A party is not complete without yummy food, right? Whether it’s a birthday, holiday, or a night with friends, snacks and treats are basically a requirement.
If you’re hunting for the perfect party snack, this Celebration Cheeseball is the solution to your questions!
First of all, it doesn’t call for any odd ingredients. Cream cheese, sour cream, garlic powder, onion powder, worcestershire, cheddar cheese, and walnuts or pecans. Pretty normal, right?
Next, it’s quick to make. Mix everything together in the blender for just a minute or two. Let it sit in the fridge for an hour while you do other stuff. After an hour, shape it into a ball using your hands, and dip in nuts. Aside from resting in the fridge, it probably takes no more than 10 minutes to prepare. For a homemade party snack, that’s hardly any time spent in the kitchen. Which leaves you with plenty of time to clean the house, make drinks, or decorate.
Thirdly, it tastes amazing! Ordinary cheeseballs contain cheddar cheese, cream cheese, and sour cream, plus some spices. But the key ingredient – don’t skip out on this – is the worcestershire. It adds a flavorful depth that will keep your party guests coming back for another serving of cheeseball.
Have a party coming up? Try this Celebration Cheeseball! Serve it with crunchy stalks of celery or your favorite cracker. (Hint: cut the cheeseball with a knife because crackers aren’t strong enough…no one wants a cheeseball covered in crumbled crackers!)
