Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball Recipe

Publisher Photo
Your guests are in for a sweet surprise when they try this unusual cheese ball…it tastes just like cookie dough! Rolled in chopped pecans, the chip-studded spread is wonderful on regular or chocolate graham crackers. I especially like it because it can be assembled in a wink. —Kelly Glascock, Syracuse, Missouri

This is so yummy. Made this for my daughters baby shower and served with baby bear graham and chocolate baby graham crackers. Also added 3/4 C peanut butter chips.

This is an awesome cheeseball, perfect for Christmas parties! I serve with chocolate graham crackers or teddy bear shaped grahams!

I love this recipe. I've used it for years and everyone loves it. I made it for a Christmas party several years ago and some of the girls spread it on my homemade chocolate chip cookies and now they won't eat it on anything else. I don't make it into a ball, but put it in a bowl so it's like a dip. Big Hit!
