YUM! I don’t even like cheese balls that much but apparently I like this one! What’s not to like? It’s full of cream cheese and butter and powdered sugar and Oreos and chocolate syrup! On top of Nilla Wafers! Heck yeah!
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
18 – 20 Oreos, crushed
1 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
Nilla Wafers, pretzels, graham crackers, apples, whatever you like for dipping
1 Beat cream cheese and butter for 3 minutes. Add sugar and beat for 2 more minutes. Remove a big spoonful, place in a Ziploc bag and set aside (this will make the laces on top of your football.)
2 Beat in chocolate syrup and crushed Oreos.
3 Line a bowl with plastic wrap. Drop cream cheese mixture into plastic wrap lined bowl. Fold plastic wrap around cheese ball and refrigerate for 1 hour.
4 Shape cheese ball into football shape and then remove plastic wrap. Press chocolate chips over the whole surface of the cheese ball. Use your reserved baggie of the cream cheese mixture to pipe laces on the top of your football, just snip a corner of the baggie off and away you go.
5 Serve with dippables.
