Peanut Butter Brownie Cups & Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Have you noticed that most Christmas treats are all about the chocolate?  That’s because chocolate makes everything better!  These two recipes are party worthy!

Peanut Butter Brownie Cups

Peanut Butter Brownie Cups is another one of my old school go-to recipes.  I’ve never seen anyone turn these babies down!

Peanut Butter Brownie Cups

  • 1 pkg fudge brownie mix
  •  miniature peanut butter cup candies, unwrapped
  1. Preheat oven to 350.  Place paper baking cups in muffin pans.
  2. Combine brownie mix according to instructions on the package.  Fill baking cups 2/3 full.  Remove wrappers from peanut butter cups; set one in the center of each brownie cup and press down until the batter meets the top edge of the candy.
  3. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.  Makes about 1-1/2 dozen.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Make sure you include Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball on your dessert bar.  I love to watch people’s faces when they bite into this dessert cheese ball!  I call it the cheese ball gone rogue!  It’s pure awesomeness on a party platter!

  • 1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter (not margarine), softened
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 cups miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • graham crackers (to scoop it all up with)
In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla until fluffy.  Gradually add sugars; beat just until combined.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours (or overnight).  Just before serving, shape into a ball and roll in pecans.  Serve with graham crackers.
