The teams played their hearts out, only two remain!  Time to start planning for the BIG GAME!  We thought it would be fun to celebrate 50 years of Superbowls with a Super Sweet Ball...dessert ball that is!  

Here is a recipe for a cookies and cream cheese ball that we couldn't resist.

COOKIES AND CREAM CHEESE BALL

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 package (8oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp chocolate syrup
18 double stuff Oreos, crushed
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate morsels

DIRECTIONS:

In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter for 3 minutes. Add powdered sugar and beat an additional 2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.

Remove a spoonful (about 2-3 Tbsp) and place in a small ziploc bag. Seal and set aside.

To the bowl of cream cheese, add chocolate syrup and crushed Oreo cookies. Blend completely.

Line a large bowl with plastic wrap. Drop the cream cheese mixture into the plastic wrap lined bowl. Fold up the plastic around the cheese ball. Refrigerate for about an hour.

Remove plastic wrap and shape cheese ball into a football on a serving plate.

Press chocolate chips into top and sides until completely covered.

Using your reserved baggie of cream cheese mixture, snip off the corner and pipe "laces" onto your cheese ball.

Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Enjoy with pretzels, apples, or Nilla wafers.
