I like to get creative with our gifts to friends and neighbors.
it is hard coming up with new things-
but thank goodness for the internet.
just need to spend hours looking and finding.
see, all that time isn't really wasted.
so, anyways, this year, I got my idea from Bobbi jo.
a while ago she had posted a recipe for a cheese ball that she made at her church craft day.
sounded delicious, so I made some.
I am not sure what it is really called- so I will call it christmas cheese ball.
1 pkg chocolate chips
1c hard peppermint candies- I used candy canes
blend it all up in your blender or food processer-
then add 1/2 c of the mix to 8 oz of softened cream cheese.
I used 4 blocks of cream cheese, and divided them in half- and I still have tons of mix left.
guess what I am taking to my mom's on Christmas eve!
so, it goes a really long way. and is so good- on graham crackers. yum
I wrapped up the balls in saran wrap, then put them in a christmas bag from the dollar store- you know those clear kind, then punched a hole in the top of a pack of graham crackers, and tied them up with a tag that said- we hope your Christmas is sweet, not cheesy, and we really hope you have a ball.
I meant to take a picture, but they all got delivered last night!
thanks Bobbi jo,
and thank you internet!
