Artichoke Cheese Ball – Kraft Fresh Take

I was recently contacted by the folks at Kraft and they asked if I would like to take part in their Fresh Take Flavor Makers program. I gladly accepted.

Have you seen the new Kraft Fresh Take Cheese and Breadcrumb mixes in the cheese section at the grocery store? I’ve seen them, but I hadn’t used them until now.

Part of the program is to make a couple of recipes using one of the varieties of Fresh Take. I was challenged to make an appetizer using the Classic Four Cheese variety. I decided to make an artichoke cheese ball. The Fresh Take packet made this super easy. I mixed the cheese packet into the cheese ball mixture and rolled the cheese ball in the bread crumbs. The cheese ball was super delicious. It had all the flavors of an artichoke dip. I had a hard time controlling myself around it – I wanted to eat the whole thing myself!!

 Stay tuned for another challenge recipe and a giveaway! #KraftFreshTake

  1. We bought one of those packs a while back. Never ended up using it and it went bad. I needed your creativity.

  2. This is such a great idea! I have never used these before but just picked up two while they were on sale at Publix. I see a cheese ball in our future! Thanks for the idea!
