This went over very well at the party I took it to! It was tart, but it sat in the fridge for a little while and the extreme tartness went away. Tastes like a lemon cheesecake ball. I used one envelope of unsweetened kool-aid (which is less than one tablespoon of mix). I served it with the little honey bee shaped graham crackers. What a hit (and I didn't think it would be)!
I was pressed for time when I made this dish, so I didn't form it into a ball--i just mixed everything together and served dip! I served it with cinnamon graham cracker sticks and garnished with lemon slices, and everyone loved it. The mixture is delicious and refreshing with just the right amount of lemon flavor. This is my new dish to bring to parties!!!!
I'm glad you are enjoying this recipe. One thing I want to mention is when I submitted this recipe my suggestion was to use something like Countrytime Lemonade mix. Not unsweetened Kool-Aid.
This was a big hit when I brought it to an office party. I found it to be a little loose for rolling into a ball, maybe a little less butter or a little more sugar would stiffen it up. Also I rolled it in crushed pecans instead of graham cracker and served it with vanilla cookies. Very, very good.
I made this with pink lemonade w/ the sugar added. It worked great. The trick for me is to let it set up in the fridge the night before and then while cool you can form into ball or shape. I coated w/ gram cracker crumbs and served w/ them. The pink was a hit for a girls birthday party.
I followed the instructions exactly and ended up with a nice cheese ball to take to work. It went over very well and several people asked for the recipe. Don't panic if you taste it immediately after mixing. It is VERY tart but once it sets it has a perfect taste of lemon.
Amazing. My husband loves lemon flavor and I do not, but I LOVED this!! We offered it with a variety of crackers and my favorites were the big Wheat Thins OR sour cream crackers, strangely enough. Yes, the lemon was light and what I thought were contrasting flavors were actually complementary! Terrific recipe.
I used 1/2 TBS of lemonade mix instead of one and mixed with a squirt of real lemon juice and 1/2 tsp of lemon zest. I also replaced the bar of cream cheese with the whipped one and made it a spread. I then served with Anna's Ginger Thins which everyone loved!
