MoM T "This Snowman Is A Real Cheese Ball!'

Best Blogger Tips

Last night I had a Progressive Dinner to go to and I signed up for an appetizer.  So, I decided to make my infamous Holiday Traditional Cheese ball!  I got up early that morning and made it really quick before I had to go to work, so it had time to chill in the refrigerator.  When I got home my husband suggested I make my cheese ball into a snowman, because I had extra ingredients left over from the original one I made earlier.  So, we put our creative juices together and came up with our new character.  He truly changes the way you will look at a Cheese ball because he is one!!  This Snowman Cheese ball will have your friends talking about it and your kids wanting to befriend it! 

3 8oz. pkgs. Cream Cheese
3 scallions (green onions) chopped
1 pkg. Ranch Dressing mix
1 pkg. Budding Brand Pastrami
1 c. chopped pecans
2 pkgs. Ritz crackers

11 pepper corns
1 small carrot
2 bamboo sticks or toothpicks

In a medium size bowl, add cream cheese (all 3 pkgs) ranch dressing mix, pastrami and scallions.  Mix with either wooden spoon or by hand thoroughly.  Place in refrigerator for one hour.  Separate into 3 different size balls for snowman. (Save a little extra cheese mix to put together snowman's hat)  One large, one medium and one small size ball.  Roll each ball onto chopped pecans.  Press pecans against cheese ball to secure.  Place on your favorite holiday appetizer dish.  Place two pepper corns for eyes and three pepper corns together to make buttons for belly, repeat three times.  Place carrot for nose and take the ends of your scallions and wrap them around snowman's neck for his scarf.  Fray the ends of your bamboo sticks to make arms.  Take access cheese ball and Ritz crackers to make hat, by making the form of a hat with access cheese and breaking the ends of three Ritz crackers and placing them around cheese and then putting it onto the top of one whole Ritz cracker for the bill of the hat.  This is a great party attraction!
