Peanut Butter Flag Dip

This Peanut Butter Flag Dip will be the absolute hit of your Memorial Day or Fourth of July party! Full of peanut butter and chocolate chips, this dip is awesome with dippers but better with a spoon!

A little over a year ago, I posted this little recipe called a Peanut Butter Football Dip. I made it on a whim one afternoon, trying to make something for my football-obsessed husband. I had no idea it would become my #1 most viewed recipe ever. Also, the #1 most stolen, but that’s another story. 😉

I have been trying to figure out how to repeat that dip, because everyone seemed to love it so much. I’m a smart person, but it took an email from a reader to make the lightbulb go off in my head.

I didn’t need to re-make the dip recipe. I needed to re-make the shape!

Last month, a reader emailed and said how much she loved the Peanut Butter Football. She sent me photos of how she’d made it into a fish for her father’s surprise birthday, and into a pencil for the teachers at her school.

As soon as I saw her photos, a load of bricks fell on my head and I was all, duuuuuhhhhhh. Only took me over a year to figure that one out. Jeesh.

I immediately racked my brain for the net big holiday. Even though July 4th is still over a month away, Memorial Day is this weekend. And, well. I couldn’t wait to share this with you!

This is the exact same dip recipe as that Peanut Butter Football. Peanut butter, cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and mini chocolate chips.

{You know…low fat stuff.}

You mix it together, form it into a shape. Find some sprinkles in the colors you want…and voila!

I got my excess of red and blue sprinkles from Sweet! Baking Supply. Like I said the other day…a 3 ounce bottle is a lot of sprinkles. I used about 3/4 of a red and the same of the blue. You can find white jimmies at most craft or baking stores right now. Pretty soon they’ll have red, white, and blue sprinkles in the stores, but if you can’t find them, I totally recommend Sweet! They got here super fast and were super cheap!

I know I show serving it with pretzels (and Pie Crust Chips would be great too!), but my favorite way to eat it was with a spoon. Why waste the calories on the dippers? 😉

Peanut Butter Flag Dip

A sweet peanut butter dip that looks like the flag!


  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter (your choice; crunchy or smooth)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar (up to 2 cups if needed)
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • Red, White, and Blue jimmies sprinkles (separated)


  1. Cream butter, cream cheese, and peanut butter until mixed (using a hand-held mixer). Mix in vanilla.
  2. Add powdered sugar, ½ cup at a time, and mix until combined. Mix in chocolate chips.
  3. Turn out mixture on a large sheet of waxed paper. Use your hands to form into a rectangle (flag) shape.
  4. Place the waxed paper onto your serving plate. (It helps if the plate has sides…less mess!) Cover in sprinkles in a flag pattern: using waxed paper, block off a section for the blue. Cover in blue sprinkles, then a few white ones and pat to adhere them. Do the same for the red and white stripes of the flag, repeating until the dip is covered.
  5. Serving suggestion: pretzels, animal crackers, cookies, a spoon. Store in refrigerator.

  1. So fun! Around Superbowl time, I posted a pizza in the shape of a stadium. I think you did that ‘snackadium’ post, too, right? This reminds me of that, but better. Because PB trumps pizza!

  37. I make your dip ALL THE TIME; I am obsessed with it and it’s always a HUGE hit at any party. I serve it with pretzels and chocolate animal cookies — which is the HANDS DOWN MOST TASTY way to eat it! I usually do the football version, but if not that I just throw it in a bowl like any other dip. It doesn’t need sprinkles to be delicious!
