Instructions to Make Patriotic Funfetti Cake Cheese Ball

Making this red, white, and blue cake mix cheese ball is as easy as combining the ingredients, forming a ball, freezing it, then covering it in red, white, and blue sprinkles. And that’s it!

Step One: Cream Butter and Cream Cheese

Begin by adding the butter and cream cheese to a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, combine until smooth and creamy.

Step Two: Add Remaining Ingredients

Next, add the cake mix and both sugars mixing on medium speed until completely combined.

Step Three: Form A Ball

Now lay out a large piece of plastic wrap. Using your hands, shape the mixture into a ball and place it in the middle of the plastic wrap. Bring up all 4 corners of the wrap to form the ball tighter and cover it completely.

Step Four: Place in Fridge

Place into the freezer for one hour or until the ball is mostly firm.

Step Five: Cover in Sprinkles

Once the ball is ready, remove it from the plastic wrap and place it on a plate. Pour the jimmies into a shallow pan or plate.

Can Funfetti Cake Mix Cheese Ball Dip Be Made Ahead of Time?

Planning ahead? This recipe can be prepared up to 12 hours ahead of serving time. Once made, simply place the Patriotic Funfetti Cake Cheese Ball in the freezer until you are ready to serve.

It won’t take it long to thaw enough to where you can easily dip it. I usually remove it about 30 minutes before serving time.
