Cheese Ball Beach Balls

1 3-oz. pkg. Cream cheese
1/2 of a 4-oz. pkg. (1/2 cup) Shredded Cheddar or Mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Sunflower nuts (seeds)
1/4 to 1/3 cup Grape Nuts cereal

Take cream cheese out of the refrigerator. Let it stand on the counter for 30 minutes so it will be easy to mix.

In a small mixing bowl place the softened cream cheese and the shredded cheese that you want to use. Mash the cheeses together with a fork until they are well mixed.

Stir in the sunflower nuts. Shape the cheese into 1-inch balls by rolling small amounts between the palms of your hands.

Put the Grape Nuts cereal in a cereal bowl. Roll each cheese ball in the cereal until it is coated.

Eat right away or store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat them.

Yield: 12 balls
