Cheese Ball

A definite must for New Year's celebration at our house. Cheese balls are really simple, but have lots of visual interest and taste. They are great to take along for a hostess gift too.

2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1 package (8 oz) light cream cheese
2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped

  1. Place all ingredients, except for pecans, inside mixing bowl. Mix until well blended.
  2. Place cheese mixture into the center of a piece of plastic wrap, or waxed paper. Form into a ball.
  3. Roll ball in the pecans. Chill in the refrigerator.
  4. Serve with assorted crackers or raw vegetables.
