I haven't made this recipe, however I make a pineapple cheese ball for special occassions and last week I made one for a Christmas party so I shaped it in to a snowman and put it on my Author Court platter and sprinkled powder sugar at the bottom and then spread out Ritz snow crackers around the head of the snowman. It was really cute. I used peppercorns & a carrot for the nose, mouth & buttons... :) The receipe is 1 8oz cream cheese, 1 can crushed pineapple (well drained!!!), and powder sugar to taste - mix well & chill for at least an hour, then form in to a ball. :) Yum!!

This recipe is so much fun to make...it's very easy to assemble and so adorable when you're finished! I double the recipe to make a larger snowman, as I make it for a crowd at Christmas time. The only thing I do differently than the recipe is to use shredded white cheddar in place of regular cheddar...this just makes the snowman turn out "whiter." You'll only need to use a little bit of a baby carrot trimmed into the shape of a nose. The great thing about this recipe is that it not only looks festive and cute on your table, but it tastes delicious! :)

I make it every year for home to enjoy on Christmas day, and for our weekly game of pinochle at the Eagles cub the week before Christmas. I make it just the way the recipe says, and it's a hit every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cheese ball is a hit every year! This cheese ball is a hit every year! Everyone always gobbles this up. I put it on a platter and make a different "scene" every year. I have fun using various veggies decorations to make it more fun; green and red pepper slices for a scarf, celery and broccoli "trees" etc. This has become a Christmas tradition at my house. (I leave out the almonds 'cause I don't feel they add much as far as flavor.)If you enjoy a good cheese ball I highly recommend this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is so darn cute and super easy! This recipe is so darn cute and super easy!! Mine turned out way better than the picture - I also used pretzels for arms. I made a couple of changes - I omitted the cayenne and used shredded pepper jack cheese. I also used pecans instead of almonds. It was very tasty but guests were afraid of ruining it because it is so cute. I think next time I would just make a single cheeseball so that guests would be more likely to dig in!!

I made this recipe for my husband's work Christmas party - and everyone raved about how cute it was and loved the way it looked, but not much of it was eaten?? Tasted great to me! I'm making it again - for the family Christmas - we'll see what they say! I also used the White Cheddar - and it turned out exactly like the picture. Had a hard time finding slivered toasted almonds though!

The only thing that is wrong with this recipe is that it is so decorative that no one wants to be the first one to dig into it. However, after the first cut is made (it is always in the largest ball), it goes quickly. I love making this recipe! By the way, I am making the snowman today for a Church social.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable! Adorable! This was a hit. I used pretzels for arms but the kids kept eating his arms! LOL! I've given the recipe to 3 folks and made it twice. The second time I used grated cheddar/colby cheese with jalapeno and omitted the cayenne. Great flavor either way. I served with low-fat wheat thins. Great!
