Ingredients
  • 110 g Butter, Softened (1/2 Cup)
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tbsp. Cocoa
  • 2 Tbsp. Red Food Colouring
Cream Cheese Icing;
  • 110 g Butter, Softened (1/2 Cup)
  • 1 Cup Cream Cheese
  • 3 Cups Icing Sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 400 g White Chocolate, Melted
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and line a 9"x9" baking tin with baking paper.

  2. Beat the butter, brown sugar and sugar together.
  3. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract.

  4. Beat in the flour, baking powder, cocoa and red food colouring.
  5. Pour into the prepared baking tin and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. The top and sides will be set and a skewer inserted should come out clean.
  6. Allow to cool to room temperature before crumbling into fine crumbs. (You could bake this the day before so the cake is easier to crumble.
Cream Cheese Icing;
  1. Beat the butter and cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add the vanilla extract and icing sugar and mix by hand until all combined and smooth.

  3. Place the red velvet crumbs in a bowl (reserving a handful for decorating).
  4. Add the cream cheese icing one cup at a time mixing in between.
  5. The mixture should be pliable and easy to roll into balls. Not stiff and crumbly or runny.
  6. Place in the fridge to harden for at least an hour.
  7. Melt the white chocolate and dip each red velvet truffle in the chocolate and place on a tray.
  8. Top with the remaining red velvet cake crumbs and allow the the chocolate to set before serving.
