Red velvet cheesecake balls


  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 8 oz (1 package) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 box red velvet cake mix (plus ingredients listed on the box)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extra
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • Red and white sprinkles (optional)
  • 12 oz white chocolate or white candy melts


Prepare Cake Mix* Preheat your oven according to the cake mix instructions. Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking dish.

Mix and Bake* Prepare the cake mix according to the package instructions, adding in the vanilla extract if using. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake as directed.

Cool* Allow the cake to cool completely.

Mix Ingredients* In a large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and butter until smooth.

Add Sugar and Vanilla* Gradually add in the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, beating until well combined and smooth.

Crumble Cake* Once the cake has cooled, crumble it into fine crumbs in a large bowl.

Mix with Frosting* Add the cream cheese frosting to the crumbled cake. Mix thoroughly until well combined and a dough-like consistency forms.

Shape Balls* Using your hands, form the mixture into small balls (about 1 inch in diameter) and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Chill* Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for at least 1-2 hours or until the balls are firm.

Melt Chocolate* In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate or candy melts in 30-second intervals, stirring after each, until smooth.

Dip Balls* Using a fork or a dipping tool, dip each ball into the melted chocolate, allowing any excess to drip off before placing back onto the parchment paper.

Decorate* Add sprinkles immediately if desired, before the chocolate sets.

Set* Allow the chocolate coating to set completely. You can place them back in the refrigerator to speed up this process.
