Snowman Ranch Cheese Ball


1 pkg cream cheese, softened (room temperature) - I use 1/3 less fat cream cheese

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives

1/2 packet ranch dressing mix

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese


Baby carrot


1. Mix first five ingredients in a mixer until thoroughly combined.

2. Shape into 3 balls, one large, one medium and one small then roll each in the parmesan cheese to coat. Place on a serving tray like a snowman.

3. Use peppercorns as the snowman's eyes, buttons and smile, and cut a sliver of the baby carrot for the nose. Serve with your favorite crackers! 

Note: You can also shape into one big ball if you prefer.
