Red Velvet Cake Balls Dipped In Chocolate - Place the white chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave-safe bowl. I kept imagining them with a white chocolate monogram on them. I did not freeze the balls before I put them in the melted chocolate. It is bound to put a smile on their face! Line balls on wax paper and put in freezer for at least an hour. Once you have used all of the cake mixture, place the baking tray in the freezer for 1 hour.
Let candy harden (either in the freezer or at room temp) before cutting into pieces to serve. They are a great gift instead of the traditional box of candy. Mine was made from Red Velvet Cake dipped in pink Candy Melts (2 bags). Using a fun, sparkly red gel is perfect. Working about 4 balls at a time, dip balls in chocolate using a spoon or a dipping fork and place on prepared baking sheet.
Simply use a nifty cookie scoop or a spoon (so that they are all roughly the same size) and scoop some of the cake/frosting mix into your hands.

Place the baking soda in a small bowl or cup, add the vinegar and stir. Roll a heaping tablespoon of dough into a 1½-inch ball and place it on the prepared baking sheet.
I sometimes think I’d prefer cookie dough or cake batter to an actual baked product. Cookie dough balls can also be frozen up to 2-3 months. Mix thoroughly with 1 can cream cheese frosting. The second step is the crumble up the cake and add the frosting. The process of making such fine crumbs and combining with frosting makes it very moist, sweet, and a creamy texture. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight. In a medium sized bowl, combine the melted and cool butter, red velvet cake mix, egg and vanilla extract.

These mini desserts are easy to make with a little practice. Long after the treats are gone, the basket remains as a shiny reminder of your thoughtfulness on his/her graduation.
