Peanut Butter Cheeseball

Here is another wonderful recipe I made for our Gingerbread House Making Party this year. It is another pinterest discovered recipe that I have begun sharing (first was the Cajun Shrimp and Rice). How can you go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate?!


Peanut Butter Cheeseball
from The Girl Who Ate Everything
Ingredients:
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temperature - I used reduced fat
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (not all-natural)
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter chips
Foods for dipping

Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar in large mixer bowl until blended. Spoon onto a large piece of plastic wrap; bring up all four corners and twist tightly forming into a ball shape (or as close to that as possible).

Freeze for 1 hour 30 minutes or until firm enough to keep its shape or see what I did at the bottom of the post to make ahead of time. Place peanut butter and chocolate chips on wax paper. Remove plastic wrap from ball and roll ball into morsels to completely cover, pressing morsels into the ball if necessary - was necessary for me since I wanted as many morsels as possible.
Place ball on serving dish or in tupperware. Cover and refridgerate for 2 hours or until almost firm.


Serve with cookies, fruit, pretzels, graham crackers. I really wanted to use those graham cracker sticks but could not find them at walmart, bi-lo or the teet.... so regular sized ones broken in had to do.


I made this 2 days before the party and left it in the fridge but then rolled it in the chips 1 day before and took it out of the fridge about 20 min before serving. If you wanted to make it further in advance it would freeze easily.
It was a party favorite! One it starts getting eaten and softens more it isn't as pretty but still tastes great! Would be perfect to serve at a Super Bowl party or Wine and appetizer party or really an excuse you can think of to make it :)

Linking up at these fun parties:
