Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla, divided
  • 1/2 ounce red food coloring
  • 1 stick butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces cream cheese frosting
  • 12 ounces white chocolate chips
  • candy sprinkles

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Spray a 9X13 pan with cooking spray.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the cocoa, 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla and the food coloring together to form a paste, set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and sugar until fluffy.
  5. Beat in eggs, then add the last teaspoon of vanilla.
  6. Once incorporated, mix in the red velvet paste.
  7. Add flour and salt and mix just until combined.
  8. Spread batter in the pan and bake for 22-26 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Cool pan completely on a wire rack.
  10. Break up the cooled pan of brownies into crumbs with a fork.
  11. Pour the crumbs into a large bowl.
  12. Add frosting to the crums and mix until it is all blended well.
  13. Roll the mixture into 3/4" balls and place them on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
  14. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  15. Melt the white chocolate in a bowl.
  16. Dip each truffle in the chocolate, and place back on the baking sheet.
  17. After you have dipped 2 or 3 truffles, pour the sprinkles on top before the chocolate hardens.
  18. Once all the truffles are done, place the baking sheet in the fridge for 20 minutes, so the chocolate can set.
  19. Serve, and keep leftovers in the fridge.
