Perfect for the holidays, this Grinch-themed cheese ball has a green hue and is covered in tiny heart-shaped sprinkles. Plus, it can be made different flavors!
‣ 8 ounce cream cheese, softened ‣ 1/2 cup salted butter, softened ‣ 1 1/2 cup dry cake mix, can use white, yellow, or any flavor that's pale once baked ‣ 1/2 cup powdered sugar ‣ 2 tablespoon light brown sugar ‣ 1 teaspoon green food coloring ‣ 1/2 cup heart shaped sprinkles ‣ graham crackers or cookies, for dipping
Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl), add the cream cheese, butter, dry cake mix, powdered sugar, and brown sugar. Whip them together on medium-high speed until ultra creamy.
Turn off your mixer and grab a spatula. Add the green food coloring and gently fold it into the cheese ball mixture, making sure to scrape along the bottoms and sides.
Lay out a piece of plastic wrap and scoop the cheese ball mixture into the center. Lift up the sides of the plastic wrap and cover the cheese ball. Once done, set it in the refrigerator to chill.
On a flat work area, spread out your heart-shaped sprinkles. Unwrap the cheese ball and drop it in the sprinkles, then use your hands (or just roll it around) to cover the cheese ball in sprinkles.
