I grabbed this from a recipe book at my mother's when I was raiding her cookbook collection. It sounds like it could be good for a party and is a change from the savory cheese balls. The book suggests serving it with ginger snaps and vanilla wafers. Cooking time does not include overnight chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon almond flavoring
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag mini chocolate chips
  • 34 cup sliced almonds

Directions

  1. Toast almonds in a skillet briefly while stirring constantly to keep from burning.
  2. Mix all ingredients, except almonds, together.
  3. Form into a large cheese ball or two small ones.
  4. Roll in almonds.
  5. Refrigerate overnight.
