A Tasty Christmas/New Years Cheeseball You’ll Love and Enjoy!

One tradition I grew up with was making a Christmas cheeseball. My mom spent ours making dozens of these delicious cheeseballs to hand out to neighbors as a Christmas gift.

We loved the cheeseball so much, often times, we would make sure to have another cheeseball for New Years Eve!

The best part about this cheeseball, is that there are ONLY five ingredients.

Don’t forget to buy your favorite crackers to go with, then dig in!
