cheesecake cheeseball

#dessert #somethingsweet #cheesecake

  • 16 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 package (about 3 cups) Funfetti cake mix
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 ½ cups sprinkles
  1. Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment beat together the cream cheese and the butter until fully incorporated.
  2. Add the cake mix, sugar, and vanilla extract and beat until fully incorporated.
  3. Beat in ½ cup sprinkles until somewhat evenly distributed.
  4. Lay out a piece of plastic wrap and scoop the cream cheese mixture onto it.
  5. Do your best to form a ball, then wrap up the ball in the plastic wrap. Do an extra layer of plastic wrap to help it keep its shape.
  6. Freeze for about 2 hours.
  7. Take the ball out of the freezer and unwrap.
  8. Place the sprinkles in a low shallow baking dish or jelly roll pan (I find a plate too small).
  9. Roll the ball in the sprinkles making sure you cover as much of it as you can.
  10. Wrap the ball back up into some plastic wrap and place in the fridge.
  11. If not serving that day, place back in the freezer and then take out an hour before serving to come up to room temperature.
  12. Serve with assorted cookies.
