Heaven in a Ball

I've been dying to share this recipe with y'all this week after one of my girlfriends made this for a bridal shower we had last week. Christi I hope you don't mind I am posting this recipe, but I'm giving you all the credit! I had absolutely nothing to do with finding this recipe or making it, I simply just enjoyed the heck out of it on Saturday night. Here's my analogy to describe how delicious this recipe is: If heaven was a chocolate chip cheese ball this would be it!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

3/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

3/4 cup finely chopped pecans


In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Mix in confectioners' sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover, and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Shape chilled cream cheese mixture into a ball. Wrap with plastic, and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Roll the cheese ball in finely chopped pecans before serving.

Christi served this with Wheat Thins and it was delicious!
