We never grow tired of funfetti desserts. The buttery-vanilla flavor combined with the bright rainbow jimmies makes any person happier. That's why when I came across this pin for a funfetti cheese ball, I knew I had to try it at home. Traditionally made with cream cheese, cheese balls are usually savory, and this funfetti version errs on the tart side. It reminds me of cheesecake filling, so it's perfect for sweet Nilla Wafers . . . or salty Club crackers, if you're open to flavor experimentation.

Before getting started, here's what you'll need:

  • 7 ounces plain cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups yellow cake mix
  • 1/4 cup rainbow jimmies, plus more for coating
  • 1 box of Nilla Wafers for dipping
