How to Make Blue Cheese and Black Olive Cheese Ball

Step-by-Step

  1. Get cheeses and butter to room temperature and then beat together. Add olives and chives. On parchment paper, roll into a ball. Then pat nuts into the ball. If you can find the shelled sunflower seeds, they are GREAT with this. But if you can't, pecan pieces work well also.
  2. Cover and chill in refrigerator until firm. Serve with plain wagers, bagel chips, or toast points.
