Before adding the cake mix, it is important to heat treat the dry cake mix. Pour the dry cake mix into a medium-size heat-safe bowl. Microwave the cake mix in two 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval. Allow the cake mix to cool completely before mixing into the cream cheese.
Using a medium-size mixing bowl and a handheld mixer on medium-high speed, beat the cream cheese for 2 to 2 ½ minutes until completely smooth.
Sprinkle the dry cake mix over the top of the cream cheese. Continue to mix just until the dry cake mix is well incorporated.
Tightly cover the cream cheese mixture and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set it aside.
Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the cheesecake dough. Roll into a ball and set the cheesecake bites onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat the steps.
Using a heat-safe medium-size mixing bowl, heat the almond bark in the microwave in 30-second intervals until the almond bark is completely melted and smooth.
Roll the cheesecake bites in the melted almond bark. Place the coated cheesecake bites on the fork and gently tap any excess coating off. You can also use the spoon to pour the almond bark over any bare spots on the cheesecake bites.
Return the coated cheesecake bites on the prepared baking sheet, and sprinkle ½ to 1 teaspoon of the colorful sprinkles on top.
Once all the cheesecake bites are completely coated and sprinkled, return them to the refrigerator until ready to serve.
PRO TIP:Make sure you are using room-temperature cream cheese so that you don't end up with lumps in your mini cheesecake bites.PRO TIP:You can allow the uncoated cheesecake bites to sit overnight in the refrigerator before the next step. The cake mix will expand, and the almond bark may crack if you coat the bites too soon.PRO TIP: If you would prefer to use white or milk chocolate to coat the bites, you can melt them the same way in the microwave in place of the almond bark.
