I have always loved to entertain but AK (after kids) my entertaining strategies have definitely changed. We swapped our wine parties and fancy-pants elaborate dinners for more brunches because that's what fits our lifestyle. And you know what? It's even more fabulous and fun! Brunch is one of my favorite ways to entertain because it's easy & inexpensive and a 2:00 p.m. start time is totally acceptable—perfect for those with little ones who have an early bedtime.
I love brunch, and it's the little touches that make it really special like this chocolate pecan cream cheese. That's right. I said it! Chocolate. Pecan. Cream. Cheese. I know. I know! Too much goodness in one teeny tiny recipe. It's true! This stuff is deelicious and so cool because it's made by melting up leftover chocolate. Genius, if I do say so myself. The chocolate cream cheese with pecans recipe is so easy even the kiddies can help make it. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a hot cup of joe with a bagel with this crazy-good chocolate pecan schmear.
