St. Patricks Day Cheese Ball

Phil and I are going to a St. Patrick's Day party tonight and I wanted something green to bring. I saw this recipe on Pinterest for a red velvet cheese ball and thought it sounded so good as I love everything red velvelt. The recipe called to use red vevlet cake mix in the cheese ball which is already red. So I decided to use french vanilla cake mix instead and put in some food coloring. I think it looks like a perfect St. Patrick's Day treat.
