I recently took this cheese ball to a luncheon. The idea came from my Great Balls of Cheese cookbook, which I get inspiration from so often. I used a favorite cheese ball recipe found here, but you could use whatever is your favorite one. My recipe actually made enough for two smaller size trees.
Mix the cheese ball ingredients. If you'd like, you can use my favorite recipe, found here. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours.
Take out the cheese ball mixture from the fridge and shape into a cone(s), to resemble a Christmas tree.
Roll the ball into some dried parsley and place onto your plate. Decorate with pomegranates or dried cranberries for ornaments. You could also use red pepper or pimento, if you like. Use what you have on hand, is my motto. I used some almond slices, also.
Cut a star out of a yellow pepper and adorn the top.
Serve with your favorite crackers
