Every Christmas Eve we have a family party and have all kinds of activities from Gingerbread making contests, to family skits. One of my favorite things to bring to the party is a cheese ball. I always used to go and buy one from the store, that is until I made this 4 ingredient ball. It is so easy and WAY better than any store bought cheese ball.
4 Ingredient Cheese Ball
2 (8 ounce) packages of fat free cream cheese, softened
1 (1 ounce) package ranch dressing mix
2 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
In a medium size bowl, mash the cream cheese. Mix the dressing mix and the Mozzarella into the cream cheese. (I mixed mine with beaters for about 2 minutes) Shape the mixture into a ball. Roll the ball in the chopped nuts. Refrigerate covered until ready to serve.
(quick tip: right after you roll it in the pecans, roll it up in saran wrap. You can even shape it better once the nuts are on it.)
