World Series Baseball Cheese Ball

Baseball Cheese Ball 
Pretzels & Pepperoni 

We do love baseball at our house, and we love cheese balls.  So here is my latest creation...

8 oz cream cheese
1 pound of finely grated cheeses 
(for this one I used 1/2 lb mozarella, 1/2 cheddar
1 cup pretzels (or chopped nuts)
1 oz pepperoni

1.  Grate the cheeses into a medium sized bowl.
2.  Drop in the cream cheese and blend slightly with a fork.
3.  When it is mixed a little, knead with your hands to blend the cheeses.
4.  At this point you can add, green onions, bits of pepperoni, or even bacon bits.
5.  Crush pretzels or nuts using a food processor or knife.
6.  Roll the ball into the pretzels or nuts.
7.  Cut thin strips of pepperoni and push the ends into the cheese ball with a toothpick forming the "stitches" on the ball.
8.  Refrigerate until used.
Serve with crackers. (I used pretzel crackers.)

Of course, you realize these make great "footballs" too when those Super Bowl parties come around.
