cheddar bacon ranch cheese ball
(makes 2 cheese balls)
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 (8oz) packages of softened cream cheese
- 1 cup chopped bacon or real bacon bits
- 1 envelope hidden valley ranch dressing mix
- 1 cup chopped pecans
when you’re ready to deliver your gifts, place cheese ball and crackers on a festive plate and wrap with cellophane. tie the “cheesey” tag on with ribbon and you’re done.download your 8.5 x 11 sheet of tags HERE.
That is such a pretty idea. One thing I do different with my cheeseball is I coat it in crispy bacon crumbles.
Wow, this looks delicious! I love the adorable tags! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you! These would make fabulous gifts for teachers.
I’ve made a recipe very similar to this for years, and it is always very popular. The only difference is the one I make is without bacon, but I LOVE the idea of adding bacon to this. Just never thought of it. Thanks!
I love a home-made cheese ball, so lovely as a hostess gift idea. Your recipe sounds delicious and your tags are adorable.
I loved when you did this last year. I still make recipes from your last years Holiday bake along–Thanks so much!
Love this cheese ball! Looks just divine!
What a great idea! And a great recipe. I’m going to try to give mostly homemade gifts this year, and to bring fun festive snacks to parties – I’ll be keeping this on my list! 🙂
Does this recipe yield 2 cheese balls? I notice you say divide recipe in half, then place in freezer.
Thanks very much. And thanks for the tags too! 🙂
