Snowman Blue Cheese Cheese Ball

One of the best things about cheese balls is that they can be made ahead of time, and that’s exactly why I love making this Snowman Blue Cheese Cheese Ball. It’s fantastic with just crackers or some fresh vegetable stalks and is absolutely adorable when served. Plus points for helping us get the kids to eat more veggies, too!

How Long Will Blue Cheese Cheese Balls Last?

Generally, this Snowman Blue Cheese Cheese Ball can last for up to a week in the refrigerator.

However, it’s important to keep an eye on them if you’re wanting them around longer than that as the texture may become harder over time or change in color due to oxidation. All things considered, cheese balls are best enjoyed at their freshest.

If you think you won’t be able to consume the whole cheese ball within a week, it’s best to freeze it as soon as possible after you prepare it. Wrap it in some cling wrap and store it in an airtight container. When stored this way, the Snowman Blue Cheese Cheese Ball can last for 2 to 3 months.
