This is a recipe from Allrecipes.com. I have made it by using the review's suggestion about covering it with mini chocolate chips instead of pecans and it was wonderful that way too!

    8 oz size cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c
    butter, softened

    confectioners' sugar

    brown sugar

    **Reviews suggested rolling in mini chocolate chips instead of pecans or serve as a dip instead of a ball. Serve with graham crackers or sticks, or vanilla wafers.
