Holiday Cheese Balls

I made these a couple years ago they are so cute (well I think they are)
I liked the variety and the color is very appetizing.
Perfect for the holidays.
Super simple too.

What you will need is:

2 packs of softened cream cheese
1 pack of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 tsp of garlic powder
A dash of cayenne pepper
1/4 cup of chopped roasted red peppers
2 sliced green onions
1 2/3 cups of chopped pecans
Sesame seeds
Crackers to serve

How to make the balls:
Beat the first 4 ingredients together.
Divide the mixture in half
Add the peppers to half of the mix and the onions to the other half of the mixture.
Mix well.
Chill in the fridge for a few hours
Now shape each mixture into about 24 balls.
Roll some balls into nuts
Some into chives
Some into cayenne pepper

Try sesame seeds too if you would like.
Place on a serving platter with crackers.

I'm sure you guests will love these!
