“Super easy to make and really good great for the holidays. This recipe is for a small one, but it very easily doubles. No other cheese ball recipe sounded good to me, so I made this and it tastes great and looks so pretty too. I love it with vegetable Ritz. It will be a new favorite snack around your house--it's mine.”
