This Easter Chick Cheese Ball Recipe is an easy appetizer that’s also fun and cute for Easter Sunday! Made with only 7 ingredients, this delicious cheeseball is wonderful with crackers, pita chips, or veggies.
8-ounce package cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green onion
2–4 ounces thinly sliced beef deli meat (chopped)
Finely shredded cheddar cheese
7 Baby Carrots
2 Black Olive Slices
Crackers (for spreading)
1. Place cream cheese, 1 cup of shredded cheese, onions, and beef into a mixing bowl. Mix with hands or a spoon until well combined.
2. Shape cream cheese mixture into a ball. Roll the entire ball in shredded cheese, pressing the cheese into the ball and pack well.
3. Place the cheese ball on a serving plate. Place 3 baby carrots on the bottom near the left of the ball for feet, as shown. Repeat with the right side. Place one baby carrot in the middle of the face for a beak, 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. Serve and enjoy!
–Prefer a vegetarian cheese ball? The beef deli meat may be omitted.
–This cheese ball is easy to customize! Some ideas: cooked bacon pieces can be used instead of the beef deli meat, onions can be left out if you prefer or you can use finely chopped roasted red bell pepper instead, use other types of shredded cheese inside of the cheese ball, etc.
