Cream Cheese and Olive Pecan Bites | A twist on the popular cheese ball. Serving a cheese ball is one of my favorite types of appetizers but you (and me for that matter) can’t deny that everything is better small! These Cream Cheese and Olive Pecan Bites can be made into a small individual cheese balls but I love the presentation of the stuffed pecan halves. These appetizers are super easy to make and pack a punch of flavor. Perfect for entertaining at your home or to take to the office party.
Your guests will love the salty flavor of the olives, the creamy texture of the cream cheese and the crunch of the pecans. PERFECTION!!! 🙂 I love serving them for a ladies brunch, bridal or baby shower too.
