Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball Recipe

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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 21, 2014

"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!"
