Snowman Cheese Plate
♫ Frosty the cheese ball was a salty, savory treat!
With a cracker hat and and carrot nose,
and two eyes made out of a capers! ♫
Not really the fanciest cheese plate but probably the CUTEST one you can make for a holiday party! He’s delicious too, I felt bad digging in.
1 package 8 oz. cream cheese
quarter of a stick of butter
1/2 envelope of powdered ranch dressing
1 teaspoon horseradish
sliced black olives
capers, for eyes (you could still use the olives if you don’t have capers)
pretzel sticks, for arms
crackers, for hat
carrots, for nose
In a medium sized bowl add your cream cheese and butter, mix until combined with an electric mixer. Add your ranch dressing and horseradish. Test the flavors to make sure they have the intensity you want, remember you can always add more.
When combined form two balls, one large and one small. They wont be perfect yet, the cheese is too soft. Place the cheese in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
Slice your olives for the buttons and mouth and the carrot for the nose.
When the cheese has firmed up smooth it out and place the large one on the bottom and small one on top for the body, add your extra pieces.
Tip: Leave some of the extra olives on the plate, they are really tasty with the cheese and crackers.
