Ranch & Cheddar Cheese Ball


Yet another dish that I made for Sara’s baby shower.  This is my favorite.  It is so yummy. If you like ranch dip and cheddar cheese, you will love this cheese ball.  You won’t believe how simple it is to make an elegant cheese ball.  Of course the styrofoam paper plate I put it on to transport looked awfully redneck, but oh well.  And again, it is a triple batch so it wouldn’t normally be as large as it is in the picture.



2 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
1 (1 ounce) package ranch dressing mix (I used Hidden Valley Ranch Dip mix)
2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups chopped pecan
Assorted crackers

In a medium size bowl, mash the cream cheese.  Mix the dressing mix and cheddar cheese into the cream cheese.  Shape the mixture into a ball.  Roll the ball in the chopped nuts.  Refrigerate covered until ready to serve
