This was the first cheeseball I ever made and it was yummy. My girlfriend had a Christmas exchange party, meaning that the course you brought had to be an exchange in some way. My course was appetizers and decided to exchange for other holidays so I made this as the Halloween appetizer. I used light cream cheese and sharp cheddar w/bacon blend. Delicious and fun!

OMG! This is the best cheese-ball ever! Super simple & cheap. I used mozzarella & cheddar cheese (just what I had in my fridge @ the time), added bacon, & substituted ground pepper. It turned out great was super cute & every one complemented me at the Halloween party! Every one loved it, I loved it, & being a total misfit when it comes to recipes loved how simple it was. 5 stars!

I made this last night, and it was great! I used dried ranch dressing and freshly cracked pepper. I also used grated Monteray Jack cheese and it was so good! It also keeps well in the fridge, because I had some more today, and it was even better!

This is another of the dips that I chose to make this year for my Halloween party. The kids and adults both liked this cheese ball a lot!

This was a great addition to my Halloween party this year. I had co-workers come to taste my culinary and creative choices, and everything was a big hit! I used lots of fresh cracked pepper and it was so good! I had 3 different dips and balls, so I served this one with some wheat thins whole wheat crackers.

I love this recipe. I have never made it as a Spider, but I will have to try it. It is very similar to my Ranch Cheese Ball. It is addicting! Any time we have a family get together we bring it. I also use this same recipe without the pepper, to stuff pickled jalapenos and I use it in Grilled Stuffed Jalapenos as the filling for my Grilled Stuffed Jalapenos.
