Are you a Reese’s fan? They are one of my favorite candies on the planet. Always the first to disappear in our house around Halloween. But Reese’s did us a HUGE favor…wait for it….THEY MADE A SPREAD!! Yep, you heard correct, there’s now a smooth, creamy, yummy, Reese’s spreads. I foresee lots of yummy concoctions in the near future, but today I’ll show you how I used the Reese’s spreads to create the perfect holiday appetizer idea…a Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Ball covered in Chocolate Chips…with Nilla wafers to spread it on!
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup Reese’s spreads
3 tbs. brown sugar
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, Reese’s spread, and brown sugar together in a bowl using a mixer.
Place mixture on top of a piece of wax paper and pull all ends of paper into middle to create a ball out of the mixture.
Place ball of cheese into a ziploc bag and place in freezer for 2 hours.
Pull out of freezer and remove from bag and wax paper, gently form the ball into a round circle and once you have desired shape spread the mini chocolate chips across a plate.
Roll your ball over the chocolate chips coating all sides. Gently push chocolate chips in until all sides are covered.
Place ball back in fridge to firm up.
Serve with apples, nilla wafers, graham crackers or more for an appetizer cheese spread!
