Chocolate Chip Cheeseball

Chocolate Chip Cheeseball

Heaven on a plate.

My tummy’s delight.

Best stuff I’ve eaten all decade.

That pretty much sums up this chocolate chip cheeseball.

Chocolate Chip Cheeseball

The idea of a sweet, desserty cheeseball has been on my mind lately and after perusing the internet and basically finding one main recipe out there for a chocolate chip cheeseball, I came up with my own version, since, sorry, even though it is dessert, I couldn’t stomach the thought of adding an entire stick of butter to the mix, also.

The end result is such a creamy, decadent, and utterly refreshing concoction that I am already scheduling in the ways I can make this at least daily for the next year.

Chocolate Chip Cheeseball

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces cream cheese, light or regular, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 cup crushed chocolate cookies, like chocolate teddy grahams or oreos, for rolling

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, vanilla, powdered sugar and brown sugar until well mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours to give the mixture time to firm up a little bit.
  2. Place the crushed cookies on a dinner plate or shallow pie plate. Using lightly greased hands, mold the cream cheese mixture into a ball. Even after chilling it will be slightly soft so don’t worry if this part gets a little messy. Drop the ball into the crushed cookies and roll around and/or scoop up the crushed cookies and lightly press them into the cheeseball.
  3. Place the cheeseball on a serving platter and cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with graham crackers, pretzels, apples, chocolate cookies or whatever your little heart desires!
