Bacon Cheese Pops

It's time for the "Big Game" and that means lots of food, drinks, and fun. Oh yeah....and some football! To help you celebrate I made these Bacon Cheese Pops! They are so good! They are kind of like your own little cheese ball, all to yourself. Plus they are cute! I used straws, that I cut in half, for my sticks. That way you can make them with team colors to show your spirit! I used an Herb and Spices Cream Cheese Spread, but if you have a favorite, use it!
These Bacon Cheese Pops are based on a recipe from my favorite grocery, Lowes Foods, with some small changes. Make these a day ahead of the game and be sure to refrigerate them!

Bacon Cheese Pops
(printable recipe at end of page)
1 tub Herbs and Spices Cream Cheese Spread
2 ounces chopped Bacon 
2 1/4 ounces chopped Pecans
Various Crackers
Sticks to place in pops

Cook and chop bacon. To get the necessary 2 ounces you will need to cook  pieces of raw bacon. You could also use bacon bits.
Chop pecans. If you buy them in the 2 1/4 oz. package, you still need to chop them smaller. They should be as small as the bacon bits.
Mix the bacon and pecans together in a bowl. Use a small scoop to form the cheese spread into balls. Roll the cheese ball into the bacon and nuts mix. You will have to help the pecans and bacon stick to the cheese. Patting the mix on helps it to stay.
I used straws for my sticks. Cut them in half for the appropriate size. Refrigerate the balls until you are ready to serve. I used this basket to make sure they did not flat. You could also place the straws in rice so they are elevated.
Serve on a platter with crackers. 
Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy the Big Game!
