Six Must-Try Easy Cheese Ball Recipes

You can’t go wrong when you serve a cheese ball at a party. It seems like everyone loves diving into a huge ball of cheese and spreading it on crackers and bread. But, buying a pre-made cheese ball at the grocery store can be dicey. Yes, it is hermetically sealed in a vacuum pack, but there is no way to really know how long it has been sitting there waiting to be bought. Plus, pre-made cheese balls are not inexpensive. Why spend your hard-earned money and take a chance that the product isn’t fresh or that your guests will not enjoy it? A better option is for you to make one of these tasty cheese balls the next time you have a party. Your wallet and your guests will be glad you did.

Pizza Cheese Ball

It is an undisputed fact that everyone loves pizza. But, if you are throwing a party, it might not be economically feasible to order enough pizzas to feed a crowd. This cheese ball offers the perfect alternative. It contains all of the flavors of your favorite pizza, rolled up in one delectable cheese ball. Spread the cheesy goodness onto some crisp crostini or breadsticks and you have a crunchy, bite-sized piece of pizza. Plus, you won’t have to worry about burning the roof of your mouth with this one!

Mini Cheese Balls in Phyllo Dough

If you love cheese balls, this recipe is a great take on them. Instead of having everyone horde in on the same large cheese ball and having it look like a dissected science experiment by the end of the evening, try making mini, single-serve cheese balls instead. One great aspect of these mini cheese balls is that you can cover them with nuts, just like a traditional standard-sized cheese ball, or you can crank it up and cover them in crumbled bacon. Either way, these bite-sized gems are simply delicious. Plus, since they are served in little phyllo dough cups, everyone will think they are getting a personalized gift.

Hot Cheese Ball

If you are looking for a little spice in your life, then this cheese ball is the one you have been waiting for. Mild cream cheese and sour cream get a kick from a few roasted jalapenos. The rest of the ingredients all combine to create a spicy cheese dip that is simply divine. This cheese dip goes great with tortilla chips or veggies. If you really want to kick up the spice another notch, roll the cheese ball in some crushed Smoked Jalapeno Cheese Crisps from John Wm. Macy Company. The combination of flavors is simply sinful.

Cannoli Cheese Ball

If you prefer something more on the sweet side, this cheese ball has you covered. Just when your guests are feeling dejected at not having a savory cheese ball to snack on before dinner, bring out this doozy for dessert. Soft cheeses are combined with powdered sugar and cinnamon and then topped with mini chocolate chips to create a divine dessert. Spread this tasty cheese spread on vanilla wafer cookies or graham crackers. Enjoying this dessert with a piping hot cappuccino is the perfect way to end a meal.

Festive Cheese Beach Ball

This cheese ball is the perfect appetizer for a large party. It is separated into several sections, each one highlighting a different type of cheese. Each section also has its own garnish on top as well, so there will most definitely be something for everyone. The finished product looks just like a beach ball, so it is perfect for a summertime beach party.

Party Cheese Ball

If you are a cheese ball traditionalist, this is the cheese ball for you. Several types of cheeses combine with some savory ingredients that are traditionally found in cheese balls such as Worcestershire sauce, onion, and garlic salt to create that familiar cheese ball flavor that everyone knows and loves. Roll the finished cheese ball in some chopped pecans to complete the look. Serve this cheese ball with some savory crackers, like Sesame Gruyere Cheese Crisps.

The next time you need to serve a cheese ball, forgo the nasty store-bought kind and opt for one of these delicious ones instead.  Making cheese balls is easy, and they taste so much better when they are made with your own two hands. Don’t forget to put out some tasty cheese snacks from John Wm. Macy Company at your next party, too. They are a great option for serving with any of these cheese balls!
