Prepare the cake according to directions on the box. Allow it to cool completely. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside. Transfer the cooled cake to a large bowl and use a fork to break it into fine crumbs. Add cream cheese and use your hands to combine. Roll mixture into 42 balls and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate. Melt chocolate in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each. Stir in oil and mix well. Use a fork or a toothpick to dip each red velvet ball in the chocolate and return to the prepared baking sheet. Decorate with sprinkles if desired. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until ready to serve.
