chocolate- I like to use white and milk chocolate when making these cake balls.

How to Make Red Velvet Cake Balls

Put the cake mix, sugar, flour, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.

Slice your butter into cubes and place it into the large bowl with the cake mix.

Mix the ingredients using your fingers or a fork to form into a dough.

Mix in the Confetti sprinkles.

Scoop the dough into your hands using a small ice cream scooper and roll it into a ball.

Continue that step until all the rest of the dough is used.

Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler.

Dip your rolled dough into the melted chocolate.

Make sure the dough ball is completely coated using a fork and put onto a cookie sheet.

Sprinkle some of the Heart-Shaped Confetti on top of the melted chocolate before it hardens.

Continue this step until all the dough balls are used.

Serve and Enjoy!

Can I Dip These in Different Chocolates?

You can use other chocolates to coat the outside. Sometimes I make it with a milk chocolate coating in order to give it a different flavor. You can also use dark chocolate if you choose.

Do Cake Balls Need Refrigeration?

This Red velvet cake balls will not need to be placed in the fridge. If this recipe were to use cream cheese to hold the ingredients together then, it would have needed to be placed in the fridge. Storing your recipe in the fridge will however last longer.

this recipe was very good, I made some for my teacher for her birthday and she loved it and shared it with a lot of people and they all loved the cake balls and asked me for more XD the only problem was it says to mix the cake mix, flour, sugar, butter, and vanilla together but when I did that it wasn’t a cookie dough texture like it was supposed to be, it was very dry. I looked the recipe over again and again and was freaking out cause I didn’t know what I did wrong and why it was so dry and crumbly. Then I thought maybe I could add just a bit of water…………… and BAM! that did the trick and the dough was a cookie dough texture!! so jill, your recipe was awesome and I loved it, it was very fast and easy and DELICIOUS :b but please add in the recipe to add a little bit of water before you form it into balls.

Thanks for reading this review!!!5 stars
