Christmas Tree Cheese Ball

INGREDIENTS

32 ounces (2 16-ounce) blocks of cream cheese softened at room temperature

¼ cup sour cream

½ cup chopped fresh dill divided

¼ cup chopped dill pickles

1 tablespoon pickle juice from the jar

1 tablespoon ranch seasoning powder

1½ teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

½ cup chopped cooked bacon divided (about 6 slices)

¼ yellow bell pepper

2 tablespoons diced tomato

INSTRUCTIONS

Mix. Mix together the cream cheese, sour cream, 1 teaspoon of dill, pickles, pickle juice, ranch powder, Worcestershire, Monterey jack, and bacon.

Make a cheese “ball”. Form the cream cheese mixture into a cone shape (to represent a Christmas tree). Use a funnel to help form the cone if needed.

Chill. Wrap the ball in plastic wrap and chill the “tree” in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

Cut. While the tree is chilling, cut a star or a circle out of the pepper. This will be the star for the top of your tree. Place a small toothpick half way into the bottom of the star.

Finish. Remove the tree from the fridge. Unwrap it and smooth out the sides with the back of a spoon or clean hands. Add the chopped dill to the tree either by rolling it through the dill or, taking a pinch of dill and dabbing it along the sides of the cone until it is fully covered. Add random tomato pieces around the tree for ornaments and then top with the bell pepper star by pushing the other end of the toothpick into the top of the tree.

Serve. Serve with crackers and other snacks.

Enjoy 😊
