Here's another fantastic, delicious dessert dip! What's better than Red Velvet? This one is really fantastic. It was the most popular one I served at my New Year's Eve party and a HUGE hit with the adults. You can serve anything with this dip, pretzels, graham crackers, cookies etc. I love pretzels with it, something about the sweet and salty aspect of that combo is a winner with me.
1 package (8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups red velvet cake mix,dry
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Vanilla Wafers, pretzels, graham crackers, or other cookies for dipping
In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer or stand mixer beat the cream cheese and butter together until combined. Add in the Red Velvet cake mix, brown sugar, and powdered sugar and beat until combined. Mixture will seem extremely dry and you will think it will never get creamy but I assure you it will. Just keep beating it together and have patience.
Place the mixture on a large piece of plastic wrap. Bring up all the corners of the plastic wrap and wrap into a ball. Refrigerate the ball for about 1 hour or until it is firm enough to keep its shape. You can also put it in the freezer for quicker results.
Place the rainbow sprinkles on a flat plate and roll the unwrapped cheese ball in the sprinkles. Make sure to press the sprinkles into the cheese ball until it is fully covered.
Place the ball on a serving dish, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until you are ready to serve. The cheese ball will be very firm straight out of the refrigerator so let stand for about 10-15 min before serving. Also you may want to place a few small spreaders on the platter to make it easier to serve.
