1 box red velvet cake mix
1 can cream cheese frosting
1 package chocolate bark (regular or white chocolate)
Bake cake according to pkg directions in 9x13 pan and let cool completely. Break cake up in a large bowl (use a fork to break it up completely, with no lumps.) Mix in cream cheese frosting; start with a spoon, finish with your hands. Roll in to ping pong ball size and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Cool in fridge for several hours. They can be put in the freezer if you want to speed it up. Roll in melted chocolate bark. Store at room temp in an air tight container.
4 out of 5 people surveyed really liked these...I was the one who thought they were just ok. I think these would be phenomenal with chocolate cake and chocolate frosting. I would even add a little vanilla extract or even mint extract (my sisters suggestion...yum!) to counteract the canned frosting taste. Whatever cake mix you choose, use the coordinating frosting. The Red Velvet cake mix looked great for these, but really had little flavor. I went to three stores to find the Red Velvet cake mix and finally found one at Albertsons (just a little f.y.i.) Overall, they were a relatively easy, and different treat to make, and would make a great gift for Valentines Day!
