I know, I know ... enough with the recipes already! We have just had a million things to attend here lately and I have been on a roll in the kitchen preparing the healthiest of snacks. Last night was our Sunday School Christmas Party and it was just sort of a finger food type deal ... my favorite - I could eat my weight in appetizers and dips! I was asked to bring dessert. I went with an old favorite, Peanut Butter Blossoms, and a new recipe that I found on Kelly's blog a while ago, a Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball.
Before removing from pan, let cookies cool.
The Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball requires a little bit more effort but not much. The ingredients are:
1 8oz. package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Mix together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add sugars and vanilla and mix. Lastly, add your chocolate chip. Refrigerate for a few hours. Form in to ball. Refrigerate for another 2 hours. Serve with graham cracker sticks.
When the Beau got home last night I asked him to taste the Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball since I had never made it before and I didn't want to bring something gross to the party. After sampling it he said, "Oh my gosh, that is so good. It tastes exactly like Dunkaroos!"
Not exactly what I was going for but that's okay!
