I am always looking for good appetizers for parties or to make for my roommates. I came across this recipe and it turned out so good. It was so easy to make and it requires only 4 ingredients. Even though New Years is tonight, this would make a great addition to the food table, especially because of the little time it actually requires to make. Go make it now. You wont be disappointed.


2 (8 ounce) packages of fat free cream cheese, softened

3/4 package of ranch dressing mix

2 cups shredded Mozzarella Cheese

1 1/2 cups chopped almonds or pecans


In a medium size bowl, mash the cream cheese. Mix the dressing mix and the Mozzarella into the cream cheese (I mixed mine with beaters for about 2 minutes).  Shape the mixture into a ball. Roll the ball in the chopped nuts. Refrigerate covered (at least an hour) until ready to serve.
