Peanut Butter Cheese Ball

I love cheese balls. I mean, who doesn’t, right? For so long though, I only knew them in the savory capacity.

Then one day, someone brought a dessert cheese ball to a church potluck, and my life was changed.

What it basically amounts to is cream cheese, sweetener, and flavorings. The sweetener is usually powdered sugar to help make the cheese ball firm, but I’ve swapped it for raw turbinado so that I feel better about eating a lot of it. As a result, the texture is much softer, and, served at room temperature, this could be used as a dip.
