Red Velvet Cake Balls

I finally did it! I made Bakerella's Red Velvet Cake Balls. My hands were too sticky and red to stop and take pics, so I used bakerella's pics. They were much easier to make than I expected. They came out yummy!!
My notes:
I didn't use the entire can of frosting, maybe about 3/4. I didn't realize the recipe calls for them to be refrigerated for 4 hours. I was out of time, so I froze them for about 30 minutes. Because I was rushing, my chocolate coating came out a little messier than I wanted. I did the 2 spoon method, but by the end I was getting cake balls with lots of extra chocolate dripping down to create a big chocolate base. The chocolate lovers liked that. But since I'm not a chocolate person and I want them to look like bakerella's, next time, I'll plan on more time for the chocolate coating. Also, I made some "naked" cake balls, with no chocolate coating. I loved 'em! I'm not much of a sweet tooth, so I may be alone here in liking those. I can't wait to make them again!!
