Celebrate the winter holidays with this colorful cheese ball! Looking for more holiday cheese recipe ideas? Check out our guide to building a cheese board for the holidays and get all the cheese you need for your Christmas or New Year’s Eve party in our online store.

A great cheese ball is a study in contrasts: a rich and creamy interior coated in crisp toppings like bacon, the umami punch of the cheese balanced by roasty toasty nuts or the brightness of dried fruit.

This festive cheese ball combines sweet and savory, spreadable and crunchy in one delicious bite. Serve it with crackers or bread along with a slew of other starters, or make it the centerpiece of a lavish cheese board.

Make prep easier by toasting the nuts and crisping the bacon up to 24 hours in advance. You can also blend the cheeses, dried fruit, and chives together and refrigerate them for up to one week before you serve. Form the balls and wrap them tightly in a layer of plastic wrap, then in a layer of aluminum foil. Allow them to come to room temperature for a few hours before you roll them in the toppings and serve.
