Thanks to everyone who came out to our Holiday Open House this Saturday! We had a great time seeing familiar & new faces!
A few folks requested a recipe for the delicious dessert ball that our friend and vendor Marti ('Twice is Nice') brought. Here it is!
Chocolate Chip Dessert Cheese Ball
1 - 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup of butter, softened
1/4 cup of confectioners' sugar
2 Tbs. of brown sugar
1/4 tsp. of vanilla extract
1 cup of mini chocolate chips
1/2-3/4 cup of pecans
1/2 cup of chocolate cookies crushed or mini chocolate chips
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Gradually add sugars and vanilla; beat until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours. Remove from refrigerator and shape into a ball; roll in pecans and chocolate crushed cookies (or mini chocolate chips).
Serve with sugar cookies, butter cookies or graham crackers.
