- box red velvet cake mix (plus ingredients listed on the box to prepare the cake)
- 8 oz cream cheese-softened
- 16 oz white chocolate
- 2 oz dark or semi-sweet chocolate
Prepare a 9 x 13 inch crust according to the instructions on the package, let it cool completely, then crumble it into a large bowl.
Add the soft cream cheese and knead lightly with your fingers until the cream cheese is fully incorporated into the dough.
Form balls from a tablespoon of the mixture and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. You will get about 35-40 balls. Place them in the refrigerator to cool.
Melt the white chocolate, take the balls out of the fridge and dip them into the melted chocolate with a fork. Place one ball at a time in the melted chocolate, roll the balls around so that they are evenly coated with chocolate, then lightly tap the edge of the bowl with a fork to cut off any excess chocolate and place the truffles on parchment paper. Return to the refrigerator until the chocolate is firm.
Melt the dark chocolate, put it in a small bag, cut off a corner and spread the melted chocolate over the truffles.
Store in the refrigerator.
