Cute Santa Cheese Ball

I featured an adorable Christmas Santa Cheese Ball several years ago in my 25 Creative Christmas Party Appetizer post. The photo and recipe was featured on familyfun.go.com, but the website is no longer available. I loved it so much, I made a version of the Santa Cheese Ball for my latest Christmas party. Isn’t he cute?

Here is a photo of the original Santa Cheese Ball from Family Fun.
