Did I mention Schweddy Balls once upon a time? Those would be the red velvet cake balls I've made? To die for! Over the Christmas holidays, my sister made a version of cake balls with Oreos. So, for our neighborhood's tailgate party at the local St Patrick's Day parade, I made some Oreo Schweddy Balls. I used Mint Oreos - did not know they made those until I saw them in the store! Crush up the Oreos, mix them with an 8 oz package of Cream cheese, softened. Then you roll the mix into balls. Then you melt chocolate and dip the balls into the chocolate and let cool. I let the mix chill a bit before rolling them into balls and then again before dipping them - makes them easier to work with. So good. So very, very good. And quite a bit easier than the red velvet version - but that red cake makes those so special. Anyway - I highly recommend Schweddy Balls. They are worth the effort.
