STEP 1 Cream peanut butter, cream cheese and butter together until completely smooth and free of any lumps.
STEP 2 Using a 1 ounce scoop or tablespoon, scoop balls of peanut butter mixture and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Roll with your hands to smooth.
STEP 3 Carefully lower them into the melted chocolate, about 3/4 the way up the ball of peanut butter.
STEP 4 Place on parchment-lined baking sheet to let the chocolate set. Smooth the top with your finger to cover the hole from the skewer.
