Top Review by Pamela

A perfect party treat! I added 1/2 cup more cheese and 1/4 cup chopped green onion. This is such a simple recipe and such a sanity saver because you can even make it the night before and chill it overnight. I have made this cheese ball over and over and it always disapears quickly!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first five ingredients, beating until smoothly blended.
  2. You can do this easily in a food processor.
  3. Shape into two small balls and roll in nuts.
  4. Chill several hours, or overnight, to let flavours blend.
  5. (You can also shape it into one big ball, but it's preferred to do two so you can whisk away the first one when it's almost gone and put out a fresh new one).
