This is another recipe that I got from Mommy's Kitchen. I was trying to use some left over cream cheese I had in the fridge and make something sweet for my little candy-loving kids!
Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball
1 pkg 8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup butter not margarine (I think I used margarine...oops)
1/4 tsp vanilla
2 tbs brown sugar
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips (I used the normal sized semi sweet chips)
Graham crackers, chocolate graham crackers, vanilla wafers or animal crackers.
Beat softened cream cheese, btter and vanilla until creamy. Slowly add sugars until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Place mixture in tupperware and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours. Form into a ball and roll ball into chopped pecans (optional). You can also roll the ball in crumbled graham crackers or more chocolate chips (I did not do either of those things). Serve with graham crackers, vanilla wafers or animal crackers.
I was surprised, because although this was sweet, it definitely had a cream cheese taste to it - and I was worried my 7 year old wouldn't like the mixture of cream cheese and chocolate. But, she did and it was a hit.
