Cheese Apple Dip

A good party dip, though as host you'll have to get it started as no one can really tell what it is just from looking, except that it looks like an apple, and no one wants to be the first to ruin its image. Once people realize it's a cheese ball, it goes quickly (at least in Taipei).
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz sharp cheddar, grated
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1/2 t cayenne pepper
  • paprika
  • one leaf (basil)
  1. Mix cheeses with garlic powder and cayenne pepper.
  2. Shape into ball and refrigerate at least 30 min.
  3. Smooth into apple shape. 
  4. Roll in paprika.
  5. Decorate with basil leaf.
  6. Serve with crackers or tortilla chips.
