It's a Snowman Cheese Ball

Serves: 18
Total Calories: 73


2 cups shredded 4 - cheese blend
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives or green onions
1 (2-ounce) package slivered almonds, toasted
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper, or to taste
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 peppercorn
1 baby carrot


Mix cheese, cream cheese, chives, almonds, and red pepper well. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour. Divide mixture into 3 balls—small, medium, and large. Roll in Parmesan cheese. Arrange on serving dish small to large, like a snowman lying down. Decorate with peppercorns for eyes, mouth, and buttons, and carrot for nose. A green onion skin strip around his neck makes a scarf. Surround with crackers or cut-up fresh vegetables.

Fun Fact: A cheese snowman can also have raisin eyes, sliced black olive buttons (a sliver for a crescent mouth), and two pretzel sticks for arms. Cute to give him a vanilla wafer-marshmallow hat that sticks together with some of the cheese mixture. Your snowman may not melt, but he’ll disappear as he is spread on surrounding crackers.
