This recipe is worthy of a touchdown! Made with peanut butter, chocolate chips, and sugar, how can you go wrong? Football season is in full swing and if you’re looking for a new party recipe, this peanut butter gingersnap dip is perfect to serve your favorite football fans. Pair this football-shaped dip with pretzels, apple slices, or graham crackers and your guests will soon be chanting your name over the TV!
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
Easy Step-by-Step Directions:
- 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.
- 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.)
- Wrap your mixture into a ball using a sheet of wax paper and chill for about 30 minutes in the fridge.
- 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.
- Press gingersnap cookie crumbs onto the outside of the dip until it’s completely covered.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
