Red Velvet Valentine Truffles 

These little cuties are perfect for any Valentine’s Day party or just handing them out to those special people in your life that mean the most. They’re super easy to make and totally kid friendly. Now, you don’t have to over pay for those big gigantic boxes of chocolates, when you can literally make these for a fraction of what you would pay in the stores. Wicked cute and wicked GOOD!!! 

1 box Red Velvet cake mix 
1 8oz container of softened cream cheese at room temp
2 bags White Chocolate chips
Colored candy or sprinkles for garnish

Make cake mix as directed (Note:I always add “hot” water to any boxed “chocolate” cake mix instead of using cold, this step really helps bring the chocolate to life in the cake mix. When cake is done, cool the cake completely. Once cake has cooled, crumble cake into fine pieces into a large bowl. Fold in cream cheese ( I usually just use my hands using latex gloves to mix cake pieces and cream cheese) mix till cream cheese is fully incorporated.  
Once combined, take mixture and start forming “meatball” sized balls ( you should be able to get 24 out of mixture) and place each one on a small baking sheet. Refrigerate for 1 hr. 
Melt 1 bag of the white Chocolate in the microwave for about 1 1/2 mins, removing every 15 secs to stir. Stir in the 2nd bag of chocolate a little at a time till the whole bag is combined with the 1st ( you possibly might need a little bit more cooking time in the microwave for this step if the bowl holding the chocolate isn’t warm enough. Once chocolate is melted, dip each truffle into the melted white chocolate making sure to coat the entire truffle. Place each one back on top a parchment covered baking sheet and add colored candy or sprinkles on top immediately after dipping..Let the melted chocolate dry for about 15 mins before handling.
