It’s time to bring the best party food to share with friends with this Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Ball!
During the holidays bringing a dessert is just a given for any holiday party, the best dessert can actually be the easiest.
This Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Ball is a favorite around here and it’s also no-bake! That’s right, you can prep it the night before and it’s ready to go for your party.
We started making this many years ago and have since grown to have it as a staple at parties, it’s perfect for sharing. I like to pair ours with a variety of dipping choices too.
Tips for Making Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Ball
This needs to be refrigerated, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time to make it so you can get it nice and chilled in the fridge.
It’s best to whip it up in a stand mixer, it’s simply easier that way but you can do it by hand if you prefer too.
What should you serve with Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Ball?
We love to serve ours with festive cookies that fit the holidays like gingerbread or shortcake cookies. If you are making this year round, I like to do this with graham crackers both the traditional and chocolate.
If you are making it gluten-free, it’s simple to just stick with a gluten free graham cracker or cookie for dipping.
