Cheese ball bites are flavorful appetizers that are perfect for snacking or serving at parties. These mini cheese balls are loaded with everyone's favorite ingredients, and they are incredibly simple to make.
Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth. Add cheddar cheese, ranch dressing mix, bacon and green onions. Beat again until well blended.
Cover and chill in refrigerator for 20 minutes, or until set up enough to handle.
Roll into 1″ sized balls. Then roll in chopped pecans.
Chill until ready to serve. Just before serving, stick a pretzel stick into each cheese ball bite.
Make ahead: Roll them in nuts and refrigerate them. Add the pretzel sticks right before serving.To make a large version: Instead of rolling the cheese ball bites in crushed pecans, you can make a cheese log and roll it in the pecans, then serve with pretzels.
