Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 8 ounces of your shredded or sliced cheese of choice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup toasted sliced almonds or 1/2 cup freshly chopped mixed herbs
  • Crackers, for serving

Recipe Directions

  • Using your food processor, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, honey, salt and cayenne.  Process until smooth.  Add your cheese of choice and process until smooth.  Transfer the mixture to a sealable container and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  • Once firm, place the cheese mixture in the center of a large sheet of plastic wrap.  Wrap the cheese in the plastic wrap and use your hands to mold the cheese into a ball.  Place the cheese ball back in the refrigerator and chill until firm again, about 1 hour.
  • Remove the cheese ball from the refrigerator and gently roll in your coating of choice.  Serve with crackers.


Chef’s Tip: The cheese ball tastes best if left to sit at room temperature for 20 minutes before serving.
