Cheesecake on a Cracker


Post by community member:

I was absolutely taken with this recipe as soon as I saw it. Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Ball. I love cream cheese. I love chocolate. I love cheese balls and the notion of a sweet cheese ball had never occurred to me before. I love fresh, unusual ways to put together delicious ingredients.

To top it off, this is so EASY to make.

I made some super-rich French-style (heavy cream) cream cheese a few days ago, so I used that, but any kind of cream cheese would do.

How to make a Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Ball:

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
walnuts, chopped (optional)

Mix cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until fluffy. You could use an electric mixer, but I had no trouble stirring it up with a big spoon.

Add sugars and chocolate chips and form into ball.

At this point, I put the bowl in the fridge, before forming the ball. I softened my cream cheese and butter up too much and I wanted to stiffen it up some before I shaped it. You could also just sit down and eat this like it’s a bowl of ice cream, because it’s that good. BUT DON’T. Well, unless you want to. Who am I to stand in your way?

Having restrained myself from eating the whole bowl with a spoon (I’m trying to set a good example here!), I left it in the fridge for about an hour then shaped it into a ball.

You could go ahead and serve it as is, but I wanted to add something extra and rolled the ball in chopped walnuts. Wrap in plastic and chill for at least two hours. Serve with graham crackers.

This is divine and if you take it to a party, everyone will want the recipe. It tastes like cheesecake on a cracker!!! For a different flavor, you could use mini butterscotch chips or minced dried fruit, too.

    Oh my! That looks and sounds sooooo good!

    This sounds great. I’ve had a sweet pineapple cheeseball on graham crackers that knocked my sox off. I should try and find that recipe.

    Ohhh Anita I know that one 🙂 Not really a ‘recipe’, just cream cheese, drained crushed pineapple and for me, I add sweet onion and bell pepper, finely diced. A dash of seasoned salt. Killer. For the graham crackers just add the pineapple?

    Seems it might need a little sweetening, but the mix of sweet and onion/salt is what makes it great (in my opinion).

    We make this one and use regular and chocolate animal crackers with it. Graham crackers are good too!

    oh my! keeping this in mind for 4th of july!

    I put in to the recipes a couple of spreads that I use on bagels – cinnamon and an orange one. I never thought about it, but the recipes are similar and they could easily be used for a cheese ball!! My kids love eating them straight up – can’t believe that I didn’t link it to a straight up cracker spread. YUMMERS – now 3 variations that have a different base.

    Wow – want to make this right now, but since I don’t think the cat is interested in it I’ll have to wait for witnesses…

    Oh, animal crackers would be great! They’re good with a cinnamon spread, too.

    That looks soooo good!

    That looks DELICIOUS.

    Ok…I’m now starving and have NONE of those ingredients currently!!! I see a grocery trip on the horizon!
