This sweet indulgence has become a New Year's Eve tradition for our family. I've also brought it to parties and meetings and gotten rave reviews. (Adapted from Allrecipes.com)

Oh wow, this is such a good, sweet appetizer! I just can't think of any better way to put it. You may be tempted to just use your finger for tasting, but we recommend serving with graham crackers. The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

1 pkg
(8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
1/2 c
butter, softened (do not use margarine)
3/4 c

2-3 Tbsp
brown sugar
1 tsp

How to Make Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Step-by-Step

  • 1In mixer, beat cream cheese and butter until creamy. Add sugars and vanilla and mix until well-combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Gather cold mixture into a ball and cover with plastic wrap. Chill another hour. Roll ball in pecans just before serving.
  • 2Usually, I skip the ball stage and serve this as a spread without the pecans. It's great on chocolate, cinnamon and honey graham crackers, vanilla wafers, shortbread or butter cookies.
