Football Peanut Butter Dip

First off, please excuse my photography. I don't have great pictures of this Peanut Butter Dip, but it was WAY TOO GOOD not to share. You will just have to suffer through the poor photos....Then go make this dip and enjoy it. Trust me, you will be happy you did.

Football Peanut Butter Dip is perfect to take to gatherings. Since we are a football house, I took one Football Peanut Butter Dip to a Buffalo Bills game watching party, and one to a Buffalo Bills Wives gathering. It was an absolute hit at both. Perfect for kids and adults alike.

I found the idea for the shape of the dip on Pinterest.  

I also love that this recipe can be made ahead of time.

Football Peanut Butter Dip

8 oz cream cheese
1 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 TB vanilla
1 TB french vanilla coffee creamer
2 3/4 cup powdered sugar
3/4 c mini chocolate chips
2-3 TB white chocolate chips or (white any frosting)
1/4 tsp coconut oil or other form of oil (if needed)

-In a mixer mix softened cream cheese, peanut butter, vanilla, creamer, and powdered
 sugar until mixture is smooth.
-Form mixture into a football shape using clean hands, plastic glove covered hands, or with
 saran wrap between your hands and the mixture.
-Wrap the football shaped peanut butter mixture in plastic wrap or plastic bag and freeze
 for one hour.
-After 1 hour, remove from the freezer and cover the top surface and sides with mini
 chocolate chips.
-Press the mini chocolate chips into the mixture so they stick.
-I always sprinkle a few extra on the top at the end so that you can't see any PB.
-In a small bowl put the white chocolate chips and microwave for 20-30 seconds. Stir.
-If chocolate needs help getting smooth and melty add the coconut oil. Stir, then microwave more if needed in small increments.
-Using a Ziploc bag with the tip cut off or a frosting bag, pipe the white chocolate onto the football to make the laces. *Tip - if the white chocolate isn't coming out fast enough or you are having trouble with it sticking to the mini chocolate chips, thin it out with a little more oil.
-Cover. Freeze 30 min. Take out 15-20 minutes or so before serving if you wish.
-OR Cover and keep refrigerated for a few hours before serving. 
-Serve with Teddy Grahams, apple slices, and/or pretzels.
-If you freeze it longer or overnight, let it sit out at room temp to soften a bit for about half
 an hour.
