I found this recipe on Bakerella's website and thought they'd be fun to make.

All you need:

1 red velvet cake mix (water, oil, & eggs)
1 can cream cheese frosting
Melting chocolate
sucker sticks

Prepare the cake according to the box. I'm still learning my oven so my edges were a little done. It didn't matter though.

Crumble the cake up into a mixing bowl. I've had this particular bowl since I moved out on my own in 1990. It's had a few or more cakes mixed up in it over the years.

Mix in the container of cream cheese frosting. Now here's the fun oops I mean incredibly messy part. Roll small amounts of the mixture into balls. I found this to be a big pain in the butt process. A small tip: stop after about 5 and wash your hands and you'll find they don't stick as much. Once some of the batter is on your hands, the balls tend to stick to your fingers. Place the balls on waxed paper.

I went ahead and poked the sucker sticks into mine but I don't think it matters.

Place the tray of balls into the freezer for about an hour. This will help them firm up so that you can dip them into the melted chocolate.

Melt your chocolate in the microwave. Dip each one into the chocolate. Once again, another pain in the butt process. If you like doing chocolate dipped pretzels, you won't mind this.

And here's the finished product. Definitely not as pretty as Bakerella's but I'm an incredible amateur baker so for me, they look fabulous!

And oh do they taste yummy!

I wish you were here to try one. Or two. That way I don't eat them all!
