Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) Dutch Farms Cream Cheese, room temperature (You can use either, the Original Cream Cheese or 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese - Fat Free Cream Cheese does not hold up very well.)
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/4- cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4- 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

Instructions

  1. Line a round plate with a long piece of plastic wrap and set aside.
  2. In your mixer's bowl, combine cream cheese, brown sugar and powdered sugar; beat until creamy and smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. *Add melted chocolate and 1/4-cup chopped walnuts; continue to beat until thoroughly incorporated. (see my NOTES for melting white chocolate)
  4. Using a rubber spatula, scrape out the mixture and transfer it to the previously prepared plate lined with plastic wrap.
  5. **Working with the plastic wrap, wrap and shape the cream cheese mixture into a ball. (see my NOTES)
  6. Place the cheeseball in the freezer for about 2 to 2-1/2 hours, or until cold and firm, but NOT frozen.
  7. Put the remaining chopped nuts on a plate.
  8. Remove the cheese ball from the freezer and carefully unwrap.
  9. Roll the cheeseball in the chopped nuts.
  10. Place on a serving plate and serve with graham crackers, cookies, fruits, etc...

Recipe 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.
*I find it easier to continue shaping the ball while it's in the freezer; about every 45 minutes.
