This cheese ball is perfect for parties because it’s easy to throw together ahead of time. All the comfort of a cheese ball but with an Asian twist: coconut, lime, ginger, and Sriracha almonds!
A few weeks ago my sister-in-law Sandi complimented me on my French braid. I was grateful but a little confused. “I started braiding my hair like 2 years ago, while living at your house even!”
“Yeah, but I mean, now it actually looks good.” Oh, so you mean that my hair has basically looked like a 4-year-old braided it for the last 2 years?? THANKS Sandi. You tell me now.
Does one genuine compliment today cancel out the two years worth of backhanded compliments you just dealt? PS, In totally unrelated news, I spent the entire morning YouTubing braiding tutorials.
Tomorrow we are headed out to Utah for Eric’s sister’s wedding. Which means that our fridge is purposefully empty. Which means that when I opened it to figure out dinner (way too late) last night, all I could see was a shining, glorious Asian cheese ball, and part of me said to myself, you can’t feed your children cheese for dinner, and then the other part said, it has almonds and carrots, that’s healthy. Dinner, DONE. No regrets.
This cheese ball is the stuff of dreams, guys. I know, I know, cheese balls are hard to take seriously because, well, they’re called cheese balls. Why couldn’t they have gone with cheese spheres? Well whatever, this is the cheese ball to end all cheese balls. Have I made you uncomfortable yet? Cheeseballcheeseballcheeseball
There is coconut cream mixed in, not to be confused with coconut milk. Coconut cream is thicker and solid at room temperature (see note). I love the undertone that the coconut adds. The chopped Sriracha Almonds are the cherry on top! Yes, that’s right, I said Sriracha Almonds. Awesome right?? They are SO good.
More dips FTW!
More tempting cheese balls!
