Cheese ball for with crackers or vegetable sticks

Straight out of the 70’s came the cheeseball.  This orb of cheesieness had many variations that depended on the maker and the ingredients at hand.  This recipe is a basis and should only ever form a guideline for your imagination and creativity to personalise for your guests.  We had these recently at our bubbles and balloons party made by my sister Anne-Louise and my sister-in-law Tristan.
