Here’s what you’ll need to make this easy cake balls recipe.

  • 8 oz. Package of Cream Cheese
  • 1 Cup Reddi-wip ® Extra Creamy Dairy Whipped Topping, about 4 seconds when pressing the nozzle

  • Spoon
  • Parchment Paper

directions to Make Red Velvet Cake Balls recipe

Step 1

Bake your cake according to the directions on the package.

Tip: If you want a really easy removal once the cake is baked, simply rub the entire inside of the cake pan with shortening then dust with all-purpose flour. Tap the pan over the sink to remove any excess flour then pour the batter into the pan. It works perfectly every time!

Step 2

Prepare your cookie sheet by lining it with parchment paper and setting it aside.

Step 3

Once your cake is baked and cooled, you can lift it out of the pan and start crumbling the cake while placing pieces into a large bowl.

I actually placed the pieces into the bowl for my stand mixer but you can just use your hands in a large bowl too.

Step 4

Add the  Reddi-Wip into the bowl along with the cream cheese.

Step 5

Start mixing until the cake mixture starts to stick to itself.

If you are using a stand mixer this will take you about 5 minutes.

Step 6

Use your hands to form little cake balls about 1-2 inches in diameter. Once the balls are formed, place them on the cookie sheet.

Step 7

Place the entire cookie sheet in the freezer for 20-30 minutes until the cake balls get nice and firm.

Step 8

Melt the chocolate morsels in the microwave. Be careful not to burn your chocolate. Simply heat for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat until the chocolate is melted enough to drizzle.

Step 9

Use the spoon to dip the frozen cake balls in the melted chocolate.

I find it is easier to drizzle the chocolate over the top of the frozen cake ball. Then tap lightly to remove any excess chocolate.

Step 10

Once your cake balls are dipped in chocolate, place them back onto the cookie sheet, covered with parchment paper, and place them into the refrigerator to harden. If you are using sprinkles now is the time to apply them while the chocolate is still melted.

Step 11

As soon as the chocolate has hardened remove it from the fridge. You can then place the red velvet cake balls into small cupcake liners or eat them out.

I’ll warn you, these are quite addicting. They are so creamy and chocolaty that it’s hard to eat just one!
