Holidays are all about family time and delicious smells! However sometimes the holiday smells can get over-powering which is why I love Febreze Home for the Holidays Collection! Febreze truly eliminates odors, so houseguests only notice the fresh holiday scents rather than potentially something that I burnt in the kitchen or normal household odors from cats, boys, and/or ingredients like garlic, onion, or fish for example. Thanks to the Febreze Holiday Collection 2014 scents your home could greet your guests with scents of Frosted Pine, Vanilla Latte, and Apple Tart!

Now that we have Febreze to help us tackle any unexpected or over-whelming smells Join me to learn how to make a festive pinecone cheeseball recipe! This may look complicated but if you can make a cheeseball you can handle this Pinecone cheeseball recipe!


 Here’s some step by step pictures to help you create the right shape/detail for this cheeseball masterpiece…

First you shape the cheese mixture into a cone


Then you place the almonds as shown. Once you have completed a row or two then you use your hand to shape the almonds down. This gives the most realistic look rather than just placing almond on it. Keep in mind that the rows need to be tightly spaced. At the end, you can use your hand to mold the almonds into the perfect look if some don’t look exactly how you want!

Now it’s time to make your own to enjoy your Pinecone Cheeseball with fresh veggies, crackers, etc…
