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.

Wonderful! These are so fun and colorful on a platter. I did the trio, which was perfect, since each one was a favorite for various party guests. Thanks for sharing! ZWT6

Made as written for ZWT6 & these baby cheese balls are very tasty & a pretty cool idea too. You hold your drink in 1 hand while you stab a cheese ball w/the other hand like you would a meatball. We liked all 3 options, but I was partial to those w/chili powder. I used a tea-strainer to sprinkle the chili powder & dill on them after chilling, but easily rolled the others in the sesame seeds as suggested. Thx for sharing this fun, easy & tasty recipe w/us, CG :-)

This was certainly an easy appetizer to make. I used all of the different seasonings to make three different varieties of cheese balls. My family, who were over for a BBQ, said they liked the dill ones best and that overall they liked the appetizer, but did not love it. The cheese balls certainly plated well. I served with crackers just in case guests were so inclined. Thanks! Made for ZWT6.
