  • 8 oz block Cracker Barrel Aged Reserve Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries chopped
  • 1 cup chopped white chocolate melted (make sure you're using real white chocolate, not white morsels)
  • 2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs homemade or storebought


  • Using a fine grater, grate the entire block of Cracker Barrel Aged Reserve and mix in the chopped dried cherries, combining them by tossing it all around with your fingertips.
  • Take small spoonfuls of the cheese cherry mixture and shape it into a ball, rolling it in the palms of your hands.
  • Roll the cheese ball in the white chocolate, then roll in the chocolate wafer crumbs.
  • Refrigerate the cheese balls to harden up the white chocolate to a hard shell.
  • Drizzle the tops with extra white chocolate, if desired. Serve and enjoy!
