Expert Tips

  • Sliced apples make a fun addition to this appetizer. Toss them with lemon juice to prevent browning.
  • Cheese balls can be stored tightly covered in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks or in freezer up to 4 weeks. Thaw frozen cheese balls in the refrigerator about 6 hours before serving.
