1 1/2 cup of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of red velvet dry cake mix from box
1 cup of chocolate dry cake mix from box
1 cup of cherry chip dry cake mix from box
1/4 cup of cherry filling without the cherries
1 1/2 bags of melting chocolate
sprinkles to decorate
Bowl #1-- mix 1/2 cup of sweetened condensed milk , 1 cup of red velvet cake mix, and 1/4 cup of cherry filling. If it's to sticky, add a little more cake mix.
Bowl #2-- mix 1/2 cup of sweetened condensed milk and 1 cup of cherry chip cake mix. If it's to sticky, add a little bit more cake mix.
Bowl #2-- mix 1/2 cup of sweetened condensed milk and 1 cup of chocolate cake mix. If it's to sticky, add a little bit more cake mix.
2. press a little bit of each truffle mix into silicone mold
3. freeze for about an hour or until hard
4. melt the chocolate
5. remove truffles from freezer and dip in chocolate. I prefer to dip once, let it harden and dip a second time. If you are placing sprinkles on your truffles you need to do so right after dipping. If you are planning on keeping them for awhile, store them in fridge or freezer.
