These are so cute and bite-sized, they might be even more popular than traditional marshmallow chicks! You can use any cheese ball recipe. I used one of the ready-made mixes from Weavers. Adapted from Hungry Happenings.

Shredded yellow cheddar cheese
Sliced yellow cheese or carrot slices for feet and beaks
Pieces of black olives or black beans for eyes
Shredded sharp white cheese for “straw”
Round crackers To make the cheese ball, I combined:
2 8-ounce blocks of cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons butter
1 package Wildwood BLT Dip and Cheese ball Mix (delicious!)
After I mixed up the cheese ball ingredients, I rolled it into small balls and covered these with shredded cheese. Then I added eyes, feet and beaks.
I set each chick on a round cracker, arranged them on a plate, and covered the plate with white shredded cheese to look like straw.
