Say hello to the wonderful world of cheese balls. No seriously they are one of life’s greatest things because cheese is involved. Cheese is a lot like bacon and one can never have too much of either. Well you can but that’s not the point here.
Parties need to have cheese whether it comes in chunks or in the form of a cheese ball. Don’t let these masters of art scare you because they are super easy to make and you really can make different flavor combos.
Today I’m all about the salted caramel cheese ball. Too many people are scared to involve chocolate with savory but once again I’m here to prove my point that it just WORKS. After making crab cakes and a spice rub with chocolate it was time for me to involve it with cheese.
Now this can be a sweet appetizer or you can also put it down on the dessert table. The choice is all yours… no really it is. The salted caramel comes from the crushed brownie brittle crumbs that I used for the outside coating.
Oh and next month I’ve got even bigger plans for chocolate and cheese…. You just wait and see.
