Reese’s 7 Ingredient No-Bake Peanut Butter Ball

Reminiscent of a luscious peanut butter cheesecake but served as a delectable dip, the Reese’s No-Bake 7 Ingredient Peanut Butter Ball is perfect for spreading or scooping onto your favorite cookies, crackers, fruit—or simply enjoying by the spoonful!

Similar to a classic Cheese Ball, this irresistible dessert puts a sweet spin on the classic appetizer, featuring a creamy blend of cream cheese, powdered sugar, and peanut butter. The addition of chopped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups lends a tantalizing texture, while the Reese’s Pieces not only provide a playful decoration but also satisfy your craving for a crunchy peanut butter delight.

For those with a hankering for saltiness, try pairing this decadently sweet treat with Ritz Crackers or Pretzels. If you have a sweet tooth, it complements beautifully with Honeycrisp Apples, Graham Crackers, Cookies, and more!
