This cheese ball is great for any football or Superbowl party. Its really easy to make, it tastes great, and makes a nice themed appetizer. This can also be made in any shape, in a ball, or whatever shape you need for the party that you are hosting. Also the fact that it is covered with bacon bits doesn't hurt either! This was really good served with Wheat Thins, but any cracker would work. This tastes really good and I plan on making it again.
