How to Make a Cheeseball

Updated on April 18, 2011

Perfect Holiday Cheesball


You can vary many of the ingredients in this cheesball to taste. This is the recipe that gets raves whenever I serve it at a holiday function!


  • 1 8oz. package cream cheese
  • 2 cups grated extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 pkg. Ranch salad dressing mix (do not use dip mix)
  • 1/2 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. sour cream
  • 1 cup sliced toasted almonds
  • 2 tblsp. deviled ham

In a small bowl, mix Ranch dressing mix with mayo, milk, and sour cream. It is double the strength of the recipe on the pkg, but this will give you a better flavor.

In a seperate bowl, mix cream cheese, deviled ham, grated cheese and add in 1 cup of dressing mixture. Mix on low speed with hand mixer until creamy. Freeze mixture for one hour

Remove mixture from freezer and form into a ball with hands. Roll ball in sliced almonds, which you can crush to get better coverage. Chill until ready to serve!

* This recipe makes a very large cheeseball, so I usually divide it to make two smaller cheese balls.
