print recipe


  • 1 packet Roasted Garlic & Herb Cheese Ball Mix
  • 8 oz. softened cream cheese*
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 18-20 round, butter-flavored crackers
  • 36-40 pretzel sticks
  • 6 oz. can pitted black olives, sliced in half

cooking methods

  • No bake/cook


Combine Roasted Garlic & Herb Cheese Ball Mix and cream cheese. Chill 2 hours or until firm. 

Wet hands slightly and form cheese ball mixture into 1-inch balls. Roll in shredded Cheddar cheese. Set each on a cracker. 

Use a toothpick to make 2 holes in the top of each cheese ball. Place a pretzel stick in each hold. Place an olive on the top of each pretzel stick to form eyes. 

*Lighten it up: use light cream cheese instead. Fat-free will not set up properly.
