Ingredients

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 tablespoon milk

6 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American finely chopped

1 tablespoon sliced green onions

1/2 cup finely chopped peanuts

18 pretzel sticks

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Beat cream cheese and milk in bowl on medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. Add cheese and green onions. Continue beating until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour.

  2. STEP 2

    Shape mixture into 1-inch balls; roll in peanuts. Place pretzel stick into each ball.

Tip #1

- To pack along, wrap cheese balls in plastic food wrap. Be sure to keep in a take-along cooler so the cheese stays cold. Place pretzel stick in each ball at serving time.

Tip #2

- This cheese mixture can also be shaped into a log and rolled in chopped peanuts. Serve with assorted crackers.

I you want something quick and easy that requires no baking and is easy for traveling...this is it. I made the cheese mix and refrigerated it over night.

I made these as refreshments for a music recital--and I received recipe requests. They are attractive, delicious, and easy to serve and eat. I have varied the cheese choices with good results as well.
