Louisa made this easy cheese log is just a few minutes—it’s very kid-friendly!
Holidays mean cheese balls and crackers at our house. Here’s a yummy recipe that is easy enough that the kids can make it themselves! Put the ingredients in a bowl, let the kids smoosh it all together and shape into a “snowball” or a log shape. Roll firmly in chopped almonds until they are imbedded and smooth. Top with a sprig of parsley.
Easy Cheese Ball
1 lb. medium or sharp cheddar cheese, grated (4 cups) at room temperature
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1 teaspoon grated onion or 2 green onions finely sliced
2 tablespoons celery, finely minced
Let cream cheese soften at room temperature. Mix all ingredients well in a bowl and form into 2 balls or log shapes. Roll in chopped or slivered almonds. Serve surrounded with crackers.
