Buffalo Ranch Cheese Ball

Hey there, friends!





Happy new year! I know, I know... January is almost over at this point. I'm getting adjusted at my new counseling job and it's just been a crazy couple months. Really a crazy couple of years! It feels so good to finally be done with grad school and to officially be licensed as a counselor... with my LPC license and all  :)

So point being, I hope to post more this year! That's my goal for 2015. I think I'll have more time to devote to the good ole blog that I miss so much.

Now it's time for this month's Secret Recipe Club!!!!

This month I was assigned to Bobbi's blog, Bobbi's Kozy Kitchen. She's been blogging for a few years now so it was great to peruse through her many recipes! I was so inspired! I was so tempted to make her fancy Bacon Wrapped BBQ Cheeseburger Meatloaf because PJ and I both are not huge fans of meatloaf but are determined to find a recipe we love. And don't even get me started on these adorable, creative Deluxe Cheeseburger Kabobs. Why had I never thought of that?!? Definitely making these this summer. PJ claims he doesn't like ribs so I'll definitely be making her Thai Ribs to prove him wrong  :)

But for a quick and easy appetizer for the conference playoff games this weekend, we made her Buffalo Ranch Cheese Ball. It was so easy, no cooking required... just some chilling in the fridge and you've got yourself a nice, spicy, cheesy appetizer. You can add whatever you like to it! Maybe some chives or green onions would be nice  :)




Buffalo Ranch Cheese Ball 
from Bobbi's Kozy Kitchen
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 tablespoons buffalo hot sauce
  • 1 packet ranch seasoning
  • 1 cup crushed Town House crackers
  • Additional crackers or veggies for dipping

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Form into a ball. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate until time to serve.
Remove the cheese ball from the refrigerator, unwrap from the plastic wrap. Place the crushed crackers in a shallow dish and roll the cheese ball in them, pressing firmly to adhere the crushed crackers to the outside.
Serve with crackers or veggies for dipping.
