Cute and tasty for Halloween.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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. The Test Kitchen
