Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

My husband loves cheese, and I am not a huge fan, so for New Year’s last year we settled on a Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball which has cream cheese instead of regular cheese and is a much sweeter version of traditional cheese balls…Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball @ whatilivefor.net

Here’s what you need to make your own…

  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate morsels (or 3/4 cup chopped chocolate chips)
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  1. In a medium bowl, cream together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add powdered sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  2. Take the cheese mixture and shape it into a ball. Wrap the ball in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Roll your cheese ball in the chopped pecans before serving.

The recipe says this makes 32 servings. This would be perfect for a New Year’s Eve party. Serve this with graham crackers, or vanilla wafers, or other sweet crackers and enjoy!
