Cheesy Spring Appetizers


As I told you yesterday, I had some fellow mommas over to my house, and of course I had to make some fun Easter and Spring inspired snacks. Today I will share with you the cheesy snacks I provided, and in the next few days I will be sharing some of the other foods we snacked on.

First up was some cute cheddar cheese slices that I cut into little bunny and flower shapes using my cookie cutters. I served these along with some Ritz crackers. Perfect for the toddler set.

Next I made a bacon ranch cheddar cheese ball using up the leftover cheese from the bunny and flower cuttings along with some extra pre-shredded cheddar cheese blend. Once the ingredients were mixed up, I shaped the cheese mixture into a triangle carrot shape and pressed some of the extra pre-shredded cheese onto the outside of the cheese carrot. Next I tucked some fresh flat leaf parsley into the top of the carrot and put some triangle triscuits around for serving. See the recipe I used below...

Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball:

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese at room temp


1/2 (1/2 ounce) package hidden valley ranch dressing mix (dry)

1 cup cheddar cheese

5-6 pieces of crumbled bacon

1 tbsp. chopped green onion or chives (optional)

1 tbsp. Sour Cream (optional)


I used my food processor to mix all the ingredients together, then turned it out and shaped it into the carrot shape.
