(Confession time: I do not like any of those things.  So… this is not the dip for me.  But it’s probably the dip for you, because people look at me like I’m crazy when I admit this.  I am definitely the one in the minority.)

I’ve never liked cheesecake, and I had such a strong aversion to peanut butter while I was pregnant with my son that three years later, I still don’t care for it.  FUN FACT: pregnancy food aversions sometimes never go away.  Who knew?!

Seven ingredients.  Five minutes.  That’s all you need to make this peanut butter cup cheesecake dip.  Perfect for your Super Bowl party.

I know appetizers and finger-foods are key for football parties, but people love desserts, too!  I’ve made this chocolate chip cookie dough dip for many football parties in the past, and people rave about it.

Dessert dips are totally the way to go when it comes to hosting a big crowd.  Easy to make, make ahead of time, and you can snack one handed while crowding around the TV.

If you make this ahead of time, let it sit out at room temperature for 20 or so minutes and give it a quick whip with an electric mixer.  As the cream cheese and butter chill overnight in the fridge, the dip gets a more solid, and it’s hard to scoop some up with a graham cracker or pretzel without it breaking.

Bring the dip to room temperature, mix it up a little, and you’re good to go!

Serve with graham crackers, pretzels (salty-sweet combo is the best, amiright?), vanilla wafers, apple slices, oooorrrr… just a spoon.  No judgement here.
