Scoop up one cup of the cheese and place cheese mixtures onto a piece of plastic wrap and the remaining mix onto another piece of plastic wrap. Wrap them both up and roll them into a ball.

Put the wrapped balls in the refrigerator for about two hours to firm up and the flavors to meld together.

After they are done in the fridge, put about a cup of mozzarella cheese, white cheddar or a different cheese in a bowl.

Unwrap each ball and roll them in the bowl with the cheese. The cheese ball can be placed in the fridge until it’s time to eat. 

Assemble the snowman on a serving plate with the large cheese ball on the bottom, followed by the smaller ball.

Decorate your adorable snowman cheese ball by making the snowman’s face and buttons using peppercorns ; a piece of carrot and asparagus for the arms. Isn’t it just the cutest thing?

Your Christmas appetizer can be left out at room temperature for 2-3 hours.
