It is no secret that I love desserts. Actually I haven’t posted any desserts lately and it kind of has made me sad. I needed a break from all of the desserts that I ate/made over the holidays. Desserts are my favorite though. I am actually a picky eater when it comes to savory foods, but with desserts, I have never met a dessert that I haven’t like.
Because I love desserts so much I feel that a dessert is always needed at every party. That is why I love dessert appetizers, you get a dessert and appetizer all in one. Last year I made my first dessert cheese ball. It was one of the best desserts that I had ever had. I posted two Cheese Balls last year, the Funfetti Cake Cheese Ball and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Cheese Ball. They were both two of my favorite desserts that I have made and are both two of my most popular posts. I decided to make another cheese ball using one of my favorite flavor combinations, chocolate and strawberry.
This Chocolate Strawberry Cake Cheese Ball was so delicious. I loved the combination of the chocolate and strawberry flavors in the cheese ball. Plus there are actual strawberries in the cheese ball as well. Also this cheese ball is really fun, the sprinkles make this a great appetizer for a party. I brought this delicious cheese ball to a party and everyone thought it was so fun and looked fantastic. Everyone also thought the cheese ball tasted great. I used pink crystal sprinkles, but you can also use red or any other color you want.
Not only was the cheese ball really fun, the flavor was great. Neither the chocolate or strawberry flavor dominated and they both tasted great together. My husband loves my cheese balls and he said that this was his favorite one so far. These go great with vanilla wafers, graham crackers, or fruit. I think this would be great for a party or a really fun treat for Valentine’s Day. I know I plan on making this cheese ball again, it is now a family favorite!
