Here is a fun treat for New Year's Eve!
A yummy little cheeseball ALMOST too cute to eat.
2 - 80z. packages of cream cheese - softened
minced garlic to taste - I usually use two toes
optional - minced onion to taste
About 2 cups grated monterey jack cheese
and white sharp cheddar cheese
raisins for eyes, buttons
carrot tip or sliver of cheddar cheese for nose
ribbon or fruit snack for scarf
rye breads for hat
In the bowl of mixer blend softened cream cheese
(put aside about 1 tablespoon for hat)
add minced garlic and onion
add about 1/2 cup of combined cheeses
place cheese mixture in saran wrap and place
in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Remove from freezer and form into snowballs
Roll balls into remaining grated cheeses
stack and secure with a skewer
I cut the hat out of the mini deli ryebreads
with my measuring cups and a small paring knife.
