I love recipes that are naturally low carb! And this chick is so adorable, it will certainly be the star of your Easter or spring party! Oh, and I've added bacon to the filling because – well – bacon! The cheese ball itself comes together pretty quickly, and then you can be as detailed as you choose when it comes to the eyes, beak, feet, etc.
He's almost too cute to eat… almost!
How To Make an Easter Chick Cheese Ball
Combine room-temperature cream cheese, chopped cooked bacon, shredded cheese (I used mild cheddar) and black pepper together in a stand mixer on slow speed.
Spoon everything into a sheet of plastic wrap (cling film) and roll it into a ball.
Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to harden up. When the cheese ball is firmer, roll it in more shredded cheese.
Add the details like black olives for the eyes, and cut baby carrots for the beak and feet. You could even add a little tuft of feathers on its head!
Serve the chick cheese ball with some low carb crackers or veggies. Here are some ideas:
- Cucumber slices or sticks
- Dixie USA Corn Chips (which you can buy from Netrition)
