I've got to give credit where credit is due, thank you mom for finding this on pinterest and thank you to Taste and Tell for the red velvet weight I put on during my trip to Michigan!  Prepare yourself, your lives are about to be changed, for the better.  My mom found this on pinterest and when she told me what she was making of course I gave her the usual "you're absolutely the battiest women I know are you sure I wasn't switched at birth" look.  Which 27 years later still ruffles her feathers, my goal in life.  Anyway against my disgust she made it.  

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.
Maddie James caught red handed...literally!  Turned our back for one minute and BAM cheese ball destroyed.  At least she is attempting to use a utensil!
