With just a few days till Christmas, I’m sharing with you my Christmas Tree Cheese Ball. This Christmas Tree Cheeseball just might be the most festive and delicious holiday appetizer recipe!
I wish I could take credit for this scrumptious recipe but one of my colleagues at work, Tina Kiani, was kind enough to share her recipe with me.
I served this cheeseball at my Christmas/birthday party and it was a huge hit.
Worcestershire Sauce: 1 tablespoon
Cream Cheese (room temp): 1 cup
Shredded Sharp Cheddar: 1 cup
Blue Cheese (room temp): 3/4 cup
White Onions (dice): 1/4 cup
Parsley (chopped): 1 bunch
Grape Tomatoes: 1 pint
Yellow Bell Pepper: 1
Place all the cheeses, onion, and Worcestershire in food processor until you get a smooth consistency.
Roll into a ball and cover with plastic wrap.
Chill for 8 hours.
Create the tree shape using your hands (in a v-shape with palms together) on a clean kitchen counter. Just roll the mixture back and forth and shape as you go.
Once your Christmas Tree Cheese Ball is formed, you’re ready to decorate. I recommend starting with tomatoes, then adding chopped parsley, followed by almonds.
Use a yellow pepper to create the star on top of the tree. If you have a star cookie cutter you can use this that otherwise, cut out the star with kitchen shears rather than a knife.
Your Christmas Tree Cheese Ball is now ready to serve. I promise it will be the merriest appetizer on your table!
Serve with crackers!
