More Smiles With Every Bite

Paw-Some Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball

Total Time:

1 Hour 15 Minutes



Ready to dip your paws into this insanely cheesy dip? And yes, the pun is very much intended. Because this holiday appetizer has just the right amount of cream, zesty ranch and savory bacon, your guests will wish this was the main course.



Beat cream cheese, sour cream and ranch seasoning until combined.

Add shredded cheddar and crushed Cheetos® Paws® and beat until fluffy.

Stir in green onions and bacon.

Transfer mixture to a sheet of plastic wrap. Mold into an oval shape that is 1½ inches high by 4½ inches across. Wrap tightly and refrigerate at least one hour.

Just before serving, unwrap cheese form and roll in crushed Cheetos® Paws®, pressing to coat completely.

Place form on a serving plate. Use a spoon to shape a paw print on the surface.

Serve immediately with a side of Cheetos® Paws®.
