My daughter was hosting a Super Bowl party so we searched the internet for a fun dessert idea that would be football themed. We stumbled upon www.crazyforcrust.com website and knew this was perfect! I kept the recipe right on for how they did it. It would also be super fun encrusted with red sprinkles for lips to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
1/4 cup of butter (I used butter substitute)
4 ounces of low fat cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup of creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1.5 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
Encrusting: You can use chocolate sprinkles or mini chocolate chips (like I did).
Icing: To replicate the laces on a football.
In a stand mixer, cream the cream cheese and peanut butter with the paddle attachment. Add the vanilla. Then in 1/4 cup increments, add the powdered sugar. Once complete, add the chocolate chips.
Turn the batter out onto your serving platter. Shape with clean hands into a football or lips etc. Then dump your encrusting option on top and start gently pushing it in to cover. I only covered the top. Serve with pretzels or graham crackers. Refrigerate until serving.
