We had so much fun making this snowman cheese ball. This is the perfect recipe to make for any winter party.

We made our Snowman Cheese ball for our Christmas Eve party this week. It would also be perfect for a New Years Eve get together. 

I apologize in advance for the fact that my kids are still in their mismatched PJ’s for this recipe. Sometimes though, it is just too much to fight with anyone to get dressed, am I right?

You will need:

2 8oz packages of cream cheese, softened

2 cups mozzarella cheese
Items for garnish like peppercorns, carrots or asparagus spears
Plastic Wrap

To get started, soften two packages of cream cheese and add to a bowl.

Next, mix in your favorite seasoning packet. We did a Knorr Vegetable packet, but you could do onion, ranch, Italian, anything you’d want!

Finally, add in a cup of mozzarella cheese.

Mix it all together.

For the next part, you will need 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Scoop about a cup of the cheese mix onto one. The remaining mix onto the other. 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 in a bowl. Unwrap each ball and roll them in the bowl with the cheese.

Assemble the snowman. We use peppercorns for the eyes, buttons and mouth; a piece of carrot and asparagus for the arms.

Serve your snowman cheese ball with vegetables, crackers or pita chips.

Three Cheese Spinach Dip

Serve with Apple Cider Bread

This cheese ball is a hit every year! Everyone always gobbles this up. I put it on a platter and make a different "scene" every year. I have fun using various veggies decorations to make it more fun; green and red pepper slices for a scarf, celery and broccoli "trees" etc.
