The biggest hit at your next holiday party.

There have been so many delicious chocolate recipes this week for #Choctoberfest! One of our amazing sponsors, Davis Chocolate, not only shared their artisan chocolate wine sticks with us (more on that below), but they also gifted us a bag of their Organic Peanutta Chips, which is the ONLY organic peanut butter chip on the market!

Peanutta Chips by Davis Chocoalte

The Peanutta chips are dairy-free, Kosher, fair trade certified organic, soy-free, gluten-free and vegan which makes them PERFECT for desserts, protein bars, cookies and more!

I’m such a huge peanut butter fan so I knew right away that I was going to have to go all in with these chips and see what I could create.

With all the holiday parties coming up, I though a dessert ball was the perfect way to go. They’re simple to make, easy to take with you to parties and they’re always a big hit!

You only need 5 ingredients: cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, Peanutta chips and graham crackers!

Pull your cream cheese block out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before you start so it softens and is easily mixable. Once soft, place in a bowl with the powdered sugar and vanilla extract and whisk away. Slightly melt the peanut butter chips and pour into cream cheese mix and whisk again until everything is mixed well.

Place mixture onto plastic wrap and as you wrap it up make sure to shape into a ball. Place in freezer for about 1 hour.

Remove your ball and place on serving dish. Wait 20 minutes, then cover the ball with the remaining chips and serve with graham crackers. Ta-da! Your peanut butter cheesecake dessert is ready to get devoured! Enjoy!

Remember those amazing artisan chocolate wine sticks I spoke about earlier? Well they are also from Davis Chocolate and made to pair with wine, champagne, ports and beers. If you go to DavisChocolate.com they have all the pairings listed. Personally, I just like to eat them right out of the bag, but the wine is pretty good too. 😉
