A Sweet Treat for Your Valentine

I'm trying to get a head start on the recipes for Valentine's Day. Here is one of my favorite little bite size desserts. These little balls are very versatile, my favorite are Red Velvet Cake and Oreo.

Use you favorite box cake mix and bake the cake according to the box. Once the cake is cooled crumble the cake and add in your favorite icing.

For Red Velvet I recommend Cream Cheese Frosting. Once that is combined, roll mixture into small balls and freeze.

While the balls are in the freezer melt Almond Bark or other white chocolate baking chocolate. I use white chocolate for both Red Velvet and oreo.

For the Oreo balls, crush the oreos in a bag. For this one you will need 8 oz of Cream cheese. Once the cookies are crushed, add the cream cheese, mix and roll these into balls and freeze. Once in the freezer melt your Almond bark and dip the balls and set aside to let them harden.

These are a wonderful treat for any occasion! Isaac took these this past Christmas as gifts for my family. They were a bigger hit than any of the other gifts! Try these out and use your favorite cake.

Other suggestions are Funfetti or German Chocolate. Happy cooking!
