Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • It is best to let your cream cheese and sour cream get to room temperature so that you can mix them together nicely without creating lumps. 
  • Refrigerate this for at least an hour, or overnight before serving. You want to make sure that your cheeseball is firm prior to serving. 
  • Love bacon? Add some cooked bacon crumbles as you mix your cheeseball together. You can even add them to the top if you prefer.
