S'mores "Cheese Ball"
I know everyone is posting some awesome recipes for Superbowl Sunday. I love a good dip and I have collected quite a few to try out for the game. But - let's face it - you need something sweet out there too, right? And since everyone else is going to be bringing the chicken wings and the guacamole why not show up with a little something different. Believe me, everyone will be happy you did.
I love these sweet versions of a "Cheese Ball," a few months back I posted a Peanut Butter Cheese Ball. And it was a hit, I actually made it a few more times. My Pinterest board has quite a few sweet treats that I have been collecting and few different "cheese balls" that I need to try. But for a get together not too long ago I opted to try this delicious S'mores Cheese Ball from Taste and Tell. Well, I made it and I tasted it and I am hear to tell you that it is a winner with both the adults and the kids.
recipe from Taste and Tell
8 ounces of cream cheese (room temp)
1/2 cup of butter (room temp)
1 1/2 cups of dry chocolate cake mix
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
2 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows
3 graham crackers, broken into crumbs
crackers for serving; graham crackers, animal crackers, etc.
In your mixer, beat together the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add in the cake mix and the sugars and combine until smooth.
Dump this mixture out onto a piece pf plastic wrap and wrap it up into a ball. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Place the crushed graham crackers on a plate and after unwrapping the "cheese ball" roll it in the crumbs to cover it completely.
Serve with crackers for dipping.
