This is the BEST cream cheese ball you will ever eat! My friend Jen shared this recipe to me years ago and once I made it I have never looked back. I decided to make this cheese ball as a game day snack for my husband in the shape of a football and he was impressed! You could make it in the shape of a basketball for March Madness too!
There is a secret ingredient or two that really sets this cheese ball apart from the rest. I LOVE green olives and if you do too you will LOVE this recipe of course if you don’t you can leave them out! It has a nice creamy consistency too! If you don’t like green olives you can easily substitute green onions.
Did you know that you can freeze cream cheese? It works great and saves money! I like to purchase cream cheese in bulk on sale and stockpile it for recipes. Check out this post Can You Freeze Cream Cheese to find out how!
Be sure to give this Cheese Ball a try. It is out of the world delicious and perfect for game day! It is sure to make your next tailgate a huge success! Serve with any cracker of your choice.
