This is my favorite cheese ball recipe on the planet and it’s so very simple. You can even dress it up with a flower or something festive for any occasion. Around Christmas time, I put a fake poinsettia flower in the cheese ball on the side that I buy at the dollar store. 

How to Make the Best Cheese Ball Recipe

  • 1/2 c of black olives, chopped
  • 1/2 c of pecans, chopped


Let cream cheese and butter sit out at room temperature. Mix throughly all ingredients except pecans. Form into a ball and place in the refrigerator overnight. Take the cheese ball and roll in the pecans.

It serves 20 (it makes plenty)

I am not a fan of black olives, but I adore this cheese ball. It doesn’t seem to have a strong taste of blue cheese either. It’s just simply divine.

If you need another appetizer, be sure to try our Dill Pickle Dip and Maple Bacon Smokies. They are divine too!
