I came up with this concoction, hoping it would taste okay.

 

I added cream cheese, peanut butter, and powdered sugar together.

I was hesitant to use a natural peanut butter because I didn’t want this to come out ‘oily.’ I used Skippy Natural (which is my mind, isn’t really natural) and it worked perfectly. I would suggest a creamier peanut butter – it would probably be incredible with Dark Chocolate Dreams!

 

 

I threw in a few handfuls of chocolate chips. After multiple binges tastings, I decided it needed a bit more sugar, too.

Doesn’t it looks like cookie dough? It even kind of resembles the cookie dough truffle mix. Either way, I still inhaled some.

I rolled it into a ball and threw it in the fridge to set.

 

 

After crushing some graham crackers, I rolled the cheeseball through them for a topping.

I didn’t expect my husband, most men, or even my mom to enjoy this – at least not more than one taste. It wasn’t very sweet, but I was not sure how the idea of a chocolate-peanut butter appetizer would go down.

 

I was wrong, and it got devoured. Even my husband ate it up!

Sorry for the lack of ‘inside’ pictures, but this got eaten way too quickly. And this time, it wasn’t just me eating it. Ahh…full, bloated bellies love company.
