Red Velvet Pop Tart Truffles

Want to make something special for your sweetie for Valentine's Day but don't have the time to make the ever-popular Red Velvet cake balls? Kellogg's Limited Edition Red Velvet Pop Tarts truffles will make a great last-minute Valentine's Day dessert that will impress your better half and still leave you enough time to run out the store and buy a... get ready for a shameless work plug... heartfelt and beautifully made Blue Mountain Arts Valentine's Day card.

Red Velvet Pop Tart Truffles

  • 6  Kellogg's Limited Edition Red Velvet Pop Tarts
  • 6-8 ounces cream cheese frosting from a can
  • Baking bark (white or chocolate, your choice)
  1. Pulverize tarts in food processor until they are crumbs.
  2. Add cream cheese frosting and mix until combined.
  3. Scoop into balls with your 2t cookie scoop.
  4. Chill in fridge to harden.
  5. Melt chocolate bark, coat truffles, and stick them back in the fridge until set.
The ratio of frosting to pop tart is higher in this recipe than in my previous ones, but there's a reason: the flavor of the pop tarts is strong enough to handle it, and the additional frosting gives the truffle a creamy, cakey consistency. 

The verdict? Yum! Kellogg's did a great job capturing the flavor of the red velvet cake, and when you add in the frosting and white chocolate, you'll want to drop your current honey bunny and ask these Red Velvet Pop Tart truffles to be yours forever.
