My mom came up with this one Christmas, and every time I share it people go crazy!  It’s a really good cheeseball, and super easy.  Go ahead.  You know you want to make it!  😉

1 8-oz bar cream cheese, softened
3-4 T muffaletta olive mix
chopped salami and ham (optional)

Spoon the 3-4 T of olive mix into a small bowl, being sure to drain as much oil off of the mixture as possible (I sometimes spoon it onto a paper towel and pat it dry.)  Blend the olive mix into the cream cheese, finaly shaping the mixture into a ball.  Roll the ball in the chopped salami and ham to cover.  Serve on a really cute platter with some fancy crackers and voila!  You’re the hit of the party!!
