Red Velvet Cheese Ball

I call this the Murder Ball.  Because it's red and stains everything, and it will probably kill you.  I obviously don't make this for just the two of us sitting around the house, but it's fun to trot out for parties.  I like to serve it with Nilla Wafers, and graham crackers are good, too.

Red Velvet Cheese Ball 
from Taste and Tell Blog

8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cup red velvet cake mix
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Beat cream cheese and butter until smooth.  Add cake mix and sugars and beat again until smooth and combined.  Mix in a handful of chocolate chips.  Place on a sheet of plastic wrap and use your hands to shape it into a ball.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, wrapped in the plastic.  Put chocolate chips on a plate.  Remove the cheese ball from the wrap and roll it in the chips, coating evenly.  Serve with graham crackers or Nilla Wafers.
