Red Velvet balls
I did not have any plans for this yummy red velvet cake balls recipe! But after making these adorable Valentine mini LOVE cakes I ended up with some left over cake which I wasn’t willing to throw away because 1: I worked hard for that cake and 2: it was too pretty to part ways with like that. I thought about something simple that won’t take more than a few minutes to make so red velvet cake balls with coconut and chocolate bits came to mind. Just like that! It’s magic, I tell ya’!
I didn’t have the patience to make cake pops though; after baking for a few hours then taking photos for another hour, I just needed the simplest recipe ever. And these red velvet cake bites deliver! It literally took 5 minutes to make and they were so tasty I almost ate them all before having the chance to take any photos.
I made this red velvet cake balls recipe with red velvet cake but any cake recipe is good; you just need to add red food coloring if you want to, or just skip any food coloring and use the cake as is. I also added baking white chocolate, cut into small pieces but you can use your favorite chocolate, even milk or dark chocolate, there are no set rules.
After rolling these easy cake balls in coconut flakes I realized these would’ve made an awesome treat with a special flavor if I was gonna cover them in grounded nuts, like almonds or cashew. Well, there’s always a next time! Though if you give these options a try please let me know how they taste.
