For a delicious NFL party snack, make a football cheese mold. You can make this mold before game day, and keep it in the fridge for two or three days. This is an easy and tasty snack that your guests will enjoy while watching a football game. You can buy your ingredients at your local grocery store.
What You'll Need:
3 Pounds of Cheddar and Pepper Jack Cheese
Whipped Cream Cheese
Block of Regular Cream Cheese
Cheese Grater or Food Processor
Seasonings: Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Oregano
Large Mixing Bowl
Large Serving Platter
Picture of a Football
Crackers, Pretzels and Chips
Bounty Paper Towels
To make this fun NFL party snack, you will need a large workspace in the kitchen. Have plenty of Bounty paper towels to clean up as you go along.
Finely grate the cheese and blend with a container of whipped cream cheese. Use your hands to blend the mix well. Add all the spices and seasonings, and mix thoroughly. You can use any of your favorite spices and herbs.
To create a close resemblance to a football, looking at the football picture use your hands and mold the cheese until you are satisfied with the shape. Be sure to do this on the platter you are going to be serving the mold.
Using the white solid cream cheese, cut strips with the Popsicle stick and lay them on top of the mold. These will be used for the stripes and lacing.
Cut strips of the green onions and set them around the bottom of the football. They will represent grass. Set out bowls of crackers, pretzels, and chips.
Clean up any mess with soap, water, and Bounty paper towels.
