♣GREEN Velvet Cake Balls♣

I have been baking up a storm this past week:)
But I had to try the famous Red Velvet Cake Balls in GREEN!!
I used my homemade recipe that you can find HERE and used 1 bottle of GREEN food coloring instead of 2 red.  I cooled the cake, added about 1/2-3/4 of the homemade frosting and mixed it well with a spoon.
Rolled them into cute little balls...turning my hands a pretty shade of GREEN!!  Placed them  on a cookie sheet with wax paper and put them in the freezer for 1/2 hour.
Then it's time to dip!!  I mentioned telling you all about my new easy dipping method last fall and got horrible morning sickness and never got a chance to make them.  So here is my tutorial...
First - melt your chocolate according to package.
Then stick a ball on a toothpick (I stick toothpick into the flat end of the ball) and dip about 3/4 of ball in chocolate.
Second - place on a foam block to dry.
Third - take half dipped ball off the toothpick and redip just the bottom of the cake ball into the chocolate.
Fourth - place on clean wax paper to dry again.  Next I would drizzle with more chocolate or white almond bark, but I accidentally put holes in my bottles warming them up in the microwave:(  And you can't find baking stuff around here!!
The next thing of course would be to DEVOUR this scrumptious little treats...
But beware they may turn your mouth GREEN!♣
I definitely prefer the homemade recipe over the box mix any day!!!!
Of course I had little helpers that were dying to try some dipping of their own.  So I gave them toothpicks, let them dip away and we sprinkled them with yummy lemon, lime sprinkles:)
