Roasted Garlic Bacon Ranch Snowman Cheese Ball

Here at my house I’ve been gearing up for festivities with my side of the family at my house on Christmas Eve.  It’s been a long couple of days making salted chocolate fudge, peanut butter chocolate fudge, orange creamsickle fudge, red velvet and sugar cookie candy cane kiss thumb print cookies, and creme brulee.  

I just finished my Roasted Garlic Bacon Ranch snowman cheese ball and I am about to get cracking on my chocolate glazed canoili pie.  It’s going to be a delicious dinner tomorrow night!

Ingredients:

  • Whole garlic bulb
  • Cooking oil (I used avacado oil because it can stand high tempature cooking)
  • Extra Sharp White Cheddar Cheese 1/2 block of 2 lbs cheese block
  • Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning packet to taste
  • 7 pieces of bacon
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce 
  • 8 Oz cream cheese
  • Whole peppercorns
  • Baby carrot
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Peel off the papery outer layers of a whole clove of garlic bulb and cut off the tips.  
  3. Rub cooking oil over the exposed tips and wrap in foil.  Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until tender.
  4. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and bake 7 pieces of bacon for 11 – 15 minutes or until desired doneness is achieved.
  5. Grate half of the 2 pound block of white cheddar and preserve 1/3 of it for later.  Mix thoroughly cheese with package of cream cheese, add worcestershire sauce, chopped cooked bacon, and 3 or 4 cloves of garlic (or more if desired).
  6. Form two balls and roll each one with preserved grated cheddar.
  7. Use a potato peeler to peel baby carrot to a point.
  8. Stack balls on top of each other, add carrot and peppercorns to the head and body to make it look like a snowman.

This is super cute, festive, and incredibly delicious! It will have your family begging you for the recipe! Merry Christmas everyone!
