Pinterest Project ONE of MANY

I am sure many of you have seen this on Pinterest and if you are a Peanut Butter LOVER like me, you were probably thinking like me... this was a "MUST TRY". I conquered this one on last year on Christmas Eve. We were going to my "grandparent-in-laws" house and i wanted to take something to show off my newly acquired domestication skills:)

I give credit where credit is due and this is the recipe i followed -  the-girl-who-ate-everything. She has great pictures of step by step instructions. Instead of using milk chocolate chips, i used white chocolate chips....MMMM (great substitution)

Peanut Butter "Cheese Ball"

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (not all-natural)
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips or White Chocolate Chips:)
3/4 cup peanut butter chips
Graham cracker sticks, teddy grahams, and/or apple slices 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.

Freeze for 1 hour 30 minutes or until firm enough to keep its shape. Place peanut butter and chocolate chips in flat dish (I used a cookite sheet). Remove plastic wrap from ball and roll ball into morsels to completely cover, pressing morsels into the ball if necessary.

Place ball on serving dish; cover and freeze for 2 hours or until almost firm. (Can be made ahead. If frozen overnight, thaw at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before serving.) Serve with graham cracker sticks, teddy grahams, or apple slices for dipping or spreading.

I found the serving dish and spreader for $1 at Walgreeens! What's GREAT about that is you can leave it where you brought it:) ENJOY!!
