Easter is under a week away and I still have no idea what I’m doing for the day. And if I’m being honest, I haven’t even shopped for Easter Baskets yet. One recipe I do know that I’ll be making is this Easter Carrot Cheese Ball. It’s literally one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make and probably one of the most delicious one too.

I truly don’t think recipes that taste this good can be any easier.
You just need cream cheese, some sour cream, onion powder, garlic powder and cheddar cheese.

Only this time it’s a carrot shaped cheese ball. It’s fun. It’s festive and it’s easy peasy.

You can make to bring along if you’re visiting family or friends for the holiday. You can take it your child’s school or any office party.
It’s not just for Easter either. Maybe you’re hosting a bunny themed party for your child and looking for fun themed food. This Easter Carrot Cheese Ball would totally fit the bill.

HOW LONG WILL THE EASTER CARROT CHEESE BALL LAST
I’ve kept mine for 3-4 days in the fridge but honestly it’s never truly lasted that long. If I’m hosting a party, I’ll usually make it the day before.
When I just make one for us, it’s usually gone in a day or two.
HOW TO MAKE THIS 5-INGREDIENT EASTER CARROT CHEESE BALL
Earlier when I said this Easter Carrot Cheese Ball was easy to make, I wasn’t kidding. First you’ll need your ingredients.
- 2 packs of cream cheese
- Sour Cream
- Garlic Powder

- Finely shredded Cheddar Cheese (just grab a bag or shred yourself.)
Before you get ready to make this recipe. Grab your cream cheese fro the fridge and let it sit out on the counter for a little bit. Room temperature cream cheese is easier to work with.
EASTER CARROT CHEESE BALL RECIPE
Bring a little fun to the table with this easy to make Easter Carrot Cheese Ball.
- 2 - 8 oz. packages of cream cheese
- 1/3 cup of sour cream
- 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
- 1 bag of finely shredded Cheddar or Mexican Cheese Blend
In a large bowl combine the softened cream cheese, sour cream, spices and 1 cup of the cheddar cheese. Stir until everything is combine.
On a piece of wax paper, scoop your cheese mixture and shape into a carrot shape.
Top with remaining shredded cheese and gently pat it into the cheese ball.
Place in fridge for a few mintues to help harden it up a bit.
Gently remove carrot shaped cheese ball from the wax paper and place on serving tray.
Add some greens (what you have on hand can work) to the top. I used Arugula because that's what I had on hand. You could use actually greens from carrots, herbs, etc.
Serve immediately or refridgerate until you are ready to serve.
