Lets face it I love cheese balls and will make one from just about anything I can think of!!!
They are great for so many occasions. You can shape them how ever you want, and everyone loves them too. Your friends and family will think you are so cleaver when you show up at a tailgate, game day party or super bowl party with this wonderful cheese ball.
