Chocolate Chip Cheese Dip

This recipe is a sweet alternative to your regular dip. It's very easy and definitely a crowd pleaser. I brought this to a brunch with a few other Marine wives and luckily I didn't have to take a lot home!

I found this on Allrecipes as a recipe for a cheeseball covered in pecans. I'm definitely not a fan of nuts and didn't have time to make it into a cheeseball so I just left it as a dip!

8oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
1/4 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbs. brown sugar
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
3/4 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)
graham crackers, chocolate graham crackers, vanilla wafers or animal crackers.

Beat softened cream cheese, butter, & vanilla until creamy. Slowly add sugars until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Place mixture in a covered container. Refrigerate for 1 -2 hours. Form into a ball and roll in pecans (optional) you can also roll the cheese ball into graham cracker crumbs or more mini chocolate chips. Serve with graham crackers, vanilla wafers or animal crackers.
