Oh my gosh…I made these chocolate covered peanut butter cheesecake balls the other day, and I couldn’t believe how well the turned out. Better than well, they were outrageously delicious. And they could not be easier to make. II made them again for Superbowl, and they were a hit. Maybe even more of a hit than that game was…
It all started out when I wanted to make an almond flour dessert, but had no clue what to make. So whenever I’m in this dilemma I just google the ingredients I have, and a bunch of different recipes pop up. I found one for peanut butter cheesecake balls, and then I just took it to the next level by covering them in chocolate. You’re welcome.
There is really not much more to the story…so here you go!
Chocolate Covered Peanutbutter Cheesecake Balls
1/2 block or 4 oz of cream cheese
3/4 C All Natural Peanut Butter – I used chunky
1 Tbs Maple Syrup
1 C melting dark chocolate (you can also use regular chocolate, but it doesn’t create as much of a ‘chocolate shell’
1 Tbs butter
1 C Almond Flour
Mix the softened cream cheese, peanut butter, and maple syrup in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Create small little 1-2 inch balls and place on a plate. Melt the chocolate and butter in a saucepan. Dip the peanut butter balls in the chocolate until coated and place back on the plate. For the balls you want to just coat in almond flour, roll around in the flour until coated. Freeze for 30 min and serve!
