Four Ingredient Mini Cheese Ball Recipe

Everyone loves a good Cheese ball including the cook when there are only  four ingredients and a few minutes involved in preparation. 

4 Ingredient Cheeseball Recipes

Make these easy cheese ball recipes for any occasion. I made them for a December birthday party for my husband.

Can I get a witness for December babies? They usually get little recognition. My hubby is an early December baby.

This year, we actually pulled off a nice little surprise party for his birthday! It was an intimate little family soiree. We enjoyed good food and watched a Christmas movie together. Our grandchildren thought it was an injustice that their Papa had never seen Home Alone and they wanted to right that wrong. What better birthday gift could a grandparent enjoy but spending time with their favorite people!

I wanted all the grandchildren to have their own personal cheese balls, no sharing required so I whipped up these super simple recipes for Four Ingredient Mini Cheese Balls using some favorite flavors.

Place the mixture in the refrigerator and chill for about 20 or 30 minutes.

Remove from fridge and shape into small balls, about 2 Tbsp. each. We want them small enough to fit comfortably on top of a good party cracker.
