Best Cheese Ball Ever Appetizer

Perfect for holiday entertainingWith all the family gatherings that are bound to happen this holiday season I thought I would share with you one of my favorite appetizer recipes.  This Cheese Ball recipe is super easy to make, transport and shovel in your mouth hole.  I didn’t invent this recipe.  I’ve looked at the internet and seen this and variations of this all over the place.  But this is the one that I like the best so it is what I wanted to share with you.

Best Cheese Ball RecipeThere are not many ingredients so make sure that you use good quality items.  I think the blue cheese makes it for me but I understand that there are some people who think it tastes like feet so if that is you, just leave it out.

Best Cheese Ball Appetizer Recipe EverRoll it in a ball (or don’t) roll it in some nuts (or don’t) and eat it with Wheat Thins (I’m sure other crackers would work too but tradition states that you eat it with Wheat Thins.  You don’t want to eff with that do you?)

Cheese Ball and Champagne for holiday entertainingYou know when this cheese ball would work best?  New Year’s Eve.  It can sit out for a while without making all your guests totally sick.  Edible gold stars are like the jazz hands of the food world and really make this cheese ball next level.  Serve with some bubbles and party on.

  1. Love this! I’ll skip the Worcestershire Sauce and make it vegetarian :) Thanks!!!

  2. This look delish. I’m one of those peeps who isn’t a fan of blue cheese but this still looks like something I would eat like no one is watching.

  1. […] The basic cookie ball recipe includes a whole package of OREOs, a block of cream cheese and some baking chocolate.  Kristin and I are both really inspired by Christina Tossi of Momofuko Milk Bar and her ridonkulous Compost Cookies.  So we decided to create our version in cookie ball form.  But instead of creating a ball that you might eat like a truffle, we decided to make it a little bit larger (I LOVE me some sweets) and  serve it with dippers as you might with a cheese ball.
