Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a simple and cute Halloween cheese ball. I have had similar cheese balls but they're coated with crushed cheese tortilla chips. Coating with finely shredded cheese is a much tastier method. It prevents the cheese ball to get soggy. The only problem with this recipe is it's so cute I didn't want to eat it!

Note: Crackers are great, but it's great with celery too.

Ingredients

2 pkg
cream cheese, 8 oz each
2 c
grated cheddar cheese
2 Tbsp
Worcestershire sauce
1 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
black olive and leafy part of celery stalk for garnish
