The first time I made a homemade cheese ball was my Pina Colada Cheese Ball. It’s another great one for holidays and get-togethers. Before making that one, I used to think making cheese balls would be complicated but quickly realized that they are easy to make and so delicious.
Easter Chick Cheese Ball Recipe
You’ll need only 7 ingredients (see the bottom of this post for exact amounts) to make this Easter Chick Cheese Ball recipe:
- Cream Cheese
- Finely Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Finely Chopped Onion
- Green Onions
- Thinly Sliced Beef Deli Meat
- Baby Carrots
- Black Olive Slices
To make your Easter cheese ball, you’ll place the brick of cream cheese, 1 cup of shredded cheese, onions, and the beef into a mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients together until well combined.
With the cream cheese mixture still in the bowl, shape it into a ball.
Place shredded cheddar cheese on a place and roll the entire ball in the cheese, pressing the cheese into the ball so that it will adhere to the ball.
Finally, place the cheese ball on a serving plate. Take 3 of the baby carrots and press them under the bottom front left of the cheese ball to resemble feet. Repeat with 3 carrots on the front right side. Press one baby carrot into the cheeseball near the top middle to create a face, as shown. Press two olive slices for eyes slightly above the “beak” carrot. If necessary, remove a bit of the cheese in the area to help them adhere.
To serve, place crackers, pita chips, or veggies (like celery), around the Easter Chick Cheese Ball. Guests can spread the cheese ball mixture on their crackers, etc to enjoy.
