Cheese Ball Bites
Mini Cheese Balls are everything you love about an ordinary Cheese Ball, only personal sized! The zesty ranch cream cheese ball recipe smeared on a crunchy cracker is the best appetizer around.
Servings: 16 cheese balls
- 16 oz cream cheese room temperature
- 1 pkg ranch dressing mix
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup almonds chopped or crushed
In a stand mixer or using an electric hand mixer, mix together the cream cheese, ranch dressing mix and shredded cheese.
Once mixed, chill in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
Place the chopped almonds in a bowl.
Spoon 2 tbsp worth of cheese ball mixture into the bowl of almonds. Cover the cheese ball mixture with the chopped almonds and then roll the cheese ball into a ball.
Set aside and repeat with remaining cheese ball mixture.
Store in the refrigerator and serve with crackers.
