You Should Make Cheeseballs For Your Holiday Party 

Cheeseballs really live up to their name. Not only are they a literal ball of cheese, but there’s something kind of charmingly corny about them. Like a tacky Christmas sweater, they’re more class clown than class act—lovable, goofy, and charmingly unpretentious.
