Holiday Appetizers 101: Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheeseball.
Still not receiving my updates since I switched domains? Please update your google readers! http://feeds.feedburner.com/howsweeteats/smSp
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!

Oh dear, that sounds delicious!
Um. Hello. Cream cheese + peanut butter + sugar + graham crackers? It would get DEVOURED in my house.. especially if I rolled it in pretzel crumbs instead of crackers lol.
you’re so creative! I would never think to do something like this. It looks great!
Seriously? A chocolate peanut butter cheeseball? That is be best idea EVER! Droooool.
Mmmm! And these can serve a dual purpose. I’ll eat most. Then hurl the rest at Husband if he refuses to rub my feet again.
I once threw a table at him, but it was an accident. (he’s a really great guy. honest)

Very unique for sure. Cheese…love it, PB…love it, chocolate…very tasty….sounds like a winning combo to me! And something different too! Happy Wednesday

This sounds so so good. I like to mix a tablespoon of white chocolate wonderful peanut butter with cream cheese and that’s amazing, so I can only imagine how much better it would be with chocolate chips and in a whole ball form :-D
mmmm. reminds me of a sandwich at Peanut Butter & Co. in NY. I want to make this and spread it on a bagel and eat, eat, eat!
All those ingredients sound delicious so of course I’d think the end result would be. Mmm add some marshmallows and it’d be a smores ball!
You’re forgiven – no doubt those delicious gems would be eaten up quickly! :)
