Red Velvet Cake Balls

After a long time  I am here, I was busy with some personal  issues. Today I am going to share Cake Balls.It’s a pretty easy process and I promise you wont regret it . First you have to  bake any cake ( I baked red velvet cake as it is  my daughter's favourite ). Then  let it cool and crumb it into tiny pieces, Mixed it with the butter ,powdered  or icing sugar and cream cheese and  then form into balls. After forming the balls refrigerate  them and then dip them in melted chocolate.

If you have any leftover  cake in fridge then you can make these cake balls also using these leftover  cake.I prefer to call it disaster  relief  cake as when my cake does not turn out well, I love to make these super delicious  cake balls  using those messy cake.

Butter (softened )-1/2 cup
Vanilla essence - few drops
Powdered sugar  or Icing sugar-3/4cup
Cooking  chocolate -1cup (I don't  have dark chocolate  so I used pink chocolate, if you want you can use dark chocolate )
Colourfull Sprinkles-1/2cup (optional )


Remove cream cheese from fridge.

In a medium bowl pour the cream cheese, butter,sugar and vanilla. Mix with whisk for 2-3 minutes until the mixture begins to solidify and does not have any more lumps. Set aside.

Crumb the cooled cake into tiny pieces . Pour the cream cheese butter mixture on the crumb cake and mix together with a spoon or spatula until everything is well combined.

Line a tray with wax paper or  or foil. With a spoon take small portion of mixture and make  1 inch balls by hand. After all the balls are formed,cover the tray with plastic wrap and   place in the freezer for 15 minutes.

While the balls are in the freezer melt the chocolate in the microwave  in 30 second increments, stirring between increments, until smooth. Remove the balls from the freezer and dip each ball into the chocolate mixture and place on pan.Spread sprinkles  on top of the cake balls and keep them in refrigerator  for 30 minutes.Afrer that  take out from refrigerator  and enjoy.

1)If you want to melt chocolate  on gas stove,then follow  this step.

Bring about an inch of water to a simmer in your saucepan. Set the heatproof bowl in the mouth of the pot, making sure the water doesn't touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir chocolate occasionally as it softens. When you have just a few small unmelted chunks, remove bowl from heat and stir with fork.

2) If you do not have cream  cheese  at home then you can use 3/4 cup butter instead of (1/2 butter+ 1/2cup cream cheese )
