Easiest Ever Cheese Ball

Debbie Thurmond


This is a snap to make! I make many of these for Christmas gifts. Wrap the Cheese Ball in plastic wrap. Gather at the top and secure with curling ribbon. I tie on a festive cheese knife, which are very inexpensive and come in sets of 4. Once my bow is tied, I curl the ribbon ends. Add a sleeve of your favorite crackers and you have a great gift.People look forward to receiving these every year.
