Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 6-oz. Container of Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter (Creamy or Crunchy)
  • 3 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 10-oz. Package of Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Gingersnap Cookie Crumbs
  • Wax Paper
  • Two Mixing Bowls
  • Serving Tray
  • Zipper-Seal Plastic Bag
  • Scissors

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Set aside one tablespoon of cream cheese in a small bowl. Blend the rest of the cream cheese and the peanut butter until completely mixed and smooth.
  2. Add two cups of powdered sugar to the peanut butter mixture, ½ cup at a time, until it is blended and becomes almost the consistency of a cheese ball. (You may need to add more sugar to reach this consistency, depending on the moisture in your chosen peanut butter and cream cheese.)
  3. Wrap your mixture into a ball using a sheet of wax paper and chill for about 30 minutes in the fridge.
  4. After 30 minutes, remove the dip from the fridge and place it in the middle of a serving tray, then use your hands to shape the mixture into a football shape.
  5. Press gingersnap cookie crumbs onto the outside of the dip until it’s completely covered.
  6. To create the frosting, slowly add one cup of sugar to the cream cheese you set aside in Step #1. Continue to add sugar until it reaches a frosting consistency.
  7. Spoon the frosting into a zipper-seal plastic bag and use scissors to snip off a bottom corner of the bag. Use this bag to pipe “laces” onto the center of your football-shaped dip.
  8. Serve it up with pretzels, apple slices, graham crackers, or animal crackers. Or, if you’re tempted, eat it right off the tray with a spoon! Pair it with one of these festive fall drinks and you’ll be in autumn bliss.
