  • 16 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds chopped
  • Pretzel sticks


  • Add the cream cheese to a large bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder and mix until fully combined.
  • Using a spoon, scoop out pieces of the mixture, about one tablespoon in size, roll into balls, then transfer to a large plate.
  • Add the chopped Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds to a bowl. Toss each cheese ball into the chopped almonds, making sure to gently press the almonds into them so they will stick well.
  • Transfer the cheese balls back to a plate, cover, and refrigerate for at least 20-30 minutes or until firm.
  • If using the pretzel sticks, insert one into each cheese ball just before serving.
  • Serve with crackers and enjoy!
