It’s cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, peanut butter, and chopped Reese’s cups. I think cheese balls are a Midwest thing 😂


PerserveringLove05 t1_j8bkns6 wrote

I can like it now that I know it's cream cheese

I was imagining just a ball of cheddar at the center of this...

Would like to try this with cheddar


notquitecockney t1_j8cls8j wrote

I want it with brunost …


TheThreeMuscleteers t1_j8d44y8 wrote

Wait, brunost is a thing outside of the Nordics?


notquitecockney t1_j8d47io wrote

Ha ha. No. It’s not a thing outside Norway afaik.

But I buy it in London.


TheThreeMuscleteers t1_j8d4ira wrote

It's sort of a thing in Sweden and Denmark as well, not sure about Finland. Just had no idea it was available anywhere else, the more you know.


notquitecockney t1_j8d4l3q wrote

It’s not actually available in London, I think I’ve seen it at one cheese store and mostly at the scandi shop.


sabrooooo t1_j8e8hoq wrote

Right? Let me take back my downvote and upvote it lol


drewismynamea t1_j8bn3vq wrote

It's a dessert cheese ball, hahahaha!


stayawayfrommeinfj OP t1_j8bnxym wrote

I made a savory one for new years. It was cream cheese, cheddar, ranch and bacon


stylish_aggie t1_j8buwi3 wrote

Yeah see, thats something along the lines of whay I'm familiar with. Only had it tried it once ir twice. Never even considered a dessert cheeseball, that's awesome.


optidave1313 t1_j8bi4z4 wrote

Yeah, the "cheese" and not "cream cheese" threw us. Sounds really interesting and tasty.


MorriePoppins t1_j8cs843 wrote

Maybe a Southern thing, too. We know all cheese balls are not savory!

EDIT: absolutely flabbergasted by the number of replies that are either unfamiliar with dessert cheese balls or with cheesecake as a concept in general lol


ConnieLingus24 t1_j8dbyyv wrote

What is the delivery system for the “cheese”? Cookies?

Nm: you mentioned it’s nilla wafers or Graham crackers.


bigfootmydog t1_j8eapg8 wrote

Woah woah woah the Midwest does not claim this godless creation as a Michigander this is definitely something a Wisconsinite would do


stayawayfrommeinfj OP t1_j8eclaq wrote

Wisconsin is definitely part of the Midwest. So is Michigan. I’m from Minnesota and have family in Iowa and we enjoy cheese balls!


yiannistheman t1_j8ev6qm wrote

Does it basically taste like a cheesecake mixed with Reese's?


InnocentTailor t1_j8fi1zr wrote

This is more acceptable. I was thinking of…you know…other types of cheese.


JRocFuhsYoBih t1_j8fzge1 wrote

I’m from Chicago and I’ve never heard of a cheese ball like that


remberzz t1_j8bpyz8 wrote

Peanut butter, sugar, vanilla and chopped Reeses sounds good.

But with cream cheese? No, thank you.


kupofjoe t1_j8bwbdd wrote

I mean to each their own but peanut butter cheesecake is pretty banger, sounds extremely similar in taste profile, especially since OP said graham crackers were the dipping tool


remberzz t1_j8bwnmt wrote

Is peanut butter cheesecake an actual thing?!?? Yuck!!


kupofjoe t1_j8bwy8e wrote

Yes…even a lot of grocery stores will sell a variety cheesecake in their bakery section with a slice of classic, a slice of oreo or chocolate, a strawberry or cherry slice, and a peanut butter slice. Very typical flavor.


remberzz t1_j8c3zmq wrote

I've obviously led too sheltered a life.


kupofjoe t1_j8c47i4 wrote

You may have had other sweet desserts where cream cheese was a key ingredient without realizing it. Ever had red velvet or carrot cake? The white frosting is cream cheese frosting.


remberzz t1_j8c5bve wrote

Hmmm. Now I have interesting questions to explore. I love plain cream cheese. I would eat it just by itself. But I don't like fruit cream cheeses because I don't like sweetness mixed with it.

I adore carrot cake, but usually scrape off the frosting. Again not caring for the sweet cream cheese.

Not a fan of red velvet.

I make peanut sauces at home using peanut butter. I might use soy sauce, honey, ginger or any combination.

But alas, I still can't imagine peanut butter and cream cheese. No tangy peanut butter and no sweet cream cheese. I'm going to leave that for the rest of you.

It would only make it more like a cheesecake

Maybe you should start thinking?

they definitely are, because I am also american lol


Jedimaster996 t1_j8cr016 wrote

Pay the price for what? To go to college for free, have my healthcare and retirement taken care of for me and my family for the next 80 years after retiring at 38 in a cushy tech job that the government paid for to train me in?

Oh the humanity.

Interesting! Is there any chance you'd post what the inside looks like?

Inside of the cheeseball This is what it looks like when it’s been dug into a little bit


hanatheko t1_j8f4ams wrote

.. why is the cheese brown? Not being rude, just wondering.


stayawayfrommeinfj OP t1_j8frfz7 wrote

It’s cheese cream, powdered sugar, vanilla and peanut butter which gives it the color

bubennn t1_j8cgat3 wrote

Is it a cup or is it a ball? We will never know.


homelessdreamer t1_j8ch9nx wrote

The thing about Reeses Peanut butter Cup flavored things for me is that Reeses are good because of the balance of rich flavors and size. Everytime I have a Reeses flavor desert I can only eat approximately the volume of a few Reeses before the richness over comes my desire to continue. Which I find weird because I can eat a giant bag of Reeses with out issue.


ShaitanSpeaks t1_j8d0bc4 wrote

I LOVE reeces pieces and cheese, but I don’t know how I feel about this.

You are one incredibly patient person, OP - not sure I'd have the wherewithal to place all of those candies.


Adventurous_Crazy335 t1_j8c236b wrote

cheese as a dessert is quite interesting for me (unique combination).


anubis647 t1_j8dj2z4 wrote

Just in case you were confused like some others in the replies, it's cream cheese like in a cheesecake, not cheddar or something.

How do you eat this?

I value the effort into the pattern, it's so lined up.


anubis647 t1_j8diyss wrote

You would dip cookies or graham crackers into it and scoop the cream cheese base. There are also savory ones and you generally use crackers. It's kind of like a dip.
