You just mix up the cream cheese and the pastrami and eat this on crackers or you could use celery sticks or dip carrot sticks into it as a dip.

Cream together all ingredients. Separate into three sections, roll into ball with floured hands or gloves. Roll each ball into one of these three ingredients: course cracked pepper, minced fresh parsley, and finely chopped pecans. Chill one hour in covered container.

I like to use cream cheese because it is so easy to work with! Of course, with picky eaters, it is best to make a part of the cheese ball without anything other than the cream cheese and pineapple.

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A SWEET CHEESE BALL OR DIP DO THIS,---FOR DIP, SOFTEN AND WHIP CREAM CHEESE WITH ORANGE FLAVORED TANG DRINK MIX, THIN WITH A LITTLE MILK AS YOU WHIP. FOR CHEESE BALL, MIX CREAM CHEESE WITH SHREDDED AMERICAN OR CHEDDAR CHEESE AND TANG.ADD SOME POWDERED SUGAR TO EITHER IF NOT AS SWEET AS YOU WANT. FOR A NON SWEET CHEESE BALL, USE ORANGE ZEST IN THE CHEESE MIXTURE AND A FEW DROPS ORANGE FLAVORING OR KOOLAID( DRY OF COURSE.)THIS IS GOOD WITH CHOPPED DRIED CRANBERRIES AND FINELY CHOPPED WALNUTS EITHER SWEET OR NON SWEET.

This recipe is my family's favorite and I've given out the recipe many times. Not very low-cal but delicious!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

1 8oz pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter (no substitutes)
1/4 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp brown sugar
3/4 cup mini chocolate or cinnamon chips (reg size is okay too)
3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually add sugars; beat just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours. Shape into a ball and refrigerate again until you can roll it in the nuts.
(i just put it in a bowl and sprinkle the nuts on top)

Serve with regular, chocolate or cinnamon graham crackers. The new graham sticks work well also.

Enjoy!
