Red Velvet Cheesecake Bites Ingredients

Red Velvet Cheesecake Bites raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 (15.25-ounce) box of red velvet cake mix
  • 1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
  • 12 ounces white almond bark
  • ¾ cup red candy melts (optional stripping garnish)

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

COATING: You could also roll these mini red velvet cheesecake cake balls in powdered sugar, cocoa powder, cake mix, graham cracker crumbs, crushed Oreo cookies, or colorful sprinkles.

How to Make This Red Velvet Cheesecake Bites Recipe

STEP ONE: It is important to heat treat the dry cake mix before adding it to the cream cheese. Add the dry cake mix into a medium-sized heat-safe bowl. Microwave the dry cake mix in two 30-second intervals, stirring well after each interval. Allow the cake mix to completely cool before mixing into the cream cheese.

STEP TWO: Using a medium-sized mixing bowl and an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat cream cheese for 1½ to 2 minutes until completely smooth.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature to avoid lumps in the cream cheese mixture.

STEP THREE: Sprinkle the cooled, dry red velvet cake mix over the top of the cream cheese. Continue mixing just until well incorporated.

STEP FOUR: Tightly cover the cheesecake dough and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

STEP FIVE: Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.

STEP SIX: Use a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop and scoop 1 tablespoon of the cheesecake mixture. Roll the dough into a ball and set it on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat the steps.

STEP SEVEN: Using a heat-safe medium-sized mixing bowl, add the white almond bark and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring well after each interval until completely melted and smooth.

STEP EIGHT: Roll the cheesecake balls in the melted almond bark. Place the coated bite onto a fork and gently tap to remove any excess coating. You can use a spoon to pour the coating over any bare spots. Use a toothpick to gently push the coated bite onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat the process.

PRO TIP:

If the coating becomes too thick, you can reheat it in the microwave for 15-second intervals, stirring well after each interval until smooth.

STEP NINE: Add the red candy melts to a small heat-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring well after each interval until completely melted and smooth.

STEP TEN: Lightly drizzle the melted candy melts in stripes over the top of the cheesecake bites. Allow the cheesecake bites coating to completely harden before serving.

PRO TIP:

You can use a squeeze bottle, drizzling spoon, or even a fork to drizzle the melted candy melts over the top of the coated cheesecake bites.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why do I have to microwave the cake mix?

Since the cake mix has uncooked flour in it that may have pathogens in it, it makes it unsafe to consume raw. Heating it in the microwave will kill any pathogens and make it safe to use in this no-bake red velvet cake balls recipe.

What are good options for coating cheesecake bites?

Powdered sugar, crushed graham crackers, sprinkles, nuts, and melted chocolate are all great options for coating your no-bake cheesecake bites.

Should these red velvet cream cheese balls be served cold or at room temperature?

These little red velvet cheesecake balls should always be served chilled, so keep them in the fridge until you are about ready to serve them.
