Important Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed to make toffee cheeseball for Valentine's day.
  • Cream cheese – Use the full-fat kind that comes in blocks, not a tub.
  • Unsalted butter – Using unsalted butter gives you more control over the flavor of the recipe.
  • Powdered sugar – Also known as confectioners’ sugar.
  • Brown sugar – Brown sugar adds a caramel note to the cream cheese dip. 
  • Mini semi-sweet chocolate morsels – Mini chocolate chips mean more evenly distributed chocolate in your toffee chocolate chip cheeseball!
  • Toffee bits – While you could chop up a Heath bar, you can also just buy toffee bits from the baking section.
  • Sprinkles – Use sprinkles that fit the theme of your party!

Notes

  • If you don’t want to do sprinkles, you can also cover this in chopped nuts or additional mini chocolate chips.
  • To shape the cheeseball, unwrap the chilled mixture onto a sheet of parchment paper and shape it with your hands.
  • Adding sprinkles? Use your hands to pat them into the cheeseball so they stick.

  1. This is beautiful and sounds tasty but I’ve never heard of toffee bits before. Are they something you buy in the baking section?

    1. I buy them in the baking aisle. You can take Heath bars (or Skor bars) and chop them up instead if you can’t find the bits.

  2. I made this for my husband’s 50th surprise birthday party and it was a BIG hit! People were hesitant to eat it at first but when the first person dug in, it was full speed ahead. All I kept hearing was, “What is that!” My 17 y/o nephew made another one last night. It is addictive!!! Thanks so much; I can’t wait to try all of them….

  3. Ok this is completely out of control is the very best way possible. I’ve been seeing this all over Pinterest the past 2 days Aimee! LOVING all of these sprinkles 😉

  4. I have a weakness for dips, especially ones that have toffee and chocolate chips in them. I love the heart shape too, so cute!

  5. Aimee, are you kidding me with this cuteness?!? This is the most adorable cheeseball I’ve ever laid eyes on {wait until I get my lips around it…LOL!}. Looks amazing. I so, so wish our school allowed homemade treats…because I would totally bring this to both kids’ parties. SUPER awesome.

    1. hahha, you crack me up Kristi!! Well, if the kids can’t have it at school you just need to make it for home!

  6. I love toffee! This sounds super tasty (even if I’m way too lazy to shape this into a heart :))
