Red Velvet Cheese Ball

There are only two words I can think of to describe this cheese ball. YUM! YUM! It's a bit like eating a gooey red velvet cake on a nilla wafer. Ok, so maybe that description doesn't truly do it justice, but honestly it's amazing! I'm sure my co-workers probably won't complain that I'm bringing it in. ;)
I'm glad it's already rolled in the chocolate chips, cause let me tell you...it would be too tempting to get a spoon and eat my way through it. Yes...it's THAT good!!! Once I rolled it in the chips, I knew the temptation to eat it all would be gone, because I'm fairly sure that my co-workers would notice a huge chunk gone that was no longer coated in chips! So I guess I will have to wait for tomorrow to have more.
