Cute and Yummy Snowman Cheeseball

A snowman made from cream cheese and finely shredded mozzarella cheese!!

(I'll bet you thought that was shredded coconut!)

Cheese Ball Recipe

2 - 8 ounce packages of cream cheese
1/2 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese
1 clove of garlic, minced (optional)

Mix the garlic (if desired) into the cream cheese.

Roll cream cheese into two balls, one smaller than the other

Roll each ball in the finely shredded mozzarella cheese.

Build your snowman.

Add peppercorns for eyes, mouth, and buttons.

A little shred of carrot for the nose.

Arrange on a plate with crackers, bagel chips, etc.

(My sister says this would be great with a jar of pepper jelly!)

He's pretty cute to bring to a party and pretty easy to make, too.

Can you believe we got 3 inches of snow today? I hurried to make this before it was dark outside because I wanted to take pictures of the "snowman" in front of a window so you all could see our snow.

See the twigs I painted to look like white birch branches? I put them in my front window boxes and did a post on them HERE.

He's almost too cute to eat.

Wouldn't he be a nice addition to YOUR party? And so easy to make. You could put whatever spices you want into this recipe, don't you think?

Here is another cheese ball that I serve in the Fall and winter. Very easy and basically the same recipe as for the snowman cheese ball. It makes huge fun at a party, also. Click on the picture to find out what I used for a stem.

Pumpkin Fudge-this is so delicious. Easy, too (the recipes I like best are easy ones).

    This is fantastic, as you say almost to cute to eat, but don't think it would last long in our family.
    I am trying to follow you as I love your blog, but can't get any of the buttons to work, could just be the bad South African internet, I don't know.
    I hope that you have a fantastic day.
