I needed something easy and quick to bring to a get together with a bunch of ladies. I had crackers in the house already and started to go on the hunt. All the ingredients were on hand and you probably will have them in your kitchen as well. I always thought cheese balls look so pretty and they are so yummy but figured maybe they were hard to make. It was really easy, so give it a try. Just prepare to take the cream cheese out early so it can be soft or buy the ones that are soft already.
