It’s the most wonderful time of the year for gathering with friends and family over delicious food. Appetizers are my favorite thing to serve around the holidays no matter the theme. And no party is complete without cheese. So I’m sharing this simple and creamy cheese ball made with Kraft Natural Cheeses!
I love having simple recipes to pull together for entertaining around the Christmas holidays. And this cheese ball is perfect. It can be made in just 15 minutes. Pop it in the fridge for about an hour. Pull it out. Roll in the bacon and parsley and you’re good to go with a homemade appetizer that’s appealing for all!
Some days I think my world revolves around cheese and in some cases it does. The entire family is cheese fanatics. It’s part of most meals and lots of afternoon snacks. And I love that it’s better than junk food. I’d much rather the kids grab a cheese stick or cheese chunks than a handful of candy.
