Okay Y’all….this is amazing. And as much as I would love to take credit for the idea of this ball of deliciousness, all due credit goes to my mother. Boy can she cook and bake up a storm-so often I’ll snag her ideas.
I needed something for a dinner party we all went to last night and I may or may not have forgotten that I would take dessert. This was perfect because it was so quick and easy to make….also seeing a theme? Other than healthy and yummy!
2 packages of Cream Cheese
Brown sugar or Coconut Sugar 1/2 cup **(I obviously use the coconut because it’s much healthier and causes very low glycemic spikes.)**
Mini Chocolate chips 1/2 cup
8oz bag of Pecans (I buy the halves and then chop them –more for my money)
Saran or cling wrap
First soften the cream cheese, mix in the Sweetner/sugar (if warm wait until cool before adding chips) Add your chocolate chips. Once all mixed together. Put it all on your cling wrap.
Try to form a ball using the sides of the wrap….then place in your freezer to harden some. After 5 min or so, unwrap the top and cover the top of the cheeseball and sides with the pecans…you can push them in some…even sprinkle some of the chocolate chips as well on top. Continue to form into a ball (or rounded top) and then cover back up and place into the refrigerator until time to serve.
When time to serve remove the saran/cling wrap and place the vanilla wafers around the dessert so that your guests can use them to dip into the ball.
