Peanut Butter “Cheese” Ball

Today is national peanut butter day. So I’m going to be sharing an amazing peanut butter “cheese” ball recipe with you. Its cream cheese base, so it is real cheese, but its not your typical cheese ball, obviously, since its sweet instead of savory.

Its creamy, peanut buttery and covered in chocolate chips and peanut butter chips for an amazing sweet dip/spread. It kind of reminds me of the taste of peanut butter cookie dough, mixed with peanut butter cheesecake, so yeah its good.
