Like chocolate chip cheesecake, only easier.
Gather up your ingredients:
Santa begged me to be in the picture. He’s old. He has no beard because my sister and I used to rub the soft little beard when we were little and now the beard is just gone. He was part of a salt and pepper set that belonged to my Grandma.
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbs. brown sugar
3/4 cup miniature chocolate chips (plus some for the outside)
Cream the cream cheese and butter together with the vanilla. Gradually, add the sugars and mix until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Place the mixture onto a piece of plastic wrap, shape into a ball and refrigerate. Roll in more chocolate chips (or chopped pecans, if you like).
I make 2 small cheeseballs, but you could make just one big one.
