Hockey Night in Canada is back on and – as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias® – I created a fun snack for hockey fans and peanut butter lovers alike.

To prepare for this ‘hockey night snack’ I went to our local Superstore (The Real Canadian Superstore – Loblaws) to pick up the ingredients I needed. (Actually, who am I kidding? I picked up a whole lot of other items that sooner or later will also make an appearance on this blog.)

Watching hockey is something I only became familiar with when my family moved to Canada (some 6 years ago). Playing hockey on the other hand, Girl’s floor hockey to be specific, was always one of my favorite activities in gym class. Why? I don’t know. All I can remember now are the many bruises around my ankles that would present themselves the next day.

Otherwise, I am still trying to figure out hockey – the kind played on ice, by adult men, who get into fights a lot . What I understand for sure is, that it is a really big deal in Canada. And the big die-hard hockey fans have to watch all the games. It is so big a deal that my mother-in-law allows her husband to eat dinner in front of the TV whenever it is “Hockey Night in Canada”.

What I don’t need any help with figuring out is food, especially cutsie sports-themed food. The star players in this hockey-puck-dip are peanut butter and Oreo cookies. I chose those in an attempt to make this snack appealing to everyone in the family, both the hockey fanatics and the peanut butter lovers (meaning: my husband – the non-hockey fan).

This dip is super easy to whip up – it took me less than 5 minutes. I then formed it into a disk shape by hand to represent a hockey puck. (Image courtesy to my husband Konrad – thanks darling!)

To make the dip the right color, I covered it in store-bought Oreo baking crumbs. You could crush some Oreo cookies yourself but it will look less uniform.

I piped the NHL letters with some melted white chocolate. I don’t quite trust my “hand-piping” so I pulled up a logo on my iPad, taped a piece of parchment paper over top, and copied the logo letters that way (ignore the soccer ball in behind the letters – I have no idea whats it’s doing there).

Pop the letters into the freezer for a couple of minutes. Then you can easily peel them off and place them on the hockey puck dip.

Enjoy the dip with some pretzel sticks or other hockey stick imitating “dipping tools”.

Peanut Butter Oreo Hockey Puck Dip

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons (28 g) butter, softened
  • 2 ounces (56 g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (125 g) peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (94 g) icing sugar, up to 1 cup
  • 4 Oreo cookies, chopped
  • Oreo baking crumbs, 1/3 to 1/2 cup
  • white chocolate for letters

Directions

  1. Combine softened butter, cream cheese, peanut butter and vanilla extract with your handheld mixer.
  2. Add the icing sugar 1/4 cup at a time and mix until incorporated after each addition. If the mixture seems very sticky add the additional 1/4 cup of icing sugar.
  3. Stir in chopped Oreo cookies by hand.
  4. Turn the mixture out on a piece of parchment paper and form into hockey puck (or any desired shape) with your hands. Chill mixture first, if it is too sticky to handle.
  5. Cover the top and sides of the hockey puck dip with Oreo baking crumbs. Remaining crumbs can easily be swept off the parchment paper.
  6. Pipe some lettering onto a piece of parchment paper with melted white chocolate. Place in the freezer for a couple minutes, then peel off letters and place on the hockey puck.
  7. Transfer the hockey puck to a serving plate and surround with pretzel sticks or other hockey stick imitation 'dipping tools'.

  1. That is so cute! I love that it’s shaped like a hockey puck. I played field hockey in school but that’s pretty different from ice hockey, or so I hear.

  2. LOL. Loved the story and this looks so cool!
    Yes, hockey in Canada is a HUGE deal. I learnt to love it otherwise I won’t survive in my house. It’s fun! Calgary is all about hockey in case it’s new to you LOL.

    How awesome is this!! I played field hockey, but it did not hold my interest for very long and I just can’t get into ice hockey. I can totally get into this treat, though! :)

  4. How Canadian! That was very inventive to use your iPad to pipe the logo!
