“Serve this black cheese ball with blue corn chips or dark rye toast for a ghastly presentation. It's punchy, just like you'd expect cheese of the dead to taste. You can find black sesame seeds at a reasonable price at most Asian markets.”

Directions

  1. In the container of a food processor, combine the Cheddar cheese, sour cream, butter, horseradish, hot mustard, chipotle sauce, garlic and port wine. Pulse until smooth. You can use a potato masher in a large bowl but it will take longer.
  2. Line a bowl with plastic wrap, and fill with the cheese mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  3. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat just until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Gather the plastic wrap around the cheese mixture and form into a ball. Remove the plastic wrap and roll the ball in sesame seeds to coat. Place in the center of a platter and surround with your favorite chips or crackers.

Great recipe for a cheese ball. Be creative I sculpted mine into a rat and used the left over port to create a simple raspberry port sauce.. I uploaded the pic! It was a hit!

Wow, this is an excellent recipe for any time of year! I used poppy seeds and served with water crackers and black grapes for our Halloween party.

This is a yummy appitizer in an awesome presentation. A few additions I made were (1) dropping a few drops of green food coloring into the food processed. (2) Throwing a few plastic bugs/snakes that I found in the toy box into the dishwasher and them positioning them around/ on the cheese ball. I even won 1st place at a Halloween party last year! Thanks for your awesome recipe and great idea!
