Prep time:  10 mins

Total time:  10 mins

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 package (8 ounces) Dutch Farms Cream Cheese, room temperature (You can use either, the Original Cream Cheese or ⅓ Less Fat Cream Cheese – Fat Free Cream Cheese does not hold up very well.)
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • ¼-cup powdered sugar
  • ¾-cup white chocolate chips, melted
  • 1-1/4 cup chopped nuts, divided (I used walnuts, but you can use whatever nuts you like)
  • graham crackers
  • cookies
  • assorted fruits

Cream Cheese

DIRECTIONS:

  • Line a plate with a long piece of plastic wrap and set aside.
  • In your mixer’s bowl, combine cream cheese, brown sugar and powdered sugar; beat until creamy and smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • *Add melted chocolateand ¼-cup chopped walnuts; continue to beat until thoroughly incorporated. (see NOTES for melting white chocolate)
  • Using a rubber spatula, scrape out the mixture and transfer it to the previously prepared plate lined with plastic wrap.
  • Working with the plastic wrap, wrap and shape the cream cheese mixture into a ball. (see NOTES)
  • Place the cheeseball in the freezer for about 2 to 2-1/2 hours, or until cold and firm, but NOT frozen.
  • Put the remaining chopped nuts on a plate.
  • Remove the cheese ball from the freezer and carefully unwrap.
  • Roll the cheeseball in the chopped nuts.
  • Place on a serving plate and serve with graham crackers, cookies, fruits, etc.
  • NOTES

    *Best method to melt white chocolate chips is to place them in a microwave-safe bowl, mix in a tablespoon of vegetable oil, and microwave on HIGH for 40 seconds. Remove and stir until completely melted.
    **You can continue shaping the ball while it’s in the freezer; about every 45 minutes.
