Easy Cheese Ball Recipe

This Cheese Ball recipe is a holiday must ever year! It’s incredibly easy to make and it only requires a few simple ingredients. It has a deliciously creamy texture, it’s brimming with rich and cheesy flavor, and who doesn’t love that nutty pecan finish for a contrasting crunch?

This is a go-to cheese ball recipe. It’s nothing fancy and far cheaper than creating some extravagant cheese board. Just good old fashioned comfort food with the classic cheddar cheese and cream cheese.

In this version of cheese ball you can add sour cream for extra creaminess and for a softer texture, then I like to add garlic powder, onion powder and a bit of black pepper for flavor. I’d recommend skipping the salt though, I know normally salt and pepper just go together but there’s already plenty in the ingredients and the crackers you’ll be serving it with. Let it rest at room temperature before serving for a softer consistency.


  • 2 (8 oz) pkgs. cream cheese, softened but still slightly firm
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 8 oz. shredded medium cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup Fisher Pecans, chopped small
