Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cheese Ball

I've dreamed of creating this recipe for a long time now. It's been swirling around in my head of what direction to go with it. I finally came up with this amazingly delicious, out of the ordinary cheese ball that would be perfect to take to any party or simply to make for yourself.

Warning! Sugar rush is sure to follow. May cause smiling followed by extreme hyperactivity.





Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cheese Ball
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/8 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa
mini chocolate chips
sunflower seed kernels, roasted and salted

Mix together cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar, 1/8 cup chocolate chips, vanilla extract and cocoa until well combined. Chill in refrigerator for 1-2 hours.

Remove from refrigerator then split mixture in half. Form each half into a ball with your hands. Set aside.

Pour mini chocolate chips and sunflower kernels onto a plate or other flat, clean surface. Roll each ball into the mixture until well coated. You may have to push the kernels and chips into the ball a bit to get them to stay. Makes two 3 inch cheese balls.

Use a spreader to serve with graham crackers or vanilla wafers. Enjoy!
