perfect for a party! Tasteandtellblog.com

Serves: 16 servings

Ingredients

8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

½ cup butter, at room temperature

1½ cups red velvet cake mix, dry

2 tablespoons brown sugar

½ cup powdered sugar

½ cup mini chocolate chips

assorted cookies and crackers (my favorite was Vanilla Wafers)

Instructions

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.
