Cherry Chocolate Chip Dip

I put this together last year for a meeting at work and it was the perfect level of sweetness...not too sweet, but the perfect mix of chocolate, cherries and everything that is good. I found the recipe at brucrew.   Sweet dips are always a fun surprise.
Cherry Chocolate Chip Dip
Ingredients:  8 oz cream cheese (softened), 1/2 c. butter, 2 T cherry juice (from your jar of cherries), 1 c. powdered sugar, 1/2 c. mini chocolate chips, 1 c. pecans (chopped fine), 10 oz jar maraschino cherries (quartered), chocolate crackers for dipping
Instructions:  1.  Beat cream cheese and butter until well mixed.  Add cherry juice.  Gradually add in powdered sugar.  
2.  Mix in chocolate chips, pecans, and cherry pieces (stir gently by hand).  
3.  Chill.  Serve with graham crackers.
