Orange Creamsicle Cheesecake Basketball

A sweet take on a classic cheeseball, this cheesecake version is flavored with orange and tastes just like a creamsicle!

  • 16ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 12cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1tablespoon fresh orange zest
  • 2tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 12teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1cup powdered sugar
  • 3ounces orange Jell-O, mix
  • 13cup orange sprinkles
  • 13cup white chocolate chips, roughly chopped
  • 3ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions :

  1. Beat together the cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the orange zest, orange juice, vanilla, powdered sugar and orange Jell-O mix and stir until well combined. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  2. Transfer the chilled mixture to a large sheet of plastic wrap and use the wrap to help shape into a smooth ball.
  3. In a shallow dish, combine the orange sprinkles and the white chocolate. Unwrap the cheeseball and roll around in the sprinkle and chocolate mixture until evenly coated.
  4. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave and transfer to a piping bag or plastic food storage bag with the end snipped off. Pipe out the lines of the basketball. Serve with cookies, crackers, and/or fruit.
