Ingredients

  • 8 ounce package cream cheese softened
  • 2 cups finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup Hidden Valley Ranch Roasted Garlic
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped broccoli
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red peppers
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow peppers

Instructions

  • Beat softened cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add the shredded cheddar cheese and ranch dressing to the bowl.
  • Mix until well combined.
  • Scoop small spoonfuls of the cheese mixture and roll it into small balls. I was about to make 36 mini cheese balls. Place the garlic ranch cheese balls in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.
  • While waiting for the cheese balls to harden, finely chop the vegetables. I used broccoli, carrots, red and yellow peppers. I chopped enough, so that I had about 1/2 cup of each. The peppers had a lot of liquid, so I pressed on the chopped peppers with paper towel to soak some of it up.
  • Remove the cheese balls from the freezer and coat them with the chopped vegetables, gently pressing the veggies into the cheese. I coated some of the cheese balls with just one veggie and others I coated with a mixture of the veggies.
  • Place the veggie cheese balls in small triangular crackers or pita chips before serving.
