How to Make Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cheese Ball


  1. Soften cream cheese. Beat well, then cream in brown sugar, peanut butter
    and confectioners' sugar. Add vanilla extract. Fold in peanut butter and
    chocolate chips, and peanut butter cups. Refrigerate in a bowl for 3 hours.

    Form into a ball, then roll in chopped peanuts.

    I processed a cup of the chocolate chip and peanut butter chips and added to the
    final chopped peanuts to roll the cheese balls in to give it an added dimension,
    but you don`t need to if you don`t want to.

    I think these would be cool to freeze slightly, and make a Ganache, and put on a
    rack and either drizzle with chocolate Ganache, or dip in the Ganache, and let
    set up and top with a smatter of melted peanut butter for a "buckeye" cheese
    ball. Cool, huh! (Since first trying this for a 'buckeye cheeseball'. I've made
    literally dozens of them, especially during buckeye football season. Very good.
