Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cheese Ball. This to-die-for dessert (or appetizer!) is easy to make and absolutely delicious. I always catch at least one guest eating it with a spoon instead of on the graham crackers.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Mise en place. Beat cream cheese for one minute or until smooth. 
  • Add peanut butter and mix well. Add powdered sugar and mix until all ingredients well combined. 
  • Lay a piece of plastic wrap out on counter. Scoop the peanut butter mixture into the center. Pull up the corners, then the edges. Gather corner/edges together and twist the peanut butter mixture with other hand, forming into a ball shape. Use a twist tie to prevent it from untwisting. 
  • Place into a shallow bottom bowl and freeze for at least 2 hours. Unwrap Reese's peanut butter cups. Place in freezer. 
  • After two hours, pull Reese's cups out of freezer. Quarter each one. 
  • Pull peanut butter ball out of freezer. Remove plastic wrap. Using hands, make into a ball shape. 
  • Press chopped up Reese's cups onto surface of cheese ball. 
  • Serve with graham crackers and/or Teddy Grahams. 

Notes

This is best served cold. If you allow it to get too warm, it will start to lose its shape.
