A great cheese ball for garlic lovers. Spicy enough to give a little zing and creamy enough to satisfy anyone. Serve with all kinds of crackers or bread.

It was kind of flavorless the day I made it and after it sat overnight in the fridge the Ranch dressing mix flavor was overpowering. I won't make this again. Read More

We absolutely loved this recipe and made a small change...we rolled it in a paprika chili flake and parmesan cheese mix to give it a little extra kick and brighter look Read More

I made this cheese ball for Thanksgiving yesterday and it was a HUGE hit! I even substituted Neuf-chatel for the cream cheese and it still worked out wonderfully! My niece (who is a chef) commented "I won't be a bit offended if this shows up again at Christmas!" Read More

I was only looking for a white cheeseball recipe so I could make it into an igloo for my cream cheese and black olive penguins (from this site). What I found was a very tasty and easy to make success. I was a bit leery about the "too salty" comments but I believe that I resolved that when I added an outer layer of whipped cream cheese to cover up the flecking from the ranch dressing. The extra cream cheese seemed to take away some of the saltiness. This cheeseball was a big hit with my family and much easier to make than my usual one. Thank you so very much for posting this wonderful addition to AR. Read More

Great recipe. I used a stone ground mustard and used 2tbsp instead of one. Had extra cream cheese on hand due to other reviews about it being too salty but didnt find it to be overwhelming at all...and I hate salt. My family attacked this cheeseball. Definitely will make this again.:-) Read More
