How fun is this carrot shaped low-carb Easter cheese ball? I love how festive it is and it’s a breeze to make!

I’m a sucker for a good cheese ball, it’s one of those things that I look forward to at every holiday party but I typically never make them just for the heck of it. That may have to change!

This cheese ball is packed with crispy bacon, bell peppers, green onion, and cheddar cheese. Yum! The cheddar makes it perfectly orange, no weird food dyes needed! Serve this up with your favorite keto crackers or sliced fresh veggies.

The parsley should be on the other side of the carrot, the round side. The pointy side (small)  is what is in the ground. Otherwise, this is a darling cheese ball. I’m definitely trying it!

I can see that too now that you said it but I think the shape is more "cartoonish" so overall it's more round than pointed 😊
