Amazing Pineapple Cheeseball Recipe

Nothing goes better at a party than a cheese ball with crackers. It is delicious, elegant, and easy to prepare. This pineapple cheese ball recipe is the perfect cheese ball because it is slightly sweet with a little “hm” what is that mixed in. It is so yummy it will become a favorite with kids and parents alike.

The Best Cheese Ball Recipe

Start with 2 blocks of cream cheese

In a bowl mix 2 blocks of cream cheese.

Add 1/2 cup chopped pepper

Chop up 1/2 pepper (any color) and add to the cream cheese.

Add 1/2 cup crushed pineapple

Add 1/2 cup crushed pineapple with the extra liquid squeezed out.

Add 1 TAB finely chopped onion

Add 1 Tablespoon finely chopped onion. (Don’t skip this, it contrasts with the sweet pineapple beautifully)

Blend ingredients until well combined

Sprinkle lightly with salt and mix all the ingredients in the mixer (or by hand) until well blended. Chill.

Hint: Chilling not only makes it easier to shape and coat with walnuts, but it also allows the flavors to blend. I like to allow at least 2 hours, but overnight works too!

after chilling, mold into a ball and roll in walnuts

Using your hands, shape the cheese mixture into a ball and roll in walnut pieces. Place on cheese platter and serve with your favorite crackers. I like Sociables best!
