What a treat! This old-fashioned appetizer is given a modern and sweet update with our Original Creole or Creamy Pralines.

A sweet praline cheeseball is the perfect party dessert or appetizer when your sweet tooth is calling! Serve at your children’s sleepovers or after a relaxed dinner party with some strong cocktails.
