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!)


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
