I am all about making something that looks fancy but is so easy peasy to put together! This simple cheese ball recipe definitely fits this category! I like to mix it up ahead of time and just pop it in the fridge for later. You could totally take this with you to a party or gathering, set it out if you’re hosting, it is perfect for so many occasions! This probably sounds so silly, but I feel like I am sharing a little piece of my past with you! I have been making this exact cheese ball for years y’all, YEEAARRSSSS. I can remember this being one of those simple recipes I learned right out of college, and if I needed to bring a dish to a potluck or event – this was my go-to! If there was a social gathering, you could depend (or place bets!) on me to bring this cheese ball! Tested, tried, and true by Yours Truly – give it a test run with your fam!
Whip this up for your New Year’s Eve event!
