Peanut Butter Cheeseball

    The most addictive snack that I've had in awhile, I discovered at a recent holiday recipe contest. Curiosity had me at the unique idea of a "Peanut Butter Cheese Ball." How does that work?  Great is how it works. 
    The cream cheese lightens the peanut butter and there's just enough sweet, but not too much, that works just right with that touch of salt in the peanut butter. Dip with a few grahams and you'll be hooked, too. A few dips is not enough.

Peanut Butter Cheese Ball
1 pkg. cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 T. packed brown sugar
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter chips
1 pkg. graham cracker sticks

Beat cheese, powdered sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar in large mixing bowl until blended. Spoon into large piece of plastic wrap, bring corners up and twist tightly forming a ball. 

Freeze for 10 minutes or until firm enough to keep shape. Place peanut butter and chocolate chips on flat surface. Then roll the ball in pressing slightly so that the chips stick to cheese ball. 

Keep in refrigerator  until ready to serve with graham cracker sticks, teddy grahams or apple slices.
