A few weeks ago I hosted Bunco and when it’s the hosts turn, they have to provide all of the food and beverages for the event; which is for twelve people. Since I had February, I wanted to keep with a red theme and came up with this Rosemary Chianti Cheese Ball.

Rosemary Chianti Cheeseball

Cheese Balls are deliciously quick and so easy to make.  For this one, I used cream cheese, Jarlsburg cheese, fresh chopped rosemary and a dry Chianti wine.  They only take 10 minutes to prepare; however, they need to be chilled for at least 2 hours in order to set.

My guests all loved this Rosemary Chianti Cheese Ball and I served it with crackers, but you could also use sliced French or Italian bread. I think I’ll try making this again for Christmas or New Year’s Eve too. If you’re looking for Bunco ideas for March, check out my Irish Bunco post from last year. ~Enjoy!
