Mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Ball

Nothing beats a homemade treat. The thought of the person you love going through all the effort just to please you on a once-in-a-year event is heavenly enough, the scrumptiousness of the gift is just a bonus.

I don't know about you, but Valentine's Day is a big deal to me. Every 14th of February, I always make it a point to do something worth remembering, worth seeing on photos. No, actually, just worth remembering. It doesn't have to be grandiose, though, just memorable.

However, my Valentine's Day always comes with a treat, be it food, flowers, or sweet treats. Yes, this year, I will be big on sweet treats! While I have a couple weeks left to wait, it's good to have it planned by now. I'm not big on spontaneity, I like planning, so here goes a recipe which I might have to include in my Valentine's Day "plan". :)

Mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Ball

• 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
• 1/2 cup butter, softened
• 3/4 cup powdered sugar
• 2 tablespoons brown sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
• 3/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
• 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans

Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.Shape chilled cream cheese mixture into a ball. Wrap with plastic, and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour or overnight.

with chocolate graham crackers.

Enjoy! :)
