Red Velvet Cheese Ball

September 10th, 2012

I finally tried Deborah’s Red Velvet Cheese Ball recipe over on Taste and Tell. If you love red velvet cake you have to taste this. It’s all the goodness of the red velvet and cream cheese icing rolled into a big ball and covered in chocolate chips. I served mine with vanilla wafers and chocolate graham crackers. Yum to the max.

red velvet cheese ball recipe

8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups red velvet cake mix, dry
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
assorted cookies and crackers

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth. (I used my hand mixer and it worked fine.) Add in the red velvet cake mix, the brown sugar and the powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and combined. Turn the mixture out onto a piece of plastic wrap. Wrap up into a ball and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Put the chocolate chips on a plate or in a shallow dish. Remove the cheese ball from the refrigerator and unwrap. Roll in the chocolate chips. (This might get messy!) Place on a serving plate and serve with cookies or graham crackers.

  5. i tend to shy away from things with cream cheese, but this…this looks so good.

  6. Yum! I’ve found that any type of cheese ball, sweet or savory, are always big hits with a crowd. I’ll have to try this one out, for sure. Thanks!

    I have one q’s on the red velvet cake mix to you actually mix the cake mix like you would do a regular cake like add in the eggs and everything that it says on the back of the cake box and cook the red velvet cake first? Or do you just pour straight out the bag no mixing? Thanks

    • Amanda (wit & whistle)

      No, you don’t follow any of the instructions or add any of the ingredients listed on the cake mix box. You just use the dry cake mix.

  9. I’m making this tonight for a Christmas party. The hostess is a huge fan of red velvet cake, so I’m hoping it’s a big hit. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
