It literally tastes like a giant ball of peanut butter cheesecake!

I made the peanut butter cheese ball for a Super Bowl party, but it would fit right in at a holiday gathering, potluck, book club, or any other excuse you can find for a party. Serve it with graham crackers, sliced fruit, pretzels, or even gingersnaps.

Print This Recipe No ratings yet.


  • 1/4 cup peanut butter or allergy-friendly alternative (60g)
  • 8 oz cream cheese, such as Daiya or Tofutti
  • 2 cups powdered sugar or Sugar-Free Powdered Sugar (300g)
  • 3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (75g)


Bring both the cream cheese and peanut butter to room temperature (to a stir-able consistency), then mix together with a spoon in a deep bowl, adding the powdered sugar gradually. Add in the vanilla, and mix until a smooth and even consistency is reached. Spoon onto a large sheet of plastic wrap, then bring the sides up and twist very tightly to form something of a ball shape. Freeze in the coldest part of your freezer for 2-3 hours or until firm enough that the plastic wrap can be removed without the ball falling apart. Place chocolate chips in a large bowl or ziploc bag, then roll the cheeseball until evenly coated with chocolate chips. Freeze until ready to serve (or refrigerate if not serving until the next day). Serve with graham crackers, sliced fruit, or anything else you think goes well with chocolate chips and peanut butter.

  1. I saw this and immediately thought of using teddy grahams to ‘dip’ in it.

  2. becauseHeloves! says:

    You might just be my best friend. Everybody needs peanut butter and chocolate chips to cheer them up! This looks so good. I’m so excited right now, you don’t even understand!

    1. Carol says:

      Hellllooo becauseHeLoves! Rest assured, I totally understand!!! Right there with you GirlFriend!

  3. EVA says:

    I just ate yet I’m salivating after seeing that big missing chunk of cheeseball. Party? I don’t need a party as an excuse to eat this. I think it would look very nice sitting on my kitchen counter, like a cornucopia.

  4. This looks dangerously good Katie! I can only imagine it was gone within minutes! Serving it almost like a dessert cheese with sweet biscuits sounds like the perfect treat 😀

  5. Hollie says:

    Can you ever go wrong with chocolate cookie dough, peanut butter or cheesecake ? No.

  6. I could eat that entire ball in one sitting. No doubt. <3

  7. Now here’s a ball I would love to stuff my face in…
    yes. I realize that sounded wrong. But ummm… YUM! Peanut butter… chocolate… sounds like a perfect treat to me 🙂

  8. I have a such a sweet tooth, I can imagine myself making this and eating the whole thing for dinner…sounds AMAZING!

    1. EVA says:

      For dinner? PERFECT IDEA!

  9. eej2004 says:

    Just discovered your blog and everything looks yummy! A question for you though: When a recipe calls for peanut butter, are you using natural peanut butter (i.e. no sugar added, etc) or your run-of-the-mill Jif? There is a consistency difference for sure, and I would hate to mess up any of these yummy-looking recipes. Thanks!

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      She usually uses natural, but I’ve made most of the recipes with Skippy and it works fine.

  10. Cream cheese is quickly becoming one of my favorite foods — good thing I have a coupon for Daiya! This sounds delicious.

  11. Rose says:

    Wow, 44 servings? That’s a lot of party guests!

  12. This looks SO delicious, and I wouldn’t mind slathering it on those carrot cake waffles 😉

  13. Lindsay says:

    Um, amazing. Do you think you could break off pieces of the ball after freezing and roll into little cheesecake bites?

  14. A cheesecake ball!! what a fabulous idea!!! <3 I want to lick my screen (but I wont' ;P) !

  15. Tammela says:

    This sounds dangerously good.

  16. Katlyn says:

    The problem with this is that I would eat the whole thing….peanut butter…

  17. Oh, this looks like heaven! I love how simple the ingredient list is!

  18. Sydney says:

    Wow, this looks and sounds amazing! I love it’s simplicity, and it would definitely look deliciously unique at a party or gathering with non-vegan friends who think being vegan is no fun (it is!)

    Katie: I recently became vegan (Im 17 years old), and Ive been bookmarking many of your recipes to try soon! I was just wondering what brand of chocolate chips you buy that are dairy free? Im in the process of learning more about veganism and ingredients so im not very knowledgeable about this kind of stuff yet 😛

    1. Anna says:

      I use Enjoy Life brand, it’s top 8 allergen free. Whole foods also has their own brand of vegan chocolate chips

    2. K says:

      Ghirardelli semi-sweet (the ones in the gold bag) are also vegan, and you can find those in almost all stores. Good luck with your veganism! 🙂

  19. Katy says:

    This is such a cool idea, and I bet it was a hit at the super bowl party! The cute mini chocolate chips definitely make the dessert. 🙂

  20. OMG, this sounds so good and doesn’t look to hard to make! I will have to give this a try for my next get together.
