Baked Red Velvet Cake Donut Holes

Do you want to know why these donuts holes are perfection? Because every bite has all the flavors of a delicious Red Velvet cake. With the red silk chocolate cake, the classic cream cheese icing, then finished off with the sweet ganache ending. It is a perfectly balanced bite.

I am sorry, well not really that sorry if you eat the whole batch in one morning or afternoon sitting. I made a batch thinking that I would have leftovers to take to a friend that night, well it didn’t happen. Between me, the kids, and a few friends stopping by, all 48 donut holes were gone. Well, I actually did set aside a few for my mom and dad as an early Valentine treat and they loved them!

These are so easy to make, don’t feel overwhelmed by the directions, the 30-40 minutes it takes to make these are well worth every second, especially if you are a bowl licker like me, you will be in heaven throughout the entire process.
