I call this recipe "The Brain" when it is presented it sort of looks like a brain, I'll admit it, it can be kind of intimidating if you haven't ever tried it before but once a person tries it, they're hooked!

  • 1 Package Hidden Valley Ranch Original Dip Mix
  • 1/2 Cup Mayo
  • 16 oz Shredded Cheddar Cheese (room temp)
  • 2 Packages Cream Cheese (room temp)
  • Real Bacon Bits
  • Combine in a large bowl (Yep, The Pampered Chef "Classic Batter Bowl" is my bowl of choice here) the dip mix, mayo, and cream cheese, mix with an electric mixer
  • Mix in the shredded cheddar
  • Cover bowl with saran wrap (or your super nifty "Classic Batter Bowl" lid) and place in freezer for 30 minutes
  • Remove from freezer and divide into 2 balls of equal size
  • Roll the ball in bacon bits
  • Place the balls on small plates and wrap up tightly. Place in fridge until ready to serve
  • Serve with crackers, but beware, they are super addictive
Tara's Sidenote * It is imperative that you allow the cream cheese to reach room temperature or else it will be next to impossible for your electric mixer to mix it.
