Yes, you heard right, a red velvet cheese ball!  How good does that sound?!  Well it sounded pretty good to me.  I was out browsing around Pinterest (major time sucker, I know) one day when I came upon this recipe by Taste and Tell and I just HAD to make it.  The great thing was, it called for red velvet cake mix and I just happened to have some leftover mix sitting in my pantry from when I made red velvet cake batter truffles.  I had been trying to figure out how I could use the rest of it up and this sounded perfect.

The recipe is really quite easy, you basically put everything in a bowl, mix it up, form it into a ball, chill it and cover it with crushed up white chocolate chips.  That’s it!  It would be the perfect thing to make for a Valentine’s Day celebration, you can whip it up in no time and it is really delicious.

 

Red Velvet Cheese Ball

  • 8 oz cream cheese (I used light), softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups red velvet cake mix
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips, slightly crushed

Put cream cheese and butter in a mixing bowl and cream together with a mixer.

Add cake mix, brown sugar and powdered sugar, mix until well combined.

Once mixture is well combined, turn out onto a piece of plastic wrap and form into a ball.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

While the cheese ball is chilling, lightly crush white chocolate chips.  I did this by putting them in the blender and pulsing until I has the right consistency.

Once cheese ball is chilled, unwrap it and place it on a piece of parchment paper and do any necessary re-shaping.

Gently press white chocolate onto cheese ball until well coated.  Serve with vanilla wafers.

ENJOY!
