If you love adding Swiss, cheddar, gruyere, or another favorite cheese to a food tray or party platter, these decorative and delicious ideas will delight your holiday occasion!
Edible Fondue Wreath
This wreath won't last long with the delicious mix of gruyere and Swiss fondue and bite-size baked rolls for dipping. This looks beautiful!
Snowman Cheese Sticks
Get some string cheese ready for winter! Simply tie a ribbon around for a scarf, create a top hat from black card stock, and use black and orange Sharpies to create the face and buttons.
Leaves of Cheese Platter
What a cute idea to make a fall-inspired cheese platter. Use leaf-shaped cookie cutters to slice the cheese and add crackers and a cranberry relish for some color.
Frosty the Snow-ball
This cheese ball is adorable! Mix together 16 ounces of cream cheese, 2 cups of shredded white cheddar, and a packet of dry ranch mix to form two round cheese balls. Wrap each ball in plastic wrap to refrigerate for 2 hours. Once chilled, sprinkle 1 cup of shredded cheese over the cheese balls for a frosty appearance. Add peppercorns and 1 small carrot for the face and buttons.
Cheese Lantern Ornaments
Make decorative cheese lanterns with baby cheese rounds! Use a low temperature glue gun to glue on ornament tops and add in silver and red beads to the bottom for tassel. Use a permanent marker or make slits through the wax wrapping for more decoration.
More fun with baby round cheese! Remove the wax covering and slice portions of the wax to be used as decoration. Use sliced cheddar cheese for the beak and sliced almonds for the feathers. You can also add cloves or mustard seeds for the eyes. Use cream cheese as a glue to hold the pieces in place.
Fiesta Cream Cheese Tree
Slice a package of cream cheese diagonally and set side-by-side to form a tree shape, then place a mix of salsa and fresh cilantro on top. A strip of green onion or celery stick makes the tree trunk, while a bell pepper can be cut into a star shape on top.
Babybel cheese becomes Santa once you add a paper belt around the wax wrapper. These are fun snacks to pack into your child's lunch or serve at a holiday party!
Fruit 'N Cheese Tree Platter
Just need a little creativity to make this dazzling hors d'oeuvre! Use cubed cheese, grapes, and parsley for the tree and a celery stick for the trunk.
Spruce Up A Cheese Ball!
Whole almonds turn a cheese ball into a pine cone! Add a couple sprigs of herbs to bring more life to the plate. This pine cone cheese ball is a beautiful winter display!
Christmas Tree Cheese Wedges
Simply sprinkle chilly flakes, broccoli sprigs, and top with a savory star! These cheese wedges are delicious and exquisite sides to bring to a party. Skew the wedges on a toothpick or satay stick.
Finish It Off With Cheese-cake!
Save room for dessert! This is the true meaning of "cheese" cake. Slices of cheddar cheese are cut into small triangular pieces to fit nicely on a slice of a triangular Triscuit cracker. Place cream cheese in a pastry bag and use it to keep the Triscuit, cheddar cheese wedge, Chicken in a Biskit cracker, and wavy stick Chex mix cracker together. Real cheese pie!
Creative And Deliciously Cheesy!
These adorable ideas are a great way to make a cheesy appetizer or snack look ready for the holiday season. So easy to make and fun to share with family and friends!
