How to make cheese balls:
Mix the seasoning mixture with the cream cheese. Form balls and wrap them in plastic wrap to cool. Once you’re ready to serve, roll the balls in the Parmesan cheese and decorate them like a snowman!
You can choose to have the snowman cheese ball stand upright, as pictured here. Or it can lie flat on its back, making it more stable and easier for guests to sink into. Either way, it’s really cute!
Tips for success:
- If you want to mix a few other spices into your ranch dressing, you can! Sprinkle in some cayenne pepper if you’d like to add some spice.
- Refrigerate the cheese balls for at least a few hours (and up to three days) before using.
- You can decorate your snowman with whole peppercorns, mini M&Ms, a carrot tip, or any other edible items you’d like.
