What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…
For our Christmas party last week, I tried something new. I wanted to have an appetiser that was tasty and easy to eat, but also festive and fun. I’d seen all sorts of stuff on Pinterest and then it struck me – cheese ball! I know I know, how is it possible that I’ve yet to make a cheese ball?! I’ll blame my dad – he’s allergic to all things milk. Anyway, I looked up a bunch of different recipes and it seems you can do anything with the cheese ball as long as you start with cream cheese. I’ll share my particular mixture below, but I can’t wait any longer to show you the cuteness. Here it is my cute and festive snowman:
He’s got olives for eyes and buttons, a cucumber peel for a scarf, the traditional carrot for a nose, and waffle cigarettes for arms. His hat is cut from whole wheat bread and attached with a toothpick. He’s even dusted with parmesan snow =D
And now the nitty-gritty of building Frosty – actually, I named him Fred =p
I hear that you can also make a pretty awesome cheese ball Christmas tree…
These were my inspiration:
What’s your favourite cheese ball combination?
