Pretty Dipped Cheese Balls

Pretty Dipped Cheese Balls

Yield: 32 pieces
Prep Time: 40 minutes
Additional Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 40 minutes

What a fabulous snack with whole grain crostini, olives and a lovely glass of wine... You light the fire, I'll get the glasses.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tbs. half and half
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2/3 cup sharp white cheddar, shredded
  • 1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup gorgonzola, crumbled
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper
  • Assorted fresh herbs, finely chopped
  • Pecans, chopped
  • Dried apricots, finely diced
  • Short skewers or lollipop sticks

Instructions

1. Add all the cheeses, half and half, worchestershire, salt and pepper to a mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer, beat cheese mixture JUST until lumps are gone.

2. Scrape the mixture into a small storage container, cover and chill for at least 1 hour.

3. While cheese mixture is chilling, chop and dice the roll-in ingredients. (pecan, herbs and dried apricots) Combine the pecans and apricots in one low dish and the herbs in a second low dish for rolling the cheese balls.

4. Once cheese mixture has stiffened a bit by chilling you can start rolling your cheese balls. WET you hands and take 1 tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a 1 inch ball. Place on a wax or parchment paper lined rimmed baking pan.

5. When all the cheese mixture is finished, roll half the balls in the chopped herbs and the remaining cheese balls in the pecan-apricots. Place back on the rimmed baking sheet, cover lightly with plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve.

6. Remove from refrigerator when ready to serve, insert a stick into each cheese ball and place on a serving platter or bowl.

Notes

Chilling the cheese mixture for a least an hour helps to make rolling the balls much easier. WET HANDS HELP TO KEEP THE CHEESE FROM STICKING.
