Is there anything cuter than a snowman cheese ball during the holidays? Celebrate the season with this adorable appetizer which is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser. It is quick and easy but does require some setting time before serving.
Snowman Cheese Ball:
1 large tub of cream cheese (approx 334 grams)
1 small tub of cream cheese (approx 250 grams)
1 package ranch dressing powder
1/2 cup finely grated parmesean cheese
2 pretzel sticks
2 chocolate chips
2 m & m’s
1 box crackers (we used Carr’s Table Water cracked pepper crackers)
Basil leaves for garnish (optional)
Mix together softened cream cheese (1 large tub + half a small tub) and ranch powder mix. Roll into a large ball and small ball and place in plastic wrap in the fridge to set for 1-2 hours. If you are in the rush you can put the two cheese balls in the freezer for approx 30 minutes as well! Once set, roll the two cheese balls out onto the parmesan cheese to give the snowman the snowy effect. Add two pretzels for arms, chocolate chips for eyes, the tip of a large carrot for the nose and m & m’s for buttons down the front. Place snowman on basil leaves for added garnish and add crackers for nibbling.
