My friends, I hope that your day has been filled with joy and sweet things. I have spent most of today sleeping to be honest, the heat does that to me sometimes. I guess it does that to everyone. 😀 Anyway, I wanted to share something tasty with you today, something that is beyond yummy. Beyond delicious. TO INFINITY!!! AND BEYOND! *coughs and shakes her head* What just happened? Did I get possessed by Buzz Lightyear again? ANYWHO! Here ya go my lovelies and I hope that you enjoy it!
- 1/4 cup peanut butter or allergy-friendly alternative (60g)
- 8 oz cream cheese, such as Daiya or Tofutti
- 2 cups powdered sugar or Sugar-Free Powdered Sugar (300g)
- 3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (75g)
Bring both the cream cheese and peanut butter to room temperature (to a stir-able consistency), then mix together with a spoon in a deep bowl, adding the powdered sugar gradually. Add in the vanilla, and mix until a smooth and even consistency is reached. Spoon onto a large sheet of plastic wrap, then bring the sides up and twist very tightly to form something of a ball shape. Freeze in the coldest part of your freezer for 2-3 hours or until firm enough that the plastic wrap can be removed without the ball falling apart. Place chocolate chips in a large bowl or ziploc bag, then roll the cheeseball until evenly coated with chocolate chips. Freeze until ready to serve (or refrigerate if not serving until the next day). Serve with graham crackers, sliced fruit, or anything else you think goes well with chocolate chips and peanut butter. (Keep in mind that you can also roll it in other yumminess! Tiny Marshmallows, White Chocolate Chips, Walnuts! You name it, you can do it. Well, don’t put something weird like small farm animals or eyeballs. That wouldn’t taste good.)
I don’t know about y’all but I love me a good cheese ball. Even if it is a dessert one. YUM YUM YUM! I hope that y’all enjoy it and by all means, share your recipes with us in the comments below! We would all love to hear them!
