chocolate chip cheeseball.

Chocolate Chip Cheeseball from Lauren:

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened (no substitutes)
1/4 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 T packed brown sugar
3/4 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup finely chopped pecans (you can toast them for 5 minutes at 350 if you want)

Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually add sugars. Beat until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Place cream cheese mixture on a large piece of plastic wrap and shape into a ball. Refrigerate for one more hour. Roll cheese ball in pecans. Serve with graham cracker sticks.

*You can roll the cheese ball in more mini chocolate chips if you don't like nuts.
