Day 360 - Do You Want to Build A Snowman?

Day 360 - Do You Want to Build A Snowman?

Hey, all. Some of us may have snow on the ground and have created a snowman or two this year. When I was a kid, building a snowman was almost the only thing to do in the winter other than sledding the giant hill behind my childhood home. There was something refreshing and magical about building a snowman. It was truly a celebration of winter. 

Flash forward thirty plus years and now my kids are begging to build a snowman. However, we live in California where snow only happens on the mountain slopes. Instead of breaking their little hearts that building a snowman wouldn't be possible this year, I told them it was time to get creative.

If you live somewhere where snow is plentiful, today create a snowman. If you live somewhere where snow is at a minimum, try creating this delicious cheese ball snowman. Either way, celebrate the joy of the winter season today.

Snowman Cheeseball

  • 2 - 8 oz lactose-free cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups finely shredded goats milk Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 small carrot
  • about 10 small capers
  • butter crackers

Step 1: Whip the cream cheese in a stand-up mixer for about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and whip 1 more minute.

Step 2: With a paring knife, carve a small carrot nose. 

Step 3: Made 2 balls of cream cheese, one slightly smaller than the other. Roll each in the Monterey Jack cheese. Place the larger ball on a serving plate and then the smaller ball on top of the larger. Decorate the snowman with the carrot nose and the capers.

Step 4: Serve with the butter crackers and smile.

Until tomorrow holiday spirits.
