I absolutely love carrot cake, but I'm kind of picky. I *only *like carrot cake that is made with *real *cream cheese frosting; if it's made with a sugar-based icing like birthday cake, forget it! When I saw this Carrot Cake Cheese Ball in my new Fall/Winter Tastefully Simple catalog, I ordered it immediately. To prepare **Tastefully Simple Carrot Cake Crunch Cheese Ball Mix,** just mix the packet with 8 ounces of softened cream cheese and let sit in the fridge for a couple hours so the flavors meld. Before serving (optional), roll the cheese ball in the second packet, which is a crunchy coating. The flavor of this cheese ball is so much like carrot cake, you wouldn't believe it unless you tasted it yourself.** **It has flecks of real carrot throughout and has the exact flavors of rich carrot cake, without the actual cake. I love the creamy texture of the cheese ball combined with the flavors of cinnamon and warm spices, they go perfectly together. When I make this cheese ball, I use Tastefully Simple Twisty Grahams, which are graham cracker flavored pretzels, to use as dippers. If you like easy to make, delicious desserts, and you like carrot cake, **Tastefully Simple Carrot Cake Crunch Cheese Ball Mix** is a must-have!
