Quick, easy and delicious – that makes a perfect appetizer, right? Well, these Mini Bacon Ranch Cheese Balls check all the boxes! So, for your next small gathering with family or close friends, whether it’s for a meal, holiday or Game Day, give these cheesy bite-sized snacks a try. And for a vegetarian option, leave out the bacon and add finely chopped bell peppers. You’ll also want to make sure let the cream cheese soften before combining the ingredients together. Trust us – it’ll be easier to mix!
- With a handheld or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese, cheddar and ranch seasoning until smooth. Add bacon and chives and beat again until fully combined.
- With a melon baller, a small cookie scoop or your hands, form balls with mixture. Then, roll the cheese balls in toasted pecans. Push a mini pretzel stick in the middle for easy presentation.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve.
