Easy Appetizers - Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

My mom taught me how to make this easy appetizer.  The name sounds horrible, but it's terribly addicting!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

8 oz cream cheese, softened

½  c butter, softened

¼ t vanilla extract

¾ c confectioner’s sugar

2 T brown sugar

¾ c miniature semisweet chocolate chips

¾ c finely chopped pecans

cinnamon graham crackers

1.      In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla ‘til fluffy.  Gradually add sugars; beat just until combined.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Cover and refrigerate 2 hours.

2.      Place mixture on a large piece of plastic wrap; shape into a ball.  Refrigerate at least 1 hour.

3.      Just before serving, roll cheese ball in pecans.  Serve with graham crackers.
