Frosty the Cheese Ball
Frosty the Cheese Ball was a jolly yummy treat
With a carrot slice nose
and two eyes made out of olives
Frosty the Cheese Ball is a fairy tale they say
He was made of cheese but the children
know how he came to the table one day…
O, Frosty the Cheese Ball
was as yummy as he could be
And the children say we could eat
and enjoy it with crackers today
Yummity Yum Yum

Add holiday cheer with this festive snowman shaped cheese ball. Take our classic cheese ball recipe and thanks to Pinterest, a great holiday theme. We created this appetizer for our children’s co-op Christmas party. It was nice to have something other than chocolate and candy.
To create the snowman features, we only a carrot and black olives. For the nose, cut a triangle out of a carrot. For the eyes, mouth, and buttons, I used a straw to cut out the circles from sliced black olives.
