Get into the holiday spirit with the most festive cheese ball you’ll ever see! In just under ten minutes, wow your dinner party guests with this perfect appetizer!
In a large bowl, mix in local cream cheese, local cheddar cheese, onion, mustard and pepper sauce until well combined.
If making two trees, divide in half or if making one leave as whole. Refrigerate mixture until firm enough to shape.
Place cheese mixture on a parchment lined baking sheet. Shape mixture into a cone to look like a Christmas tree. Roll tree in parsley and/or press parsley evenly onto tree.
Press dried cranberries onto the cheese tree diagonally in a row to form a garland. Press bell pepper pieces onto trees for ornaments. Top tree with a star shape cut from a block of local cheddar cheese. Serve with crackers.
