I made this on Christmas eve and it was devoured in 0.5 seconds. I have to admit they were extremely delicious, the addition of jalapenos, crispy bacon and dried cranberries is life changing!

Here’s the recipe.

Jalapeno Popper Cheese Balls

1 cup cream cheese, room temperature

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated finely

1/2 teapsoon mustard powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

Handful of finely chopped chives

Salt and pepper to taste


6 rashers finely chopped crispy bacon

1/4 cup finely chopped jalapenos

1/4 cup finely chopped dried cranberries

1. Mix in all the ingredients for the cheeseballs.

2. Roll into balls and refrigerate for a minimum of an hour to firm up.

3. Mix together all the ingredients for the coating and roll the cheeseballs in them until fully coated and serve immediately.
