mini yogurt cheese balls

I thought I’d share a healthier recipe with you guys today, lest you start thinking that all we do in our household is sit around slathering sticks of butter onto strips of twisted bacon and frying up mac ‘n cheese for breakfast! Although I don’t hold back when it comes to comfort food and delicious treats, we do try to balance it out with healthy snacks and meals, too. I love this appetizer because it tastes great, it’s healthy and it looks great on a serving platter!

    These look so good! Great for a cocktail party. I have been feeling like we need to clean up our eating act in the house,too! Way too much heavy food…these would be perfect to start with!

    Wow what an easy and great looking appetizer! I've never tried making a yogurt cheese before, that's super creative – I can envision all sorts of great ways to use this concept! Awesome idea!

    Wow – this sounds great! The title grabbed me as I consume a LOT of yogurt – so nice to know I can actually DO something with it! Thanks a bunch!

    These look wonderful! I'm planning a huge family dinner for the weekend and was thinking about what munchies to serve – now I know! I'm thinking I'll do some rolled in lemon and thyme and others perhaps in smoked paprika for fun colors. Question though… do you think it would work with low-far greek yogurt?

    Well, I'm all for a little healthy food every now and then but it better be good! These cheese balls look so delicious! Seriously! Hmmm I'll bet it's like fresh goat cheese which is wonderful and does go with so many flavors. Excellent recipe!

    Tried these today-sooo very good! I rolled mine in chopped fresh basil, parsley, a little garlic, and cracked black pepper. Ooooh yeah! Am going to have to get a lemon and try them with the lemon zest and garlic because that sounds incredible. Very yummy flavor-like a cross between cream cheese and feta-sort of a mellow tang.
