While many are spending this month baking cookies (and stressing about cookie exchanges), we like to keep it simple at our house. We love cooking and baking together, but we prefer to keep our holiday relaxed. We choose to attend one or two parties and keep our recipes simple while delicious.

This Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball has all the flavors and texture of a fancy cheesecake but is party-friendly, and it’s the perfect dessert to bring to a family gathering this winter. You can even jazz up your football-watching days with it!
