This was great - the kids loved it as well as the adults. I melted 3/4 cup chocolate chips and added that to the cream cheese mixture then added another 3/4 cup of chocolate chips too. It was very good - even gave out the recipe to a guest at the party. Thanks Lennie!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter until fluffy.
  2. Gradually add the icing sugar, then the brown sugar, then vanilla; beat just until combined.
  3. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  5. Place cream cheese mixture on a large piece of plastic wrap and shape into a ball; it helps to put your hands under the plastic wrap to help you form it without getting your hands sticky.
  6. Place nuts in flat bowl and roll ball in pecans, trying to coat evenly.
  7. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  8. Serve with graham crackers.
