Holiday Cheese Ball


I made this recipe for a friend's holiday party a few weekends ago and it got so many compliments. The good news is it's incredibly easy to make and only takes a few minutes to put together. I'll definitely be making this recipe for future gatherings and parties.


Ingredients:
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 (8 oz.) packages of cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1/3 cup green onions, chopped
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1 cup sliced almonds (or more as needed)
Serve with crackers



What To Do:
 Soften cream cheese and mix together with mayonnaise. Add all remaining ingredients except the almonds in a large bowl and use a hand mixer on low speed to blend well. One mixed together well shape the cheese mixture into a ball. Layer of piece of plastic wrap on a plate and cover with sliced almonds. Roll the ball around until it become fully covered with almonds. Cover the ball with plastic wrap and refrigerate for approximately 2 hours before serving.


Enjoy!
