Chocolate Chip Cheeseball

*This yummy recipe originally came from my friend Amy~ you can visit her homeschool blog here and her homestead blog here. I'm going away with my Mom this evening~ to a Ladies Night Out event at her church. My Mom signed me up to bring a dessert. I'm not a huge dessert fan (unless it's pie~ which I'm not good at making!) However, I am a huge appetizer fan! This cheeseball is appetizer crossed with dessert~ making it fun to make and even more fun to eat! LOL Since I just made one, I thought I'd share the recipe:

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened (no substitutes)
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. confectioners sugar
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
3/4 c. miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 c. finely chopped pecans
Graham crackers, regular and chocolate

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