Red Velvet Truffles

Red Velvet Truffles from

This year I will be spending Valentine’s Day all alone…well, not totally alone. I plan on hanging out with a bottle of wine and some kind of sugary box of chocolates I pick out for myself. I will also probably watch Sweet Home Alabama about 3 times (while reciting all the lines back at the screen…with a heavier accent for each glass of wine I drink) and then fall asleep on the couch around 9pm.

If you are thinking of putting me on suicide watch, please don’t worry — I am actually looking forward to my plans. Sweet Home Alabama is one of my favorite all time movies, wine is awesome, and chocolate is pretty much wine’s best friend. It’s going to be an awesome Valentine’s Day.

Jorge will be out of town for work that week, so I figured what better way to celebrate? But I really am sad that we won’t get to do our traditional V-day stealth Target shopping trip together. Maybe we can do it on Friday when he gets back…and hey, then everything will be 75% off! Yay, for more candy!

You all know that while Jorge and I don’t celebrate V-day in the traditional way, I do love sweet treats that are V-day inspired. For example, last year we had those Marbled Red Velvet Cheesecake Bites and the Strawberry Nutella Poptarts…both featuring pretty red hearts of some kind. What can I say, I may not love V-day…but I do love all the pink, red & white girly stuff that is associated with it.

So for this Valentine’s Day, I didn’t want to disappoint you guys and not provide something overly sweet. Because let’s be honest, Valentine’s Day is the first time since Christmas that it is perfectly acceptable (and expected) for us to pig out on Sugar. Thank god for the holidays! πŸ˜‰

These little darlings take a few steps to make, but really are not difficult. Plus, if you have kids, I am sure they would have a blast getting to crumble up the cake and sprinkle on the little hearts!

    Made these today and I found out that the white chocolate did not want to stick. So frustrated with this since food is so expensive. The chocolate was just perfect and the truffle cake cold and it went into the chocolate the chocolate was warm not over heated. Tried it with much warmer chocolate same thing ended up being more of the dough being in the bowl.

    I’m so sorry I didn’t see these in time to make for Valentine’s Day…they’re so darling, and I love anything red velvet! I did make red velvet brownies, but these are so pop-able! I’m glad I found your site. The only problem is there isn’t enough time in the day to make everything I want to make here!

    i made these last night and they are F A B U L O U S. my Valentine better hope that his flight home tonight is not delayed…i’ve already popped two this morning. just sayin’.

    Ooooh I wonder if you could do something like this using the leftover scraps from your red velvet marbled brownies .. hmmm. Though I do like your milkshake idea too (; Thanks for responding yesterday, I knew something was wrong when I read 6 cups of flour on the other site !! I am going to try to make them probably tomorrow or Friday and let you know how mine turn out ! I am sure I will have fabulous results like everyone else. I am spending Valentine’s Day alone too but that is because the boyfriend is traveling. He comes home Saturday. Maybe I’ll try to save him some of the treats (;

    I just made the cake part and it didn’t really rise that much-not as much as a box cake. Is that right? I did use the soda. Hmmm?

    1. Jessica

      It should have risen a lithe, but it’s not a super tall cake. It’s moist, not fluffy. Which is what you want for a cake ball. πŸ˜‰

    The recipe isn’t showing up on the Dixie site. The link sends me to their home page. Would you be able to post it here?

    Thanks πŸ™‚

    Just read about your Valentine’s Day tradition and I love it! What fun! I know my man would totally add in some of his favorite candy to his purchase (Dots, ewww) but as long as he had chocolate and sour patch watermelon I wouldn’t mind! LOL!

    Your Texas accent gets stronger the more you drink?! Me too. It’s kinda embarrassing.

    These truffles are perfect. I wish someone would make them for me for V Day…

    These make me smile with unequivocal joy. And I too will be joining you with a glass (or bottle, why lie) of wine. Ben will inevitably blame his nursing school studying or homework as a way to get out of any forced romanticism. He’s such a sweetie. haha Poor guy, I make such fun of him.

  10. Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe

    Sounds like a wonderful way to spend Valentine’s Day! I’m going to make myself a chocolate cake and see how much of it I can eat!

  11. Diana @ Sweet y Salado

    OK, the beginning of this blog entry totally reminded me of Bridget Jones, that was hilarious. And chocolate and wine? Best combo ever! Too bad my husband doesn’t like chocolate, you know, because he’s a freak. Oh! But give him a box of stale doughnuts from Walmart and he’s all over that.

  12. Stephanie @ Girl Versus Dough

    Girl, you and me are doing the SAME thing on Valentine’s Day (my hubs is working that night). I’m definitely making these truffles as my date for that day! πŸ™‚

  13. Hope @ Hanna Bananas Boutique

    I love your idea for V-day!! We never do the traditional thing either! Too much trouble!! Sweet Alabama is also one of my all time favs!! Love that movie!! Gorgeous Truffles!! My daughter would love making these!! πŸ™‚

  14. Christine @ Cooking with Cakes

    these look delightful! I love that you roll them by hand rather than need a special cake-pop tray – makes these babies a lot more attainable!

    delicious πŸ™‚

  15. Ali | Gimme Some Oven

    Yum!!! These look amazing! πŸ™‚

    And that sounds like a wonderfully relaxing night ahead!

  16. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    Wine and candy alone actually sounds pretty awesome. No one needing you, no one bothering you. I love those kind of couch nights …they just rarely happen for me! And gorgeous truffles, of course.

  17. Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love.

    Your V-Day plans sound pretty good to me! Especially if these truffles are involved!

  18. Gerry @ Foodness Gracious

    I know my kids would sprinkle like, 1 sprinkle and lick the fingers for the rest πŸ™‚ These look great and so moist!
