To make the cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two 9-inch circle pans with softened butter then coat it with flour. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, mix together chocolate cake mix, buttermilk, oil and eggs. Continue mixing until all ingredients are combined.
  • Add cocoa powder and continue mixing. Then, add red gel food coloring and continue mixing.
  • Pour batter into each pan and bake for 25-28 minutes. Remove from pan and allow for the cakes to cool on a wire rack.

To decorate:

  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, crumble your cake into fine bits. Then, add vanilla frosting and mix (you’ll have to get messy and use your hands for this).
  • Roll the cake into spheres about 1 to 1.5 inches in size. Place gently on lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Once time is up, microwave white chocolate and coconut oil in 30-second intervals until completely melted. Stir with a spoon between each interval.
  • Dip each sphere into the melted chocolate and coat completely. Place back onto lined sheet and top with red sprinkles.
  • Place back into refrigerator for another 20 to 30 minutes and serve. Enjoy!
