Fun Food For Festive Feasting - Recipe 2

Cheese balls. I adore cheese balls! They're so cute and colorful and just scream PARTY! While they can be quite costly to purchase, they're so easy and economical to make at home. AND there's like what, a million flavors of cheese out there, so you can make up your own recipes, add diced vegetables and top with nuts, dried parsley or other herbs. PLUS, easy peasy, they can be made in advance of your party and refrigerated! A real time saver during this hectic month! So, why not try the recipe below? CHEESE PARTY!

Holiday Feta Cheese Ball (kraftrecipes.com)
2 pkg.  (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
2 pkg.  (8 oz. each) ATHENOS Traditional Feta Cheese, coarsely chopped
¼ cup  sliced green onions
¼ cup  finely chopped red pepper
1 cup  PLANTERS Walnut Pieces, finely chopped
MIX cream cheese and feta cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Cover.
REFRIGERATE several hours or until chilled.
SHAPE into ball. Roll in chopped fresh parsley, if desired. Serve with assorted crackers.

Enjoy and please come back for tomorrow's festive recipe!
Hugs, Leena
