This Cake Batter Cheeseball has the delicious flavor of cake batter mixed in with cream cheese for a sweet, and not savory, cheeseball. Great as an appetizer or dessert!
You all went goo goo for my Peanut Butter Cheeseball, so I figured with the holiday season its about time I share another variety. This cake batter cheese ball is another sweet / dessert type cheese ball that is perfect for a holiday party, birthday party, or just for a game night with a couple friends.
This cake batter cheese ball is super easy to make, you’ll beat together some cream cheese and butter, and then mix in some cake mix (not prepared, just the dry mix), vanilla extract, and powdered sugar. You can stir in some sprinkles too if you want. Chill and then coat the whole thing in LOTS more sprinkles.
Since this cheese ball is sweet you can still serve it for an appetizer, but its great for an easy dessert too. Serve it with graham cracker sticks, vanilla wafers and pretzels if you want.
I just love cake batter, but I always feel bad eating too much of it because the raw eggs – this cake batter cheese ball is the perfect alternative! Its got the same great cake batter tastes, but its egg free, and I must say its completely delicious!
