Red Velvet Truffles

I don’t know about you, but February seems to have snuck up on me.  The older I get, the faster time goes by.  I mean, didn’t Christmas just happen?  And now the stores are clearancing Valentine’s stuff to make room for St. Patrick’s Day and spring.  Did I miss something?  What happened to slowing down and enjoying the moment?  Granted, I have been guilty at times of rushing through things, planning too many outings and get-togethers in a single day, and telling my 18-month old son, “Hurry! We’re going to be late!”  (Which now looking back, I just have to laugh, as toddlers have no concept of time, and rushing something is not in their mind-set.  It’s me who needs to get my act together sooner.  Someday I will learn my lesson.)

So in an effort of slowing down a bit, I decided to make something that our little family would love.  (And since we’re a sweet-loving family, it wasn’t hard to figure out what I was going to do.)  It didn’t require a lot of time, just a little effort to create a sweet moment.  And with a toddler, that moment was…well, just a moment, but that wasn’t the point.  He’s going to grow faster than I want, and these little moments are what I am going to remember–when we took time out of our busy day to spend a moment with the one who matter the most.

Truffles, cake bites, cake balls, cake lollipops–they’re all the same thing.  So call it whatever you like, they still taste delicious and are super easy to make.  You can find my tutorials and tips on how to make these here and here.  To make these truffles, you’ll need:

-silver disco dust

-pink disco dust

-silver edible hearts

-red sugar crystals

-white sanding sugar

-red velvet cake mix

-1/2 can cream cheese frosting

-lollipop sticks

-red, white, and pink candy melts

-styrofoam block  (dip the stick into the candy melts, then the balls, and shove the empty end of the stick into the block)

If you want to adhere any of the above to your truffle, you’ll have to do it right after you dip it in the candy melts, otherwise they won’t stick.

Create moments and memories with the ones you love.  Time goes by too fast not to.  Enjoy! xoxo
