A long time ago I ate a cranberry cheese ball that I had made from a mix that I bought. I loved it! Well I have no way of getting that mix anymore, so I came up with my own recipe. It is sweet and tart. This isn't your average cheese ball! You will love to serve this at your next holiday gathering!
