Cheese ball appetizers are probably one of the easiest to make around the Holiday season.


  • 1 8oz package of Neufchatel cheese (room temperature)
  • 1 4oz package of part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup of slivered almonds
  • 3/4 cup of dried cranberries
  • Crackers for the cheese ball


  1. In a bowl mix together the cream cheese, mozzarella and cranberries until well combined.
  2. Place the cheese mixture into the middle of a piece of saran paper. Use the saran wrap to mold the cheese ball together and shape it into a ball.
  3. Then roll the cheese ball into the almonds. Store in fridge until ready to serve.
  4. Serve with any type of cracker, chips, or pretzels.

If using fat-free cream cheese it will be 3 points per serving.
