This cheese ball is always a big hit in our family. They also make a nice gift. My cousin made them smaller and gave them to her coworkers last Christmas.

Loved it! Can see making this for many a gathering, including this weekend!

Excellent. When making it I discovered that my husband had not bought cayenne pepper as requested. So I used a little Cajun seasoning and red pepper flakes to make up for it. I also doubled the hot sauce. I took it to work for snack day and it was gone before lunch!
