Chocolate Chip Cheeseball

I was asked to bring this to Julia’s baby shower on Saturday. Kind of makes a person feel famous to make the item that everyone wants the recipe for. ūüôā I did a double recipe for the shower, and used half margarine, half butter. If I was doing a single recipe, I’d use all butter – just because the only thing I like about margarine is the price.

 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. margarine, soft
1/4 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. powdered sugar
2 T. brown sugar
3/4 c. mini chocolate chips
3/4 c. pecans, finely chopped. 
 
In mixing bowl beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually
add sugars; beat just till combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and
refrigerate 2 hours. Place mixture on large sheet of plastic wrap. Shape
into a ball. Refrigerate at least l hour. Just before serving, sprinkle on pecans and press in gently. Serve with graham crackers, regular or chocolate.

    This is good! You made it once at a youth (or was it young adult?) retreat, and we ate it in the chapel. It was quite a long time ago, but I still remember it well. Mmmmm.
