Chocolate Chip Cheeseball

The Menu:
Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

The Original Recipe:
I guess this came from Mommy's I have had this saved for awhile, and I knew that when I had that home jewelery party that I wanted to make it for the guests. It was soooo good. It was rich with the cream cheese, and savory with the chocolate. I served it with cinnamon graham crackers. It almost reminded me of a smore. I will for sure make this again. I doubled the recipe and used more brown sugar than confectioners sugar (it's a preferance).

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

1 8oz. package cream cheese

1/2 cup butter

1/4 tsp. vanilla

2 Tbsp. brown sugar

3/4 cup confectioners sugar

3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

For coating: 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans, crushed graham crackers, or 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

For dipping: Graham crackers, chocolate graham crackers, vanilla wafers, pretzel sticks, Teddy Grahams or animal crackers.

1. Beat softened cream cheese, butter, & vanilla until creamy. Slowly add sugars until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Place mixture in a Tupperware or plastic container. Refrigerate for 1 -2 hours.

2. Form into a ball and roll ball in pecans, graham cracker crumbs, or mini chocolate chips. Serve with graham crackers, vanilla wafers, Teddy Grahams, pretzels, or animal crackers.
