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.
