Chocolate Chip Cheeseball

My good friend Jodi brought this to a faculty party when I worked at Parkview School. She brought regular graham crackers to serve with it all those years ago, but now you can buy graham cracker sticks that are perfect for dipping. You can also serve this with gingersnaps, Nilla Wafers or even strawberries or bananas.

1 pkg. cream cheese (softened)
1/2 c. real butter (softened)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. powdered sugar
2 T. brown sugar
3/4 c. mini chocolate chips
3/4 c. chopped pecans

Mix the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, powdered sugar, brown sugar and chocolate chips. Put mixture into fridge and refrigerate for 2 hours. Spoon the mixture onto the center of a big sheet of plastic wrap and then carefully wrap up and shape into a ball. Refrigerate for 1 more hour. Roll in chopped pecans and then wrap in a fresh sheet of plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
