White Chocolate Hazelnut Cheese Ball

Kimi Gaines


My Friend Cindy and I have been collecting recipes that are in the shape of a ball. One day we were naming all kinds of food. We started laughing so hard she had to excuse herself to the restroom and I was trying to breathe. So every time I see a recipe to add to our list I send it to her. We say we could write a cookbook of food shaped into balls.
