Red Velvet Cake Balls

Red Velvet Cake Balls
I first tasted these two years ago at a Christmas party and immediately had to have the recipe. It’s based on a mix, but I imagine you can follow the same directions substituting from scratch cake and frosting (I’ll try that one day). You can also try it with other cake combinations. Red Velvet Cake Balls1 box red velvet cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)1 can cream cheese frosting (16 oz.)1 package chocolate bark (regular or white chocolate)wax paper 1. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.2. I also only melt a few pieces of chocolate bark at a time because it starts to cool and thicken. Want to see how good they look in white chocolate?

Butterbeer Cupcakes This is part IV in a mini-series of Harry Potter snacks from the books brought to life (part I is on Honeydukes treats, part II is all about the cauldron cakes, and part III features every wizard's favorite drink—butterbeer!). I confess that Butterbeer Cupcakes aren't actually mentioned in the Harry Potter series. In my defense, if JK Rowling had been given one of these while writing the books, she would have found a way to fit them in. They are so exceptional, I wouldn't be surprised if she featured them as a major plot point. I'm only half joking. Humor aside, the release of the final movie is upon us. Yet, as I keep reminding myself, this isn't really goodbye. My collection of Harry Potter books isn't going anywhere. I don't know about you, but I can always use the comfort of an old friend. These Butterbeer Cupcakes are easily on my list of the top three cupcakes of all time (if you put another one in front of me, I just may declare these the winner). You need to make these.

Self-frosting Nutella Cupcakes Cupcakes are an easy sell. Add Nutella, and they’re a hit. Best of all, swirling the Nutella directly into the white batter before baking creates swirly, chocolatey tops that have no need for frosting – saving you a step. And if you have kids who like to lick the frosting off their cupcakes and leave a sticky stump, the Nutella is baked right in. The batter is thick – it needs to be about the same consistency as the Nutella so that you can swirl the two together easily. The resulting cupcakes are dense and moist, and easy to take on picnics or to other events that call for transporting them – without frosting, it’s easier to bring them with you without risk of an icing mess. NOTE: In response to the comments below that the cupcakes were coming out dry, I’ve reworked this recipe.
