Red Velvet Cake Cheese Ball

This is my kinda dessert. No bake, no fuss, just sweet enough.

My friend, Kathryn, made this for a holiday party we had and I resisted the urge to eat it all myself. I got the recipe from her (which is from this site) and replicated it for another get together. Again, it took a lot to not eat the whole thing before friends came over.

Ingredients
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups red velvet cake mix, dry
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
assorted cookies and crackers (my favorite was Vanilla Wafers or Graham Crackers)

Directions
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth.

Turn the mixture out onto a piece of plastic wrap. Wrap up into a ball and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Put the chocolate chips on a plate or in a shallow dish. Remove the cheese ball from the refrigerator and unwrap. Roll in the chocolate chips. (This might get messy!) Place on a serving plate and serve with cookies or graham crackers.
