Cheeseballs were an ever-present item at food events while I was growing up.  I remember a cheddar cheese ball rolled in nuts as the standard. Everyone knew that it was best to wait until the cheese warmed up to room temp before eating it, or it would break your crackers.  I used to adore those little cheese knives, too.  I always appreciate a darling cheese knife!

I love using this Happy Farm Cheese in my cheeseball.  There is a lot less mess when you make it and it is ready to eat when you are finished.  Right out of the cup is a firm and spreadable texture. It also melts so you can serve it on burgers, fries, hot dogs, whatever you like to have cheese on!
