Individual cheese balls that look...and nice for a gathering.

Top Review by Sudie

These just didn't make it. They looked adorable, but the taste was very bland. I used neufchatel cheese and reduced fat cheddar, so maybe it was my choice of cheeses that was off. I hate to post negative reviews, especially for such a well-regarded cook, but these weren't easy to make and were not worth the trouble in my book.
