Mini Cheeseball Truffles #FavoritePartyFood

I love a good cheeseball.  My mother-in-law rocked the cheeseball. She made a pimento cheese one at Christmastime that was covered in finely chopped walnuts (walnuts my father-in-law gathered, husked and picked himself!) and served with Ritz crackers that I couldn't get enough of.  I believe that these mini, one-serving cheeseballs would have been a hit at her house!

This mini cheeseball has all the things my husband loves, cream cheese, bleu cheese, and bacon.  One cheeseball is enough cheeseball for about three Ritz crackers.  I love it because it looks nice all evening, but of course, they don't last that long!

I am giving you three different options for rolling the cheeseball, even though the basic cheeseball is the same for all of these.  It gives you three different options for your guests but you can just roll them all in the same coating.  Just allow for more coating toppings in the recipe.
