What is it that comes to your mind when you think about the ultimate dessert? Some people have something specific that they enjoy but others are just going to pick something off of the menu and roll with it. Although there are many choices available, it seems as if cheesecake is a choice that many people make. Unfortunately, they don’t make it at home because they feel as if it is too difficult to do.
If you love cheesecake but don’t indulge yourself in it as much as you would like, then this recipe is just right for you. It is for a peanut butter cheesecake ball treat and when you try these little dynamos, you are sure to go back for seconds. Keep some extra on hand for sharing.
16 ounces chilled cream cheese
1 cup creamy honey-roasted peanut butter
10 ounces chocolate candy melts
crushed honey-roasted peanuts (optional)
Place your cream cheese and peanut butter in your mixer and whip together using your paddle attachment.
Using a medium scoop, drop your balls of cheesecake mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for 1-2 hours (or until solid).
Place the chocolate candy melts in a bowl and microwave for 90 seconds. Stir every 30 seconds until it’s smooth and creamy.
Using a fork, dip the cheesecake balls into the chocolate candy melts . Tap your fork on the side of your bowl to remove the excess chocolate candy melts. Place back on your parchment lined sheet and quickly sprinkle with the crushed peanuts (they harden fast). Refrigerate until it’s time to serve.
