Cheese

Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Cream Cheese or Mascarpone can be used in this recipe.

Instructions

  1. Beat the cream cheese, mascarpone, confectioners’ sugar and bourbon in a large bowl until blended. Fold in chocolate and cherries. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Spoon a third of the mascarpone mixture into a plastic wrap-lined, small bowl, about 5 ½-inches diameter x 2-inches deep. Wrap with plastic wrap. Spoon the remaining mixture into a plastic wrap-lined, large bowl, about 7-inches diameter x 2-inches deep. Wrap with plastic wrap. Freeze for 20 minutes.
  3. Unwrap each cheese ball. Transfer to a serving platter. Press coconut on balls to coat. Place chocolate-covered cherries for eyes, a gumdrop for nose and M&M’s for mouth. Arrange peppermint candies for buttons and licorice for scarf. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until serving.
  4. Serve with cookies.

Recipe Tip

  • No bowls? No problem! Shape a third of the mascarpone mixture into a small ball. Wrap in plastic wrap. Shape the remaining mixture into a large ball, and wrap in plastic wrap. Freeze for 20 minutes. Prepare the remaining recipe as directed.
