Ranch Cheddar Cheese Spread

Years ago some friends brought over this cheese spread with crackers as a neighbor Christmas gift. Now, we've given and received so many neighbor Christmas gifts over the years and there are few that stand out as much as this. It was so addicting, I think we stood by the door and ate almost the whole thing before it made its way to the table. Since then I've brought it to plenty of parties and served it on multiple occasions and every time without fail someone asks for the recipe. I was really sad when we moved to New Zealand and discovered that they don't sell dry Ranch dressing mix. You better believe it was on the list of things we brought back when we visited the states just so I could make this dip! I've shared it with several friends here and one friend in particular is determined to create a homemade version of the dry ranch so she can make this regularly. I'll update the recipe once she finds a good variation! Until then, enjoy. And if you haven't settled on a neighbor Christmas gift this year, might I suggest rocking their world with this?

1 pkg cream cheese
¼ C sour cream
1 C shredded mozzarella
1 C shredded cheddar
1 Pkg dry Ranch dressing mix

Soften cream cheese then mix all the ingredients together and form into a ball. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with crackers.
