Gameday Appetizer... Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Ball
This was sooo yummy and easy to make too... Win win! It really was the perfect game day appetizer. I found the recipe off Pinterest and made a couple of alterations, here is the recipe -
8 oz. reduced fat cream cheese (room temp)
3/4 cup no stir natural peanut butter or whatever creamy peanut butter you like ( just not oily or crunchy)
1 cup powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Cream all ingredients above in a stand mixer with paddle attachment until thick and creamy.
- Pour doughy batter into a long sheet of Saran Wrap and pull all edges up to form a wrapped ball and place in the freezer for an hour and a half
- In the meantime place dark chocolate chips and peanut butter chips on a flat plate
- Once ball is firm enough roll it in the chips and then place back in the freezer for a couple hours until totally firm. You can refrigerate it then until ready to serve with pretzels, apples and/or graham crackers.
