By Kirsten Hatch


Kick off game day the right way by prepping some delectable Football Dip. Not just creative, this peanut-buttery treat is quick, easy, and delicious. It works great as an appetizer or a dessert and is sure to be a touchdown with your guests.

For this recipe you will need:

  • ¼ cup room temperature salted butter
  • 4 ounces room temperature cream cheese
  • 1 cup of peanut butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups - 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • A Great Surprise Chocolate Sprinkles
  • White chocolate or frosting for laces 


  • Cream the butter, cream cheese, and peanut butter together with a handheld mixer until combined, then mix in your vanilla extract. 
  • Add your powdered sugar in half-cup increments until combined.
  • Shape it into a football, then cover with chocolate sprinkles and pipe with white icing to get this ball ready for kick-off. 
  • Choose your dippers! Are you Team Salty or Team Sweet? Either way, pretzels and strawberries make great team-mates for this snack. Snack Cookies would also be a great addition to this lineup. 

Here’s a tip: This recipe would also work with Orange Sprinkles for basketball season. Try different shapes and colors to make this recipe appropriate for any occasion. The only limit is your imagination!
