Chocolate Chip Cheeseball

I made this for a couples baby shower last weekend. Everyone loved it so I thought I would share. I got this recipe from my mom. I have no idea where she got it. So, I cannot give credit where credit is due.

1 8 oz. package cream cheese softened in the weather we have been having lately...it is soft enough just from the journey home...but I do live 30 minutes from the grocery store
1/2 cup butter (no substitutes---now you know it will be good) softened
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup confetioners sugar
2 tbsps brown sugar
3/4 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cups finely chopped pecans
graham crackers

In a mixing 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 chees mixture on a large piece of plastic wrap; shape into a ball. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Just before serving, roll cheese ball in pecans. Serve with graham crackers.

I must apologize. You will love me. You will hate me. Make sure you have people over so you don't eat it all by yourself...unless you want to.

Yum! I think I'll try this rolled in chocolate chips for my little allergy-prone one, but this looks awesome! Thanks for sharing!
