  1. Prepare the Cream Cheese: In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add the softened cream cheese. Ensure the cream cheese is soft enough to mix easily.
  2. Add Seasoning: Pour the Bacon Horseradish Seasoning Dip Mix into the bowl with the cream cheese.
  3. Mix Ingredients: Using a hand mixer or a sturdy spoon, blend the cream cheese and seasoning mix together until thoroughly combined. Ensure there are no lumps and the seasoning is evenly distributed.
  4. Form the Cheeseball: Once mixed, scrape the sides of the bowl and gather the cream cheese mixture into a compact ball. Use your hands to form a smooth, rounded ball.
  5. Coat the Cheeseball: Place your choice of finely chopped nuts or shredded cheddar cheese on a flat plate. Roll the cheeseball in the coating, pressing gently to cover it completely. Turn the ball as needed to ensure it's fully covered.
  6. Chill: Transfer the coated cheeseball to a piece of plastic wrap, wrap it tightly, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to firm up. This will make the cheeseball easier to slice and enhance the flavors.
  7. Serve: Remove the cheeseball from the refrigerator about 15 minutes before serving. Place it on a serving dish surrounded by your choice of bread, chips, raw vegetables, or crackers.
  8. Enjoy: Serve the cheeseball as a flavorful and inviting appetizer at your next gathering or enjoy it as a tasty snack anytime. This Bacon Horseradish Cheeseball is perfect for parties and can be prepared in advance, making your hosting duties much easier!
