Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

I made this for Sunday School, and everyone seemed to enjoy it. My kids loved it, proclaiming it – “awesome!” It is a soft and a bit messy to work with but worth it! Double the recipe and keep one in the freezer to have on hand when needed!

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
¾ cup creamy or chunky peanut butter
3 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
1½ cups (9 ounces) milk chocolate morsels or milk chocolate and peanut butter morsels
Graham cracker sticks and apple slices

Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar in large mixer bowl until well blended.
Spoon onto a bowl lined with a large piece of plastic wrap; bring up all four corners and twist tightly, forming a ball shape.
Freeze for a couple of hours or until firm enough to keep its shape.
Place morsels in flat dish, such as a plate or pie dish.
Remove plastic wrap from cheese ball and roll in morsels to completely cover, pressing morsels into cheese ball if necessary.
Place cheese ball on serving dish; cover and freeze for 2 hours or until almost firm. This can be made ahead. If frozen overnight, thaw at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before serving.
Serve with graham cracker sticks and apple slices.
