Cheeseball Wreath with Pretzel Dippers

You can use your favorite cheeseball recipe to accomplish this festive take on the classic crowd-pleasing appetizer. If it’s not during the holidays, simply use a bowl or plastic wrap to shape your mixture into a ball. For football season, you can create mini football shapes or one large one. We like to keep the cheeseball mixture itself pretty simple, because the seasoning of our sourdough pretzel nuggets add so much flavor when you use them as dippers. Lemon Pepper, Garlic, and Chesapeake varieties are also delicious dippers for this recipe. Each brings its own flair and flavor profile. Choose the one that best suits your taste buds and enjoy!

    Cheeseball Ingedients
  • Line a bundt pan with plastic wrap.
  • Add cheeseball mixture into bundt pan and press to ensure the wreath takes shape and holds together.
  • Chill for at least one hour.
  • Remove the cheeseball wreath from the bundt pan by flipping it onto your serving platter.
  • Place OMG! Pretzels in the center of the wreath and garnish with strips of red pepper to resemble a bow.



NOTE: It’s important to let the cheeseball firm up in the fridge for at least an hour and then let it sit at room temperature once you’ve unmolded it for at least 20 minutes so that the mixture is easily scoopable.
