Peanut Butter-Bacon Football Dip

I know who wins the Superbowl. THIS DIP. (Inspired by crazyforcrust.)

Ingredients

4
tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
4
ounces cream cheese, softened
1
cup smooth peanut butter
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4
cups powdered sugar
1/2
cup semisweet chocolate chips
8
ounces bacon, cooked and crumbled into small pieces
White icing or frosting for drawing on the laces
Nature Valley™ granola thins, for serving

Directions

  • 1 In a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter, cream cheese, peanut butter and vanilla until well combined.
  • 2 Add powdered sugar and stir to combine. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • 3 Turn peanut butter mixture out onto a sheet of wax paper. Use your hands to shape into a football (if it's too soft to hold its shape, put it in the freezer for a few minutes to firm it up).
  • 4 Carefully invert the football onto a serving plate. Coat with cooked and crumbled bacon, carefully pressing it into the top and sides to adhere.
  • 5 Use white icing or frosting to pipe on laces on top of the football. Serve with granola thins or pretzels.

Peanut Butter-Bacon Football Dip

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

Calling all people who love bacon and peanut butter and chocolate!


This Peanut Butter-Bacon Football Dip is the cat’s pajamas – I mean, just look at it. Take a gander. Do you see the insanity going on here? Do you understand the deliciousness upon which you gaze with thine eyes? Can you HANDLE the flavor explosion placed before you and your retinas?

Good, I’m glad you can. Because you’re gonna LURVE this dip (and so will all of your Superbowl partying folk!).

 

Ingredients for Peanut Butter-Bacon Football Dip

Let’s get something straight here: This dip is not for the fainthearted, for the wimpy-tastebudded, for the rabbit food eater. It’s made of anything and everything your inner fat kid desires – chocolate chips and peanut butter and real butter and cream cheese and bacon and powdered sugar (which I forgot to add to the photo – d’oh) and icing, OH MY.

 

Mixing up everything except bacon and icing

We’re going to mix up all the good stuff in a stand mixer (minus the bacon and the icing – we’ll save that for later).

 

Dip shaped into football

Then we’re going to shape it into a football or an eye or a very large pair of lips.

 

Bacon pressed into dip

Then we’re going to cover it all up with cooked and crumbled bacon to make the “pigskin.” You know, for extra credit.

 

Nature Valley Granola Thins

Then we’re going to pipe on the football laces with white icing and serve it with Nature Valley’s oh-so-tasty Granola Thins.

 

Peanut Butter-Bacon Football Dip, ready to eat

Then we’re going to gaze upon our miraculous game-day creation (again)…
