You will love the massive flavors from this simple spread, which takes no time to throw together (15 minutes!). Here in Minnesota, cheese balls are a staple at every party, pot luck, or family gathering. This recipe is so simple!

Plus, I went one step further and spooned them into lined molds for a prettier presentation. Serve with gluten-free crackers and breadsticks or simply spread over gluten-free bread for a tasty snack for the kids. You might want to double the batch because these go fast! Keep extra in the fridge just in case!

4. Add the ham and cheese into the bowl of seasoned cream cheese and mix well to combine.

5. Spoon the mixture into the lined molds, tapping down on the kitchen counter to remove any air pockets. Depending on the size of your molds, you may use 2 larger ones or 4 very small ones.
