I discovered a new appetizer recipe that will be perfect for me – and those like me – who will be following a low carb diet in the New Year.  It’s a recipe for Savory Mini Cheese Balls and I found it on Walmart’s website.  These cute little cheese balls are made with Kraft Philadelphia cream cheese, fresh herbs, dried cranberries, delicious Planters pecans, and poppy and sesame seeds.

Making them is really easy.  Really.  If you can chop nuts, cranberries, and herbs, then you have the hardest part of making these tasty appetizers in the bag.

Instructions

  1. Place two tablespoons of sesame seeds, one teaspoon of poppy seeds, and one garlic clove (diced) into a small bowl and mix well.
  2. In another bowl, combine two tablespoons of finely chopped fresh parsley, 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves,one teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary, along with one garlic clove (diced).  Stir well.
  3. In a third bowl, combine 1/4 cup finely chopped dried cranberries and two tablespoons finely chopped PLANTERS Pecans.

Then you need to take one and a half blocks of Philadelphia Cream Cheese and cut it into six pieces.  Roll each piece into a ball.   Roll two balls, one at a time, into each of the bowls of toppings.

Serve them with crackers (for those not worrying about carbs) and some celery (for those who are carb counting).

The cream cheese combined with the toppings make delicious appetizers.  A nice feature about them is that you can make them ahead of time and place them in the fridge.
