Cracked Out Cheese Ball {Football Friday}

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball

Stop what you are doing and make this cheese ball! It is AMAZING! I might have eaten the whole thing by myself. Well, almost by myself. I shared a little with Chicken Legs and he LOVED it too!

This can be made several days in advance and stored in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it. Don't skip rolling the cheese ball in the chopped pecans. It really adds tons of great flavor to the cheese ball. We ate this with Wheat Thins Veggie Chips. We discovered the chips on a Southwest flight and went straight to the grocery store to stock up on them. If you don't want to use the Wheat Thins Toasted Veggie Chips for some crazy reason, any cracker will work fine.

  1. This looks SO good! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I had this at a Christmas party last week and couldn't stop eating it, but the platter eventually ran out of crackers.... So I am making it for my little family New Year's Party. :)

    1. You sound like me! I have no self control around this cheese ball! So glad to hear you enjoyed it.
