Simple Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Makes: 1 8 oz cheeseball

Description: This is an excellent cheese ball that can also be used as a dip as well if you don't want to go through the trouble of forming it into a ball. Every time I take this to a social function I am always asked by the guests for the recipe. Its a real hit!

8 oz package  cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup  butter, softened
3/4 cup  confectioners' sugar
2 tbsp.  brown sugar
1/4 tsp  vanilla extract
3/4 cup  miniature semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup  finely chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Instructions: 1. 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.
2. Shape chilled cream cheese mixture into a ball. Wrap with plastic, and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
3. Roll the cheese ball in finely chopped pecans before serving if desired, although I usually leave mine plain without the nuts.

I use graham sticks or vanilla wafers to dip, but you could use a little knife and spread on any type of cookie or regular graham crackers, or even fruit slices such as apples.
