Game Day Chocolate Chip

Cheesecake Ball

This Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Ball is the perfect appetizer for game day snacking! Go on and wow your guests at your next football party with this easy, yummy treat!

Traditional cheese balls are pretty popular for get-togethers and parties, and I always look forward to snacking on them.

Making this cheesecake ball is a fairly simple process. A few years ago, my mom gave me this super cute football platter set for Christmas. I love pulling it out this time of year and using it to serve different types of salsa while we watch the game.

Now there is no need to worry if you don’t have a football shaped bowl like this. If you have a small, oval shaped bowl, you could use it in the same way. Or, you could simply shape the cheesecake ball using your hands once it has properly chilled, as it is very easy to manipulate.

Fill with the chilled batter then cover and return to fridge to chill for one more hour. If you are making the football shape by hand, use a large piece of plastic wrap to help form into a football shape first.

Once the cheesecake ball is finished chilling, transfer to a serving plate. To do this, I unwrapped the top of the cheesecake ball, then flipped it over on top of the platter.

I covered mine in miniature chocolate chips, then used white chocolate chips for the accent color and “laces.” I love serving this with graham crackers, vanilla wafers, and even pretzels for that yummy sweet and salty combo.
