Chocolate-Chip Cheeseball

I made this chocolate-chip cheeseball for cooking club this week. It tastes like a cheesecake. It's super easy and really delicious! It's a nice twist on a cheeseball.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
½ cup butter (no substitute), softened
¼ tsp vanilla
¾ cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp brown sugar
¾ cup miniature semi sweet chocolate chips
¾ cup pecans, finely chopped

In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually add sugars, beat until just combined. Stir in chips. Cover & refrigerate for 2 hours. Place cream cheese mixture on a large piece of plastic wrap & shape into a ball. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Just before serving, roll cheese ball in pecans. Serve with graham crackers.

You know... I have had a recipe for a chocolate chip cheeseball sitting in my dessert file for a very long time! I'm happy to see that it was a hit. I'll have to give it a shot too :)
