Entertaining With Blue Crab Bay Crab Cheese Ball Kits

We all love the seafood dips of Blue Crab Bay, but if you need something more elegant, then try their Crab Cheese Ball Kits. We just got in some Blue Crab Bay Crab Cheese Ball Kits, just in time for Super Bowl. Also, we are less than two months away from National Cheese Ball Day, April 17. National Cheese Ball Day is a day to stuff yourself with cheese balls! Celebrate any day with cheese balls. Serve them after dinner, during your favorite television show, or whenever it's convenient. Blue Crab Bay's Crab Cheese Ball Kit comes with a tin of premium crabmeat, crab seasoning and a packet of crushed Crab House Nuts (Extra large gourmet Virginia peanuts cooked in peanut oil and seasoned with spicy Chesapeake Bay Seasoning). Each kit makes two 6.5 cheese balls.

Here's a tip about making cheese balls. Don't think big...large cheese balls have several problems. First, after a few people dig in, a large cheese ball looks entirely unappealing. Second, because large cheese ball sits around longer than smaller versions, there's more time for the nuts to get soggy by absorbing moisture from the cheese.

We are featuring Blue Crab Bay Crab Cheese Ball Kits in some new gift baskets: Tasteful Treats Galore! , a smaller version, Tasteful Treats ! with Blue Crab Bay Sting Ray Bloody Mary Mixer and one with Alpenglow Sparkling Apple Cider, and Party at the Beach!
