These cheddar-carrot balls are perfect as an after-school snack that's fun for kids -- and a guilty pleasure for adults.
- 4 ounces cold cream cheese (1/2 bar)
- 2 ounces yellow cheddar cheese, finely grated (1 cup loosely packed)
- 1 carrot, finely grated (1/2 cup)
In a medium bowl, with a wooden spoon, combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and carrot. With moistened hands, gently form 12 balls, each equal to 1 level tablespoon of mixture. Serve or refrigerate, covered with plastic wrap, up to 2 days.
