I’m making some appetizers for a family Christmas party tonight and wanted to bring something a little more “cheerful”….I typed in “Snowman Cheese Ball” and Voila! A winter wonderland appeared right before my eyes! Serve with crackers and/or veggies!

Frosty- you ARE adorable.

Snowman Cheese Ball Recipe

Prep time:  
Total time:  Serves: 15
  • 2 8 oz cream cheese
  • ½ cup chopped green onions
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  • 4 cups freshly shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ tsp of cayenne pepper
  • ½ cup of Parmesan cheese for rolling
  • 15 Peppercorns for eyes and buttons {you may not have to go out and buy these if you have a pepper mill take some out of it!}
  • 1 baby carrot {slice it for a nose}
  1. Beat cream cheese, green onions, almonds, & cheddar cheese together.
  2. Divide mixture into 3 balls- one large, one medium, one small.
  3. Roll each ball in Parmesan cheese.
  4. Place peppercorns on as buttons, eyes and smile.
  5. Place a slice of your carrot on for a nose.
  6. Serve with crackers/and veggies!

This method looked “Comfy” so it was the chosen one…I doubled it and changed it around a bit with the ingredients I had on hand. You can do the same! Enjoy!  


  1. Anyone else have trouble mixing this? It’s almost too thick for my hand mixer. Guess I should’ve gotten out the kitchen aid.

  2. Is it 28 oz. of cream cheese, 2, 8-ounce packages of cream cheese, or what? I would like to make this for our New Year’s Eve party. Thank you!
