Cheese Ball Bites

Ingredients

  • 8 slices bacon
  • 14 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 c. freshly chopped chives
  • 1/3 c. finely chopped pecans
  • Pretzels sticks

Instructions

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, cook bacon until crispy, 8 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate, then finely chop. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, stir together cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic powder, and season with salt and pepper. Use a 1oz cookie scoop to form mixture into small balls and transfer to a parchment–lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm, 1 hour.
  3. In a shallow bowl, stir together bacon, chives, and pecans.
  4. Roll balls in bacon-chive-pecan mixture, insert a pretzel stick into each, and let come to room temperature 15 minutes before serving.
