Valentine Cake Bites

I grabbed this silicone heart ice cube tray while at the dollar store a few weeks ago. I figured they might come in handy as a chocolate mold or something. I decided to use them to mold cake bites for our Primary class. The chocolate dipping process is never easy but they still came out well, I'm happy.

Valentine Cake Bites


1 box red velvet cake mix (and ingredients it calls for)
1/2 - 3/4 c vanilla frosting
milk chocolate
white chocolate
red food coloring


Preheat oven to 350F.
Follow directions for making cake mix. Use a 13x9 in pan to bake in. Let cool completely.

Prepare a baking sheet with wax paper. Crumble the cake into a large mixing bowl along with the frosting. Roll the mix into small balls or place in a desired chocolate mold. Refrigerate or freeze for about 30 min. until slightly more solid.
Pour the milk chocolate into a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds; stir vigorously. If it still needs more time, microwave in 10-second intervals until melted, stirring each time. Using a spoon or fork, dip half the cake bites into the milk chocolate and place back on the wax paper. If you get a big pool of chocolate around the bottom of a cake bite, use a toothpick to draw a line around it. Reserve about 2 spoonfuls of the chocolate for decorating.
In the same way, melt the white chocolate and add 2-3 drops of food coloring until it's your desired shade of pink. Use this for the rest of the cake bites, reserving approximately 2 spoonfuls.
Place the bites in the refrigerator to solidify.
Take a small ziploc bag and cut a very small hole in the corner. Pour in your remaining milk chocolate and use this to drizzle chocolate over your pink cake bites.
Do the same with your remaining white chocolate. Refrigerate again.
All done.

I won this Hershey contest about a year ago and got a big box with cookie mixes, kisses, and these boxes :) Knew I would use the boxes some day.
