Red Velvet is one of my favorite flavors and I love how this recipe provides that flavor in a unique form! This would be a great option for a date night in, Gal-entine’s Party, or a sweet treat for kids.

Duncan Heines Red Velvet Cake Mix

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Red Velvet cake mix
  • 1 stick of butter, softened
  • 2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 large container of Valentine’s Day sprinkles

Tip: You can still use the rest of the Red Velvet cake mix to make cupcakes or a smaller cake so it’s not wasted, just use slightly less than the added ingredients on the box mix.

Substitutions

For a slightly healthier modification of this Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Ball, you can make the following tweaks:

  • Swap out the stick of butter for 1/2 cup I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter or margarine
  • Replace cream cheese with reduced-fat cream cheese
  • Use fruit for dipping sides

Suggestions for Sides

This is really up to you! I’d recommend Golden Oreos, Nilla Wafers, animal crackers, graham crackers, large marshmallows, apple slices, or strawberries.

Perfect Presentation Platters

If you’d like to use a cute Valentine’s Day plate for this Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Ball, here are some fun options!

Valentine’s Day Plates: This heart-shaped pink platter is a great find, as well as this rectangular dish with hearts, or these pink scalloped dessert plates. (All from Target.) Williams-Sonoma also has this beautiful watercolor heart platter made from stoneware from, this round marble LOVE cheeseboard, this heart-shaped cheeseboard, or this set of 4 cute heart plates that you could reuse every year.

For a matching set, you could also get these watercolor mugs, tea towels, or placemats from Williams-Sonoma as well!

Everyday Platters: If you’d prefer to have platters that aren’t holiday themed, I’ve got you covered! For a fun option you could use all year, I used this set of two white porcelain platters. I also love this beaded wooden cake stand, this gold hammered tray, this wooden serving tray, or this round agate cheeseboard.

Yes! You can prep this Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Ball 1-2 days ahead of time and store in the refrigerator wrapped in Saran Wrap.

Storing Leftovers

Wrap up any leftovers in Saran Wrap or store in an airtight Tupperware container in the refrigerator. This should stay fresh for about 4 days, although I bet it will be gobbled up before then! 🙂
