I've made this for years! It's so awesome and addicting. It's definitely not an ordinary cheese ball, but everyone will love it and ask for the recipe.

Very delicious and easy. I use 16 oz of neufchatel instead of cream cheese to cut down on fat, 1/4 cup of Worcestershire and 3 green onions. yum :)

This is one of my favorite recipes...well, it's very close to the one I always used (haven't made it in years). The recipe I used was actually a spread. I used to make it every year for Christmas parties because the red, green and white was so festive. I used to call it Christmas Ribbon Spread. The differences were subtle....8 oz cream cheese instead of 11 oz and 1 tablespoon Accent instead of 1/2 teaspoon. Here's an idea. This Christmas, think I'll make it as a cheese ball and then "tie" the green part of the green onions into a bow...or maybe press the strands around the ball vertically and horizontally (like a wrapped Christmas gift). Then I can call it a Christmas Ribbon Cheese Ball. Thanks for reminding me how much I love this recipe!
