It’s that time of year again when I pull out my easy cheese ball recipe.  Last night I made two of these cheese balls:  one to take to a party today and one for us to enjoy at home.


Cheese Ball Recipe

12 oz. cream cheese
8 oz. cheddar cheese spread (I use 7 oz. because this is an example of another incredible shrinking food package.)
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp worchestershire sauce
3/4 cup of chopped walnuts

That’s it!  I allow the cheeses to soften at room temperature for a couple hours and combine everything in my KitchenAid mixer bowl.



The next step is to dump the chopped nuts onto a piece of waxed paper.  I like to make this piece of waxed paper big enough to wrap up the finished cheese ball.
I use a spoon to throw some of those nuts all over the cheese ball.  You will need to pick it up and roll the edges in the chopped nuts, too.

That’s all there is to it!


I store mine wrapped in the waxed paper in a plastic bag or container.

This is an easy treat to make to take to office parties or family gatherings.  Be sure to make an extra one to keep at home for yourself.  That’s what I did when I made this one.

What treats do you like to make to take to gatherings at this time of year?
