This Festive Cookie Dough Dessert Cheeseball is a fun, delicious holiday dessert! It only has a few easy ingredients and will be a hit at your office party or Christmas get-together.
Y'all know I'm a big fan of doctoring up cake mix for cakes (my top 6 recipes here!), but there are so many other great ways to use cake mixes. For example, these cake mix cookies. I actually call them Butter Crisp Cookies and they are delish!
Well today I have a new recipe for you using cake mix and you're going to love it! By adding some cream cheese (you can't go wrong with cream cheese, right?), sugar, butter and a couple of other ingredients, you're going to create a sweet cheeseball that'll knock your socks off.

- 1 box of Yellow Cake Mix

How to Make a Dessert Cheeseball
Once you have everything on hand, this dessert cheeseball is super easy to put together!
Mix until well combined.
Then roll into a ball. It will be sticky 😊 In a bowl big enough to hold the cheeseball, add about 1 inch of red sparkling sugar and drop your cheeseball in.
Place in the middle of a plate and surround with vanilla wafers.
Sprinkle with white sugar.
TIP: If you don't have red and/or white sparkling sugar, you could also decorate the outside of the Cookie Dough Cheeseball with M&M's (bonus for Christmas one) or some other Christmasy sprinkles! Get creative and have fun!
Serve and enjoy!Print
