  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 TB Brown Sugar
  • 1 package mini chocolate chips
  • small handful white chocolate chips
  • graham crackers vanilla wafers, and pretzels for serving


  • Beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla in a medium sized bowl until fluffy. Add sugar and beat until combined. Stir in 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate for two hours.
  • If making a football shaped cheesecake ball, line the inside of the bowl of your choice with plastic wrap then fill with mixture. Cover the top with plastic wrap. If you are not using a bowl, simply place the mixture on a large piece of plastic wrap and shape into a ball. Refrigerate for a least an hour.
  • To decorate and serve, remove plastic wrap from the top of bowl and invert cheesecake ball onto serving platter. Remove remaining plastic wrap. If you are not using a bowl, remove plastic wrap and serve as a ball, or use your hands to make into football shape.
  • Decorate by covering cheesecake ball with remaining mini chocolate chips. To add accents to resemble "football laces", add in white chocolate chips to the center and top sides.
  • Serve with graham crackers, vanilla wafers, and pretzels.
