For her party she wanted my homemade cheeseballs made into a "30". I was very nervous about how it would turn out, but was very pleased in the end!
I wanted to share the recipes for my cheeseballs with you, in case you were in need of a snack idea for New Year's Eve!
The first cheeseball is a recipe handed down to me from Hubby's grandma.
Beef & Cheeseball
3 pkg Budig brand beef (if you can't find Budig brand beef, I have substituted Ham and it work's fine. The only place I can find the Beef is WinCo if you have one by you)
2 blocks Philadelphia cream cheese
1 Tbsp Accent seasoning
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
5 green onions chopped
Open all 3 pkg of beef & stack, then chop the beef into small squares & put half of it on a plate spread out liberally. Combine the other half of the beef & the remaining ingredients. Using your hands squish it all together until very well combined. Form into a ball & cover in the remaining beef. Serve with crackers.
This second cheeseball is my sisters favorite :)
Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheeseball
8 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp light brown sugar
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup crushed chocolate cookies or extra peanut butter & chocolate chips to cover the cheeseball.
With mixer, beat cream cheese, butter, & peanut butter until creamy. Stir in sugars, cocoa, peanut butter chips, & chocolate chips. Form in a ball & roll in the crushed cookies or remaining peanut butter & chocolate chips. Serve with graham crackers & cookies.
If you would like to make the cheeseballs into a "30" like I did, then split the first cheeseball into 2 pieces, one a little more than the other. Roll the bigger piece between your hands like making a fat snake & set it down in a "c" shape. Then form the second half the same way as you see above.
Then mold the 2 pieces together
And cover it in the remaining beef (I used ham for this one).
Then serve both cheeseballs with crackers & cookies :) if you are brave & try this with other numbers I would love to hear about it! You could even make a "2014" for tonight!
Happy New Years! Have a wonderful night!
