I don't have a recipe but I have a friend who makes a chocolate chip cheeseball she serves with graham crackers - it is amazing! I'm sure you could find a recipe online.


Oh my gosh, Melissa...I love these! Aqua & red...what could be better? I don't have a cheeseball recipe...but, now I'm hungry for one!

You just bless me everytime with your creations but especially when you use red and aqua! It's my very fave! It is drool worthy and these are amazing! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! God Bless!


SO pretty Melissa. Have a great holiday!

The aqua sure makes your cards pop with fun color. Sorry I can't help with the cheese ball recipe. I've never been too good with appetizers. Hugs.

Beautiful cards Melis!!! Love the color combo, you are amazing!!
I have never made cheese ball, but I found this one and it seems to be really easy and yummy:
You got to tell us about that smoked turkey, it sounds delicious!!


Love love LOVE these cards! I am SO in love with Aqua, Red and White this year... my tree is red and white, and I am sooo tempted to add some aqua to it!!

Anyway, enough about me... BEAUTIFUL projects, and I wish I had my mum's old cheeseball recipe, because it was delicious. Alas, I am no help :( Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

So the color fact I have a red & white tree, and this year decided to add Teal to it.....I couldn't think of one cheesball recipe as I have made most of mine from Tastefully Simple mixes....but I made a snowman one last year I saw on Pinterest and it was adorable, but I changed mine to easy, it is on my In The Kitchen Board Recipes I have tried if interested...but make sure you read what I did...have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

I love your beautiful, vintage cards and the wonderful colors that you selected. Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Unfortunately, I take the lazy route when it comes to cheeseballs. I visit the cheese counter in a wonderful little store near my home. I hope that someone else can help with your search.


Came by for a bit of inspiration, you always work for me! Anyways I do make a feta ball around the holidays and as long as you like feta and garlic, it's a hit!

8 oz. cream cheese(softened)
8 oz. feta cheese
1 large clove of minced garlic

Mix together until well combined and form into a ball, chill a couple hours and roll in chopped scalllions. Serve with chopped tomatoes and chopped black olives.
Makes a pretty plate with the scallion covered feta ball in the middle and the tomatoes in a circle around it and then the black olives around the tomatoes. I serve it with rice crackers. You can use any kind of crunchy hard cracker. It's addicting!

Have a wonderful Holiday Season!!!!

Gorgeous cards Melissa!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your sweet family!

I may be a little late in commenting but do have a wonderful family favorite recipe for a cheeseball. While it's my husband's specialty as I've never made one myself, I thought I'd share the recipe. This is one that is sought after by my 2 grown kids, relatives and even co-workers request my husband make one for our annual Christmas party. Give it a try:
2 packages of cream cheese
shredded cheddar cheese (he just shreds and mixes till he gets his consistency he likes, no measurements here)
lemon juice (maybe 1-2 TBS)
a lot of green onions
worchestchire sauce
cayanne pepper to taste (he likes a bit of a kick)
We serve with crackers (Triscuits are his favorite) and I like it on a toasted bagel. Hope you enjoy!
