Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

1 80z pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. butter softened
3/4 to 1c. confectioners' sugar
2 Tbs. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. miniature semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 c. finely choppped pecans

In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Mix in sugars and vanilla. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours or more.
Shape chilled cream cheese mixure into a ball. Wrap with plastic and chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour more.
Roll the cheese ball in finely chopped pecans before serving.

Suggested ideas for dippers: vanilla wafers, chocolate graham crackers, regular graham crackers... A SPOON! i had a weak moment on Saturday evening and tried this because I had nothing else. It wasn't as good!
