Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Maybe it's just me, but I had never heard of a dessert cheeseball until I heard about this one at cooking club.  I tried it for an ugly sweater party we had last week, and it is awesome!  It just tastes like a really yummy cream cheese frosting with chocolate chips and nuts.  Thanks to Jenny Snow for submitting this one!  SO GOOD!  Trust me....

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup finely chopped pecans

In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Mix in confectioners sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover, and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Shape chilled cream cheese mixture into a ball. Wrap with plastic wrap, and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Roll the cheese ball in finely chopped nuts before serving. Serve with Chocolate or Honey graham cracker sticks.
