This Date Cheese Ball is a slightly sweet cream cheese ball laced with dates and rolled in pecans. No other sugar added. It’s easy, delicious, and a guaranteed hit at your next game night or party.
Dates are nature’s little sugar cubes, shaped like a miniature football and apparently soaked in God’s magic elixir. As you will see, dates provide the only sweetness in the recipe.
Normally, I don’t eat dates all by themselves. They are just too sweet and sticky. On the other hand, I love chopping and adding them to bread such as my Banana Whole Wheat Yeast Bread.
Serve this Cheese Ball with buttery crackers or go all out and make Homemade Graham Crackers.
Granted, making graham crackers are a little extra trouble but they are fun to eat and easy to make with my little Ziplock bag trick. Don’t miss it!
They make look rather plain and humble. But don’t be fooled. On the contrary, I’m predicting you won’t believe how fresh they taste compared to store-bought crackers.
That’s not all…
This Date Cheese Ball also benefits when served with fresh fruit. Since there’s not much color to the cheese ball itself, strawberries are at the top of my list.
