These red velvet truffles are the perfect Valentine’s day treat. They’re a delight to look at, as well as eat. 

I don’t eat a lot of cake, but I love red velvet cake – in pretty much any form. Red velvet cupcakes, yes. Red velvet trifle, absolutely! So why not try red velvet truffles! They make the perfect treat for any special occasion, like Valentine’s Day, or as wedding box giveaways.

We made these red velvet truffles for our wedding, along with some chocolate truffles. We packaged them up in pretty little boxes and gave them away as gifts at the door. They were a HUGE hit. Our guests were asking for the recipe before the wedding was even over.

You can make the red velvet cake yourself from scratch, but I think it’s just super easy to use a cake mix, and take that hassle out of the equation. Try a few red velvet cake mixes to find the one you like best.

  • 1 red velvet cake mix
  • 6 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 1/2 cup white chocolate melted
  • 4 oz red decorator's sugar


  • Bake the cake according to the package and let cool. Crumble the red velvet cake into a fine crumb. Fold in the cream cheese. Mix well.
  • Roll 1″ balls of the red velvet mixture in the palms of your hands, until all mixture has been used. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. It’ll make around 35-40 balls. Set in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
  • Melt the white chocolate. Remove the balls from the fridge. Using a fork, dip each truffle in the melted chocolate and place on parchment paper. Sprinkle with red decorating sugar. Put the truffles back in the fridge until the chocolate is set.
