This basketball-shaped dessert is a slam dunk for sports fans! It seems crafty, but creating the look is easy: a simple no-bake cheesecake filling is shaped into a ball, refrigerated until it can hold its shape and then decorated with brown and orange peanut butter candies. Served with vanilla wafer cookies for dipping, this is the perfect treat to enjoy while watching the game — or at a sports-themed birthday party!


Select ingredients:


  1. Beat the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and pudding mix together until smooth using an electric hand mixer. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15 minutes until semi-firm.
  2. Form the cream cheese mixture into a ball and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  3. Uncover the cream cheese ball and top with the brown and orange peanut butter chocolate candy pieces to make the shape of a basketball.
  4. Serve with the wafer cookies and enjoy.

Recipe Tip: Substitute your favorite flavor of instant pudding mix for the banana cream instant pudding mix and serve with an assortment of cookies, pretzels and fresh fruit!
