“I'm not a chocolate fan, but when you add cream cheese and butter that changes everything. It's like eating frosting. Wowzer is this good. I made some extra balls to use the full cake mix, but I'll post the recipe as listed. Serving size is estimated. Recipe courtesy of”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 12 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1 12 cups red velvet cake mix, dry
  • 12 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 12 cup mini chocolate chip
  • assorted crackers and cookie (Vanilla Wafers preferred)


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth.
  2. Add in the red velvet cake mix, powdered sugar, and brown sugar.
  3. Beat until smooth and combined.
  4. Turn the mixture out onto a piece of plastic wrap (I skipped this step and just had in container in fridge). Wrap up into a ball and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  5. Put the chocolate chips on a plate in a shallow dish. Remove the cheese ball from the refrigerator and unwrap.
  6. Roll in the chocolate chips. Place on a serving plate and serve with cookies or graham crackers.
