The holiday season is full of delicious sweet treats to meet every sugar plum dream, but sometimes I like to make something savory to take to holiday parties. This cute snowman cheeseball is easy to make, delicious, and it’s adorable!

  • 2 8-oz. containers of cream cheese spread
  • 2 cups finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 Tbs. finely chopped green onions
  • 1/8 tsp. ground red cayenne pepper
  • Bottled parmesan cheese
  • Whole peppercorns
  • Baby carrot
  • Assorted vegetables and crackers

Allow cream cheese to sit on counter for about an hour. Combine cream cheese and shredded cheese in bowl. Add finely chopped green onions and cayenne pepper. Using a large spoon, combine mixture until ingredients are incorporated. Using your hands, separate into three portions and roll each into a ball. Sprinkle parmesan cheese in a thick layer on plate. Roll each ball in cheese until coated. Transfer to a large platter and arrange into snowman with three snowballs. Using peppercorns, create eyes, smile and buttons on snowman. Add carrot nose and cover lightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with your favorite vegetables and crackers.

I usually double this recipe to make my snowman twice as large for parties.
