Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Note: If you go into any number of specialty shops around you can buy little bags of mixes for cheese balls like this, but it really isn't necessary when you have a recipe like this one! Perfect for inviting friends over to chat and watch a "chick flick"!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
3/4 cup miniature chocolate chips
1/2 cup pecans, chopped fine
Graham crackers


Beat cream cheese, margarine and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually add confectioners' sugar and brown sugar, and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate until firm. Shape into a ball and roll in finely chopped pecans. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve. Serve with graham crackers.

Wow, that's different. At first I was unsure but then I saw graham crackers and said "whoah, yeah!"
