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.
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.
