A Carrot Cake Cheese Ball

Are cheese balls making a comeback? Perhaps, but to be frank they’ve always been delicious when made with the right ingredients. This adapted recipe from Great Balls of Cheese by Michelle Buffardi is made with cream cheese, sweet fruits and veggies, and toasty walnuts. Find out how to make it below!

The Inside-Out Carrot Cake Ball appealed to my perverse love of carrots and pineapple together. Graham crackers? Hellz, yeah! When do you get to serve graham crackers at grown-up affairs, unless you’re s’moring it up? The combination of creamy cheese, crunchy nuts, and chewy raisins hit all my sweet spots. The only thing I added to this kooky recipe was a little cinammon and nutmeg. If I made this again, I’d serve it with celery sticks for dipping. And I’d make a half batch. This makes a gargantuan orb.
