Mini Cheese Balls

Raven Higheagle


These Mini Cheese Balls are a perfect appetizer or snack for parties. I make them at most of our gatherings and they are always a big hit! Trust me, you can’t go wrong with some ooey, gooey cheesy balls and a beer on the side. Plus you can have these delightful treats done in less than 30 minutes as they are super easy to make.
You can combine parmesan and cheddar cheese or use parmesan and a blend of chesses like mozzarella, provolone, fontina, romano and asiago.
