Buckeye Cheeseball

Tina at Sugar Bean Bakers is a huge Potter fan and frequently blogs her mouthwatering desserts, which are often inspired from this and many other book series and TV shows. This one, in particular, came about while she was playing Potter and naturally had Potter on her mind. Tina first thought of Florean Fortescue and the sundaes he gave Harry. However, strawberry and peanut butter does not sound like the best combo. Strawberry and chocolate, though? Yes. All yes.

Ingredients
  • 1 stick butter softened
  • 8 oz. cream cheese Softened. You can use fat free or Neufchâtel cream cheese. Either will result in a slightly different consistency. Neufchâtel was used for the recipe pictured. Whole fat cream cheese will cause the cheese ball to be more easily molded.
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 Tbsp. corn syrup light
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips Mini chips would be best, but regular sized are also suitable.
  • 1 cup peanut butter creamy
