Better Than...Cookie Dough Cheeseball

I have always looked at cheeseballs in a turned-up-nose fashion. I've started to open my mind to more foods lately and figured I need to join in the cheeseball lover's club. I started off with my tippy toes in the water here though. I honestly don't think there is anything in the world that has both butter and cookie dough in it that I wouldn't eat.

I mixed this together and my cookie dough was still a little firm, so I had it sit for a little longer. While it sat, I tried not to consume the whole bowl full. I gave my husband (the dessert hater - well, he doesn't hate desserts, he just claims to not be "big" on them) a small taste, which then in turn he took my mixing spoon and ate a huge glob of it. I then had to hover over the bowl like a vulture, trying to protect the rest of my precious unfinished dessert. I hope some of y'all can make this soon and agree that it has to be the best cheeseball in the history of cheeseballs.
