I love cheeseballs. In fact, I love them so much that I’ve made a cheeseball recipe for every season.
Cheese is one of those foods I enjoy eating year-round. As seasons change, I like to make cheeseballs that highlight flavors and shapes we associate with different times of the year. In this round-up post, you’ll find cheeseballs to delight the palate and the eye. There truly is A Cheeseball Recipe For Every Season.

Cheeseball Recipes for Fall:
Fall “Apple” Cheeseballs
These easy-to-make cheeseball recipes will wow partygoers with complex flavors, rich colorings, and authentic apple stem and leaves.
Get your spook on with these cute spider-shaped cheese treats. Before adding pretzel legs, simply roll each mini-cheeseball in black sesame seeds.
Sun-Dried Tomato Cheeseball (Pumpkin Shaped)
In this recipe, the basic cheeseball gets a mouthwatering and eye-popping makeover with dried tomatoes, seasonings, and breadcrumbs. It’s then shaped like a pumpkin, complete with a stem.
Everything Bagel Cheeseball (Pumpkin Shaped)
This is another cheeseball shaped like a pumpkin that will grab the attention of your guests. Rolled in “Everything But the Bagel Seasoning,” it’s a fan favorite.
Cheeseball Recipes for Winter:
Cranberry Bacon Walnut Cheeseball
A cheeseball that is beautiful and delicious! – Who could ask for more? You are likely to have many of the ingredients on hand and can easily put this one together on a cold wintry day.
Christmas Tree Cheeseball
I love decorating Christmas trees, so I reveled in adding sliced almonds, cherry tomato halves, and chopped parsley to this tree-shaped cheese creation. It’s even topped with a star cut from yellow pepper.
Cheeseball Recipes for Spring or Summer:
Mini Cheeseballs/Cheeseball Truffles
These Blue Cheese, Bacon, and Pistachio Cheese Truffles and Cheddar, Bacon and Ranch Cheese Truffles will look gorgeous in your party spread. The latter cheese truffles are rolled in bacon bits or finely chopped pecans for even more visual variety.
Each truffle contains enough cheese for three crackers. However, if you’re a fellow cheese lover, it’s a truffle per cracker!
This spicy cheeseball is a breeze to make for a spring or summer event. The crunch of celery or crackers nicely complements the heat and full-on cheddar flavor.
Sun-Dried Tomato Cheeseball
I love this recipe in the summer, too. Shaped like a regular cheeseball (not a pumpkin with a stem! as described above) and served with crisp veggies and crudités, it’s sure to impress the people at your next pool or patio party.
Everything Bagel Cheeseball
This cheeseball is fabulous for fall (as I shared above), but if you make it in a classic log or ball shape, it’s a perfect prelude to traditional summer cook-out fare.
I know these aren’t technically cheeseballs. They’re a block of cheese dressed up in a delicious way. You can assemble them in minutes, and your guests will rave for days.
*Red Pepper Jelly is easy to make. However, if you’re not inclined to make your own, you can find it at most grocery stores.
