Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl Peanut Butter Cheesecake
It’s no secret to my five blog readers that I’m not very knowledgeable about sports. What I do know is how annoyed I get when other cities start ragging on mine. Yes, Philadelphia is eclectic, loud, and a bit odd, but Philadelphia is unique. So I’ll cheer on the Philadelphia Eagles playing the Super Bowl the only way I know how: A Philadelphia Eagles-Themed Dessert Platter.
I always call Philadelphia a big city with a small town heart. Put me anywhere I’m sure I’ll run into someone I know – that is both a good thing and bad.
When the Philadelphia Eagles won the NFC Championship, I was pleased but I didn’t lose my mind like my fellow citizens.
That stuff I don’t mind. Then a business featured in the Boston Globe had to go and piss me off.
Okay, first of all, Philadelphia Cream Cheese isn’t made in Philadelphia. It’s just the name. A Wikipedia search would give you all the information you need to know. You have to be a special kind of lazy if you can’t do a simple search that an elementary school student can do in their sleep.
Now rightfully annoyed I had to channel my rage* into something else since I cut down on my drinking. So I decided to give the citizens of Boston a really Philly-esqe dessert. Just to be extra petty, I’m going to use Philadelphia Cream Cheese since no one will let that go.
I present my spin on a dessert tray fit for any Super Bowl party – no matter if you are a hardcore fan or just there for the hot wings.
Tastykake and Goldenbergs Are Born in Philly; Not the Cream Cheese
I decorated Tastykake Kandy Kakes® and Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews® (both born in the Philadelphia area – take note) with Kelly Green & White chocolate. Since everyone equates Philadelphia Cream Cheese with the City of Brotherly Love, here are peanut butter mini cheesecakes. And the pièce derésistance! Sugar Cookies shaped like dog bones.
No matter what. I love my city. Don’t disrespect it.

*Don’t even get me started on the asses calling The Philadelphia Art Museum steps the horrible name The Rocky Steps. There’s a world of culture in the building above the steps.
