Can I make the cheeseball ahead of time?

Yes you can! You can make the cheeseball filling several days ahead. Then assemble the whole thing if when you need to.

If you don’t have the space in your fridge just make the cheeseball ingredients. Make the bottom of the snowman and the second part. Wrap it in plastic wrap tightly. Put it in a air tight container until your ready to assemble the snowman cheeseball. You will just have to put the snowman together and add the extra cheese, his eyes, scarf ect.

How to make your Cheeseball

In a large mixing bowl, using a spoon or spatula, blend the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, and Monterey Jack cheese, until smooth.

 Remove from the mixing bowl and place the mixture on a large piece of plastic wrap or parchment paper.

starting to form the snowman

Form the mixture into one medium-size ball, and one small ball from the cheese mixture.

Place the medium-size ball on the corn skewer, and then place the smaller one on top of the larger ball. 

Cover the balls in the shredded mozzarella cheese, and place on a plate, and then in the refrigerator. 

Cut the Black Olives in small pieces, and set aside.  Cut the tip off of a small Carrot – for the Nose – and slice a thin strip of Red Pepper for the Scarf. 

Remove the cheese ball from the refrigerator, and place the black olive pieces on the cheese ball for the eyes, mouth, and buttons down the front. 

Place the small carrot tip in the center of the face for the Nose. Then place the red pepper strip around the cheese ball at the bottom of the small ball, for the neck. 

Place crackers, bagel chips, garlic chips, or crusty bread around the snowman cheeseball for dipping, or spreading. 

What are corn skewers?

You will be using a corn skewer to keep this snowman cheeseball secure and steady.

Corn Skewers are wooden Skewers that are used for Corn on the cob, and are about 4 to 6 inches in height, and much bigger around that a regular wooden Skewer.  They will hold the cheese-ball much better than a regular wooden skewer. 

Everything Bagel Snowman Cheeseball

Let’s face it the holidays just would not be the holiday’s with a cheeseball. In this cheeseball the Everything Bagel seasoning steals the show. If you’re new to trying this seasoning, you’re really going to love how it tastes.

It’s so scrumptious and has a wide variety of flavors. We like to use it for a number of tasty dishes but this is probably at the top of our list. Mixing it in cream cheese and spreading it on our bagel. Or making this cheeseball even if it’s not shaped like a snowman. You really can’t go wrong her folks!

Can I shape this cheeseball into something else?

You sure can! We have made this shaped into a regular cheeseball (surprise! not very creative) It’s great for any holiday gathering just grab cake mold. for instance maybe a lamb or bunny for Easter. Or shape it into a pumpkin for Halloween. And a football for gameday or Super Bowl. Anything goes as long as the recipe and flavors are there.

No matter what shape you choose you will still get that sweet and salty flavor from the cream cheese and the everything bagel seasoning.

How long will my snowman cheeseball last?

Big bonus is this snowman cheeseball will last for about a week or so. We never have it last that long but since it’s made with fresh ingredients know it will last a good long time.
