Keri's Cookie Dough Cheese Ball

Today's recipe comes from TAA reader Keri. Her Cookie Dough Cheese Ball with Cinnamon Chips looks absolutely mouthwatering and it couldn't be easier...check it out...

I found this recipe and I had to share it with you. It's quick, easy, and absolutely delish! People cannot get enough of this dessert. Every time I make it - it's gone in a matter of minutes!!! I tend to not roll it into a ball, but shape it in a bowl and refrigerate over night. The next day I slide it onto a pretty plate and combine with homemade cinnamon chips (which are "heavenly" according to one of my customers!) I've attached a few before pictures. I was not able to get any after pictures bc there was nothing left to photograph!!! -Keri K.
 

Cookie Dough Cheese Ball
8 oz pkg cream cheese (softened)
1/2 C butter
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 C powered sugar
3 tbsp brown sugar (packed)
1 C mini semi sweet chocolate chips
1 C pecans (finely chopped)

Blend together the first 3 ingredients until creamy; add powered sugar and brown sugar, blending well.  Fold in chocolate chips; cover and refrigerate 3 to 4 hours. Shape dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and refridgerate again until firm.  Roll in/pack on pecans before serving.
 
Cinnamon Chips
1 C sugar
1 to 2 tsp cinnamon
10 (10 inch) uncooked flour tortillas (I use the 8 in uncooked tortillas - if you cannot find uncooked, you can use cooked tortillas, but they will not be as crispy)
Butter flavored non stick spray
 
Butter spray tortillas (both sides) and use pizza cutter to slice in wedges.
Mix sugar & cinnamon together. Dip coated wedges into cinnamon sugar mixture and place on baking sheet in a single layer. Bake at 350 for 8 - 10 minutes. They will not be crispy at first. Store in airtight container after cooling (about 15 minutes).

Didn't Keri do an amazing job? This recipe is good enough to eat and I love her super chic presentation and photos. I have a picnic next week and I can't wait to bring this dessert to share! Oh, and in case you want more of Keri's creations, check out her Easter Chick Cake Pops!
