Red Velvet Cheese Ball


Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Yield 16 servings


  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 (15.25oz) box red velvet cake mix, dry
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • vanilla cookies/graham crackers, for serving


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese and butter together until smooth. 
  2. Add the cake mix, powdered sugar, and brown sugar. Mix until incorporated well.
  3. Scrape mixture onto a large piece of plastic wrap. Use wrap to shape mixture into a ball. Refrigerate in plastic wrap until firm enough to handle, about 30 minutes. 
  4. Place chocolate chips on a plate. Unwrap cheese ball and roll in chocolate chips. (*TIP: To keep from getting too messy, use the plastic wrap to help you roll the cheese ball.) Serve with vanilla cookies, graham crackers, etc.
