Yummy Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

(not my picture...but how pretty it is)

"A sweet switch from the usual cheese ball. Cream cheese and butter are sweetened and blended with miniature chocolate chips, then rolled in chopped pecans."


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese,


1/2 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup confectioners' sugar 2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

3/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

3/4 cup finely chopped pecans


1. In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Mix in confectioners' sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover, and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

2. Shape chilled cream cheese mixture into a ball. Wrap with plastic, and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

3. Roll the cheese ball in finely chopped pecans or toss on mini chocolate chips before serving.

Good served with Nilla Wafers or Graham Crackers
