This Peanut Butter Football Dip is a really easy recipe to whip together. It’s a mix of peanut butter, cream cheese powdered sugar, butter and chocolate chips. After whipping it up, instead of making your dip into a ball or spooning into a bowl, shape it like a football!

Top it with mini chocolate chips and serve it with strawberries, apple slices, graham crackers, pretzels, or cookies like our favorites from Voortman Cookies.

How to Make a Football Peanut Butter Dip

Leave your cream cheese and butter on the counter to come to room temperature and soften. This will give your dip a smoother consistency and make it easier to mix everything together.

While I like to use creamy peanut butter for this recipe, a crunchy peanut butter will also be fine and will add even more texture to your dip.

I highly suggest using a stand mixer or a hand mixer. Cream together the peanut butter, butter and cream cheese until it is well blended and fluffy. Add in the vanilla extract.

Finally, add in the powdered sugar. A little at a time. Start at low speed and work your way up. Scrape the sides of the bowl as needed. Fold in mini chocolate chips.

Making the football shape is super easy. Lay a large piece of parchment paper on your serving tray. Place your peanut butter dip in the center and fold over the parchment over it. Shape the dip into a football shape. Remove the parchment paper.

Top your Peanut Butter Football Dip with mini chocolate chips. Make the laces for the football with white frosting.

After you have your football shape, surround your dip your cookies! I’m using Voortman Bakery’s Chocolate Chip Cookies, Vanilla Wafers and my personal favorite, fudge coated chocolate wafers.
