Serves 8-10

1 8-ounce brick cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup hot sauce
1 stalk celery, finely diced
1 carrot, finely diced
1/2 small red onion, minced
1 clove garlic, grated
2 cups pretzels
Chips, carrot sticks and celery, for serving


In a bowl, mix together cream cheese, sour cream, blue cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, hot sauce, celery, carrot, red onion and garlic.

Form the cheese mixture into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap to chill for at least 1 hour.

Place the pretzels into a bag and smash them with a rolling pin to make fine crumbs.

Just before serving, remove the cheese ball from the fridge and roll it in crushed pretzels to coat. Form it into a football shape, using a few thinly cut celery pieces to make stiches on the top so it looks like a football.

Serve with chips, thinly sliced carrot chips and celery sticks alongside.
