Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 1 cheese ball


  • 1/4 cup peanut butter, or allergy friendly sub
  • 8 oz cream cheese or coconut butter
  • 2 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar (or Sugar-Free Powdered Sugar)
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, or more if needed


  • Dessert Cheese Ball Recipe: Bring the cream cheese and the peanut butter to room temperature (to a stir-able consistency). Mix together with a spoon in a deep bowl, then add the cocoa powder and vanilla and stir. Gradually add the powdered sugar: It will seem dry at first, but just keep stirring and it will eventually become creamy. Cover the bowl and freeze 6 hours or overnight (depending on the type of peanut butter used), until the mixture is no longer too sticky to spoon onto a large piece of plastic wrap. Bring up the sides of the plastic wrap and twist very tightly to form 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 sticking to the wrap. Place chocolate chips in a large bowl or ziploc bag, then roll the cheese ball 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 desire.
