[Christmas treat] Heath Bar Cheese Ball

We have a Christmas Eve tradition of sorts.  You see, our Grandpa is Santa.  Not just any Santa.  THE Santa.  So, he's a little busy on Christmas Eve.  Which interferes with Christmas Eve dinners and such.  Our Christmas Eve dinner has evolved over the years.  It's pretty casual.  We usually invite Grandma to come and hang out with us.  We have ham and rolls.  We have chips and veggies and dip.  We have our special Christmas punch.  And we have crackers and cheese.  This year, I thought I'd add a new "cheese" dish to the line-up.  It isn't exactly dinner fare.  It's more like dessert.

Let me introduce you to...

Heath Bar Cheese Ball. 

Yummo!  Really it's just a version of cream cheese frosting all rolled up in a ball and sprinkled with delicious heath bar bits and mini chocolate chips.  You will want to serve this with sweet cookies and crackers.  I rounded up some cookies,  honey wheat pretzels,  and vanilla wafers. I wanted to make some waffle crisps--but I have officially run out of time.  So we made do. This also makes a great Christmas gift since the recipe makes enough for two.  Are you going somewhere for Christmas Eve dinner?  Just wrap up your festive cheese ball in some plastic wrap, bag some cookies and crackers, and place it in a cute box or container.  Add a bow and a gift tag.  Instant hostess gift.

May you have a fantastic Christmas Eve with your loved ones, enjoying all of the wonderful things
this season brings!

If you missed this for Christmas. don't fret!  It's also a great New Year's Eve treat.


  1. THis sounds like the most ridiculously scrumptious thing I've ever heard of. Like you would have to put me in a straightjacket and tie me to a tree to keep me away from this stuff. And then to put it on butter cookies? Nirvana.

  2. Sparkling--that's hilarious! Let's hope it doesn't come to that. Enjoy!
