Not only was it beautiful sitting out on the table it was delicious. I instantly went on pinterest and pinned it to my baking board. It's like a red velvet cupcake and cream cheese frosting all mixed into one, to top it off it's served with vanilla wafer cookies. It was very simple and quick to make, bonus!
We took it to 3 parties in one week, and never once was I sick of it. It's such a fun way to serve dessert and something most people haven't seen yet. How amazing would it be to sit down with a group of girlfriends, some good wine, and this red velvet yumminess.
Here is the recipe from Taste and Tell:
Red Velvet Cheese Ball
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes
Yield: 16 servings
The ultimate dip for red velvet lovers!! This sweet version of a cheeseball will have you going back for more!
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 (my favorite was Vanilla Wafers)
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth. 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.
