While scouring my old cookbooks, found this in my Company's Coming Pint Sized appetizer cookbook! Like having your own mini cheese ball... mmmmm.... Posted for ZWT #6!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 5 ingredients (to seasoning salt), mix well, and shape into walnut sized balls.
  2. Roll 1/3 balls in sesame seeds, 1/3 in chili powder, and 1/3 in dill or make them all one kind if you prefer.
  3. Put in the refrigerator to chill and set!

This recipe made 16 baby cheese balls. I froze them after shaping them and coating them in sesame seeds or the chili powder. After thawing them, I put a thin pretzel stick in each one for people to pick them up with. I took them to a picnic and came back with 8 of them. A few people commented to me that they liked them but I don't think anyone went back for seconds.

I went with the chili powder and must admit I was lazy and made this into a dip just for me. Great with crackers. Thanks! Made for ZWT#7 by a fellow Food.Commando.

What a cute idea! I had a 5 yr old helper on this recipe. He helped shape the balls and rolled them in the seasonings. We each had our favorite with the sesame seeds & chili powder being the biggest hits. Served with crackers & raw veggies for ZWT6.
