Hi everyone!! It’s Susanne from New South Charm back again this month with a recipe I’m sure you’re going to love!

Recently we had a family gathering and I set out several appetizer. Ok, so honestly I set out waaaay too many appetizers including my personal favorites Garlic Parmesan Shrimp and these Honey Garlic Chicken Wings.

However, this Spinach Artichoke Cheese Ball was by far the favorite. How do I know it was the favorite you ask? Well, it was the only that was completely gone. Even the platter was scraped clean. It was that good.

While this cheese ball is really easy to put together I do have a couple tips to make it even easier. First, you’ll want to soften the cream cheese to room temperature. If you’re in a hurry you can dump the block of cream cheese in a bowl and pop it in the microwave for 10 second this should soften the cream cheese but not melt it. My second tip is to use wax paper to shape the cheese ball. For me wax paper is easier because the cheese doesn’t stick to the wax paper like it does with plastic wrap.

I served this Spinach Artichoke Cheese Ball with crackers but I think it would be great with tortilla chips or toast points. No matter how you choose to serve it this easy appetizer is sure to be a hit at your next party, game night, family gathering or just because you are a cheeseball lover like me. This will be a hit all the way around, especially with its fun and unique spin on the ever popular spinach dip!
