Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

When you first see this little treat you are confused it looks like a regular cheese ball from the outside and you wonder why there is chocolate graham crackers & vanilla waffers surrounding it instead of the salty crackers you are accustomed to, on closer inspection you find that there is chocolate in the cheese ball, apprehensively you take a cracker and spread some cheesy delight on top of it, you take one bite and you are sold.  Addicted to this thing they call the chocolate chip cheese ball!  Try it. Love it. Crave it. Can't get enough!
