A chocolaty red velvet treat that uses only 4 ingredients and takes 5 minutes to make. But nobody will guess that because they’ll be too busy spreading bits of this delicious sweet cheese ball onto crackers.

So next week I’m going to be telling you about a chocolate cake filled with a red velvet cream cheese mixture. It is so so seriously good. So good that when making the filling, I kept dipping in a spoon and having yet another taste.

All that tasting made me think that it needed to be served by itself, not just hidden inside of a cake. I was then inspired to make a sort of sweet cheese ball.

I made a batch of the filling but with slightly less liquid. Sure enough, I could then roll it into a ball. It took minutes to make and turned out to be the perfect easy Valentine’s Day treat.

To make this sweet cheese ball all you do is mix together cream cheese with red velvet cake mix and confectioners sugar. Then shape it into a ball and roll it in chocolate chips. I like to serve it with graham crackers. The chocolate ones in the picture taste good with it. But I tried it again another day with the plain honey ones and liked that better.

Red Velvet Cheese Ball


  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 and 1/2 cups Red Velvet Cake Mix Powder
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips


  1. Put all ingredients in a medium bowl and cream together using a wooden spoon until it's all the same color. Press it into a ball. Roll in chocolate chips, pressing lightly so that they stick in. Transfer to a serving plate, cover loosely with plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour (but up to 24 hours) before serving.
