Red Velvet Cheese Ball

I made this yesterday for my coworkers....I think I am now everybody's favorite secretary!

It is a Red Velvet Cheese Ball. To.Die.For!!

I totally copied this recipe from Taste and Tell. Check it out...tons of great recipes! Here is the direct link to the recipe.

In a nutshell, it's RV cake mix, butter, cream cheese and brown sugar all mixed together and rolled in mini chocolate chips.  If you do NOT have a Kitchen Aid mixer, this is a BI-ATCH to make...I think my poor hand mixer almost died on me!  But it is soooo worth it in the end!

I also made one for my Funny Valentine, who has been battling a horrible cold.  Instead of kisses, I gave him a ball of cheese...I rock!

As of today, I am on an official Red Velvet strike until next February.  This next month will focus on greens...kale, brussel sprouts, beer {just to name a few}!


  1. How could you go wrong with cake mix, butter, cream cheese and brown sugar?? I've never seen anything like this before! Sounds divine!!

  2. A red velvet strike? Oh no! Red Velvet is so, so yummy! I am excited to hear about the beer that you will be focusing on next month, oh and the brussel sprouts too! :)

  3. Yay! I'm so glad you made it and it was a hit. We devoured ours! :) But a red velvet strike? Sad!! :)

  4. Don't go on strike, just go on an extrended hiatus :) This looks absolutely amazing. So amazing I wouldnt want to share it with anyone else!

  5. You should win employee of the year for that one. Wow - I had never heard of making something like that. Yum!

  6. Oh my gosh.... this looks amazing!!! I'm looking forward to the beer posts next month! Are you cooking with it or making it? Chris, my husband, is a homebrewer and our house always smells like hops! Its just lovely!

  7. Woah! That looks so good! Probably a stomach ache waiting to happen (because I would obviously eat the whole ball!)
