Apple Cinnamon Cheese Ball

One of my friends made something similar to this at a party, and I loved it. I asked for the recipe but lost it, and ended up trying to make it by memory. It may not be the original recipe, but its darn good! It has a sweeter taste than your average cheese ball. Excellent with Sesame Seed Crackers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In medium to large bowl, combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and cinnamon. Beat until well blended.
  2. Stir in apples until evenly distributed.
  3. Shape mixture into a ball by rolling it around inside the bowl.
  4. Once ball is formed, pour crushed nuts into a second bowl, and roll cheese ball in the crushed nuts until the outside is covered.
  5. Presenting the cheese ball on a plate, place cinnamon stick and bay leaf in the top of the ball to make it look like an apple.

I wasnt sure what form the cheddar cheese was suppose to be in so I shredded it finely. This is a very cute cheese ball. I served it with pretzel "chips"
