Red Velvet Truffles

My sister-in-law is getting hitched on Saturday!

She loves red velvet cake, so I knew that as part of her bachelorette party gift, I would make her some Red Velvet Truffles.

These are super fun and totally delicious.

I made a variation of these for Christmas last year, but I was out of red food coloring, so they became Green Velvet Truffles.  Just as tasty, but with a variation on the festive flair.

This recipe requires you to make 4 cupcakes, then crumble them up with cream cheese and powdered sugar to make the truffle base.  A bit of an extra step compared to normal, but I promise it is worth it!
