Easter Appetizer: Chick Cheeseball Recipe

My friend Erica made the CUTEST cheeseball (well, I’ve seen some other cute cheeseballs in my day, but this is the cutest Easter one I’ve seen to date) for us and you’re going to want to make it for your Easter guests (or to bring to your hosts). It’s so cute and I’m happy to say it’s savory not sweet- I feel like we all have enough sweets on Easter…although we LOVE making our Lamb Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast!
