Now I usually post about fashion and arty type bits, but they certainly look good, so i'd consider them an exception. The image above is courtesy of Bakerella... www.bakerella.com (the baker extraodinaire who brought us Cakepops). This website is just amazing and makes me so so hungry! Her book, Cakepops, google it, has recently been published, and everything in it looks INCREDIBLE.
These Red Velvet Cake Pops seem quite simple to make, and after discovering Red Velvet Cake on 'Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives' i am dying to make them. Here's the recipe from the site...
Red Velvet Cake Balls
1 box red velvet cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
1 can cream cheese frosting (16 oz.)
1 package chocolate bark (regular or white chocolate)
1. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
2. Mix thoroughly with 1 can cream cheese frosting. (It may be easier to use fingers to mix together, but be warned it will get messy.)
3. Roll mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50. You can get even more if you use a mini ice cream scooper, but I like to hand roll them.)
4. Chill for several hours. (You can speed this up by putting in the freezer.)
5. Melt chocolate in microwave per directions on package.
6. Roll balls in chocolate and lay on wax paper until firm. (Use a spoon to dip and roll in chocolate and then tap off extra.
I'm pretty sure in the UK that Betty Crocker will have the ingredients needed... but for the chocolate bark im going to settle with a Dairy Milk melted over hot water. EVEN BETTER!
