Cranberry Cheese Ball

Don't think that ALL the "appetizer" parties are gone YET....we still have the Super Bowl coming up. Seems that if you have a Super Bowl party....you need the snacks to go with it! This cheese ball is packed full of great flavor and it looks great on your table spread full of food. I like the sweetness of the craisins paired with the cream cheese...delightful pair! Mmmmmm!!

Cranberry Cheese Ball
8 oz. softened cream cheese
8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
1 T. milk
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1 1/2 c. craisins

Mix both cheeses together, beat until well combined. Add milk, salt and pecans. Mix well. Spread out a large piece of plastic wrap. Scrape cheese mixture onto plastic wrap. Using the plastic wrap to wrap around the sides, try to form a ball. Form as much of a ball as you can. Wrap plastic wrap around cheese ball entirely. Place in a cereal bowl. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm. When ready to serve, Remove cheeseball from plastic. Place craisins in pie plate. Roll cheese ball into craisins, using your hands to press them on the cheeseball. Place completed cheese ball on plate. Serve with crackers.
