Pampered Chef Recipes

The recipe for a cheese ball with chocolate chips came originally from some pampered chef recipes. There was a chocolate chip cheese ball that was super simple and can be made within 30 minutes. However, like most cheese balls, these pampered chef recipes have nuts the cheese ball with chocolate chips is rolled in.
