CHEESECAKE CHEESE BALL

Butter With A Side of Bread Cheesecake Cheese Ball
I found this recipe recently and was so excited because I LOVE cheesecake, but don’t always have the time to make one.  You can make this Cheesecake Cheese Ball in only a few short minutes, and with only a few ingredients!  I haven’t ventured beyond graham crackers and strawberries for my dippers, but you could probably dip just about anything and it would taste fabulous too!
Cheesecake Cheese Ball
1/2 cup butter
8 oz. cream cheese
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1+ cups mini chocolate chips (divided in half)

Mix everything together, but save half of your chocolate chips for later.  I put about 1/2 cup in my mixture, but you can definitely add more!  Refrigerate this mixture for about 4 hours (I made this in the evening, so I actually ended up leaving it in the fridge overnight).
Roll the mixture into a ball.  This is surprisingly easy-it only took about a minute to shape it with my hands.  Roll the ball into the other half of the chocolate chips.  Again, you can use as many as you’d like, but I used about 1/2 cup.  I just poured them on a plate and then rolled the ball around until it was well coated.

The original recipe said to refrigerate overnight before serving, but I served mine right away and it was wonderful!  I like recipes that you can make in advance though, because it saves a lot of time and stress when you don’t have to make everything at the last minute when hosting or attending a dinner or party. Enjoy!
