Super Bowl Cheese Ball


With the super bowl right around the corner we thought this was a super fun idea for a great appetizer to eat during the game. Not only is this cheese ball super delicious but it is super festive. You are sure to wow your guests with a cheese ball in the shape of  a football. Once I tried one bite of this cheese ball I could not pry myself away from it. It was so addicting!                                                          -Heather

Ingredients

2 packages of cream cheese (8 oz each)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese1 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup miracle whip
2 green onions dices
Crushed Pecans
Sliced Pimentos ( they come in a little jar)

Instructions

Allow  cream cheese to soften in microwave for about 20 seconds. Then mix cream cheese, Parmesan, cheddar cheese, and miracle whip in a bowl with a hand mixer. Blend well and add the green onions last. Allow mixture to cool in refrigerator for about 2 hours so that it will be easier to mold. Then mold into the shape of a football and then stick the crushed pecans to the outside of the cheese ball. Place about 6 sliced pimentos parallel across the top of the cheese to make the lines on the football. Serve with crackers or celery...or whatever the heck you want!
