Red Velvet Cake Balls

Sharing is caring!

These Red Velvet Cake Balls are simple and easy to make. They make a great addition to any holiday get-together. This dessert is perfect for bake sales, charcuterie boards, dessert trays, cookie trays, and more.

One of the most requested items I make every holiday season is my cake balls. The most popular recipe I have are my Strawberry Cake Balls. However, the red velvet ones come in at a close second.

One box of cake mix makes a huge batch of these. Stick them in the freezer and they will last for 3-4 months.

I get asked a lot as well — what is a cake ball? The best way I can describe it is — it's like eating cake but in one bite forms instead of eating an entire piece of cake.

What do you coat the cake balls with?

Coat the cake balls with bright white melting chips and then fun Christmas sprinkles. Since these are red velvet flavors, I chose to add red, gold, and white sprinkles.

Mix the crumbled cake with cream cheese frosting and then I use this cookie scoop to get the perfect uniform size.

I take these red velvet cake balls to all events I attend and I always sell out no matter how many I bring. The bite-sized pieces are perfect for bake sales and such.

This is a fun appetizer to take to parties this holiday season, and the cake balls would be the perfect hit!

  • 1 box of red velvet cake mix
  • 1/2 tub of cream cheese frosting
  • 12 ounce bag of white melting chocolates
  • Christmas sprinkles


  1. Bake the cake according to the package directions. Let it cool completely.
  2. Once the cake is cooled, use your hand to break it up and crumble the cake into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Now, add in the 1/2 tub of cream cheese frosting. Mix well until the cake mix crumbles will hold together and form a ball.
  4. Use the cookie scoop to scoop out the dough into balls. Roll in your hands until the ball is smooth.
  5. Place the balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Once all the balls have been rolled, place them in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
