  • 2 Bricks Cream Cheese (Use full fat as it stands up better. Bring to room temp)
  • 1 Cup White Cheddar Cheese, shredded (1/2 of a brick)
  • 1 TB Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • 4 TB Dried Minced Onions (McCormick Spice)
ingredients to make a snowman cheeseball


  • 7 Peppercorns (2 for eyes and 5 for mouth)
  • 1 Tip of Fresh Carrot (for the nose)
  • Sliced Black Olives (for buttons)
  • 1 Red Fruit Roll-up (for the scarf)
  • 2 Pretzel Sticks (for arms)
  • 1 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese (to roll cheese balls in for snow)



Begin by bringing the cream cheese to room temperature. 

This step ensures that it will be easier to mix and achieve a smooth consistency for our snowman.

Mixing the Cheese Ball:

In a large mixing bowl, combine the room-temperature cream cheese and the shredded white cheddar cheese. 

To this, add the Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and the secret ingredient – dried minced onions. 

Mix everything together thoroughly, ensuring the onions are evenly incorporated. 

Using your hands might be helpful to achieve a consistent texture.

Forming the Snowman:

Once the mixture is well combined, divide it into two balls. 

One ball should be slightly smaller than the other, as it will be the head of our snowman. The larger ball will form the body.

Rolling in “Snow”:

To create a snowy appearance, place about a cup of grated Parmesan cheese on a dish. 

Roll both cheese balls in the finely grated cheese until they are completely covered, resembling snow.

Assembling the Snowman:

Position the smaller cheese ball on top of the larger one to create the snowman shape. 

Now, it’s time to get creative and decorate our snowman! 

Use peppercorns for his eyes and mouth, and a small piece of fresh carrot for his nose. 

For the buttons, you can use sliced black olives, more peppercorns, or even raisins.

Scarf Accessory:

To make our snowman extra adorable, let’s give him a scarf! 

Take the red fruit roll-up and measure it around his neck. 

Cut each end into points, resembling a scarf, and twist or pinch it at the neck to secure it in place.

Arms and Final Touches:

Now, it’s time to add his arms. 

Use two pretzel sticks and place them on each side of the larger cheese ball, giving the snowman his arms.
