White Chocolate Cranberry Cheese Ball

Maggie May Schill


I made this epic cheese ball for a Thanksgiving gathering. My husband said it was weird to have a sweet cheese ball. He's used to those cheddar cheese ranch dressing lumps of cheese dip. However it was a real hit at the party. It sort of tastes like a mound of cheese cake.
