Port Wine Cheese Ball

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by cricketbird

I love this from the store, but too expensive. I found 1 recipe for this, and it didn't work. I messed around with it until it was what I wanted. The way my staff at work were acting, they think this is the best. I do too, and hope the people at recipezaar enjoy it as well.

So very good. Was a hit at the annual Glogg Christmas party. One person wrote they reduced the port wine from a bottle to just under a cup! Where does the recipe say a bottle? Unless you drink everything while making it instead of a cup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a food processor, combine cheddar cheese and cream cheese. Pulse the food processor on and off until the two are just mixed. Put this cheese mixture into a bowl.
  2. In the food processor, process butter until smooth. While the machine is running, pour in small amounts of Port Wine, processing steadily until well mixed.
  3. Add the port wine/butter mixture to the cheese mixture. Mix together with a spoon.
  4. Form cheese into a ball, roll in chopped pecans, or use walnuts if you'd rather.
  5. Serve with crackers.
  6. Enjoy!
