Amy's Beer & Ranch Cheese Ball

Recipe by AmyMCGS
READY IN: 3hrs 15mins




  • Reserve one cup of cheese.
  • In a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients (I use a hand mixer to make sure it's combined well).
  • Push mixture together in the center of the bowl, making a ball shape, cover bowl, and refrigerate 2 hours or longer.
  • Place a large strip of plastic wrap on the counter top.
  • Sprinkle remaining cup of cheese over the center of the plastic wrap.
  • Place cream cheese mixture in the center of the shredded cheese, and use plastic wrap to mold into a ball.
  • Roll the ball to completely cover in shredded cheese.
  • (I often use more than one cup of cheese to completely cover the cheese ball).
  • Wrap the formed cheese ball in plastic wrap and refrigerate one hour or until serving.
  • Serve with hearty crackers such as Wheat Thins or Triscuits.
