Red Velvet Ghost Truffles

I recently had some really yummy truffles and I started thinking about other combinations I could make. Because I am obsessed with red velvet lately. I decided to make some delicious red velvet truffle ghosts for Halloween. They are so easy to make with only three ingredients and no baking.

You will need: red velvet cake mix, 1 block of cream cheese (8 oz.), and candy making chocolate in vanilla, wax paper for cooling

1. Make red velvet cake as directed

2. Bake cake and cool completely

3. Pull apart the whole cake and put in a mixing bowl with the softened block of cream cheese (only a small piece of cake pictured here)

4. Your final mixture will feel like a really moist play-doh.

5. Form cake mixture into 1 inch balls. Start melting your chocolate in the microwave

6. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate and place on wax paper.

7. Put truffles into freezer overnight to harden

8. You are left with some simple, yummy truffles perfect for parties

I added some ghost faces with regular candy making chocolate to create cute little ghosts
Happy Halloween 2011!
