Easy Cheese Ball

Louisa made this easy cheese log is just a few minutes—it's very kid-friendly!

Holidays mean cheese balls and crackers at our house. Here's a yummy recipe that is easy enough that the kids can make it themselves! Put the ingredients in a bowl, let the kids smoosh it all together and shape into a "snowball" or a log shape. Roll firmly in chopped almonds until they are imbedded and smooth. Top with a sprig of parsley.

Easy Cheese Ball

1 lb. medium or sharp cheddar cheese, grated (4 cups) at room temperature
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 to 3/4 cup ranch dressing
1 teaspoon grated onion or 2 green onions finely minced
2 tablespoons celery, finely minced

Soften cream cheese, mix all ingredients well. Form into ball and roll in chopped nuts. Chill. Serve surrounded with crackers.
