Can a cheeseball be a dessert?  I say yes.  I love a good sweet cheeseball for snacking.  My sister in law Jessica makes a fabulous Chocolate Chip CheeseballChocolate Chip Cheeseball, it satisfies every sweet tooth.  She made it this past weekend for a baby shower we were hosting for our other sister in law, Jenny.  I noticed all throughout the party that there was always someone hovering over the Chocolate Chip Cheeseball (myself included).  It was as if there were some magical secret ingredient that made it highly addictive and made it impossible to walk away from.  It was delicious!  And Jess has said that I can share her tasty recipe with my readers!  Enjoy!
