I am looking for a recipe for an Orange Flavored Mix for a cheese ball/dip. Does anyone have one like this? Thank you.

I would suggest using cream cheese, powdered sugar and a packet of orange KoolAid powder.
IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A SWEET CHEESE BALL OR DIP DO THIS,---FOR DIP, SOFTEN AND WHIP CREAM CHEESE WITH ORANGE FLAVORED TANG DRINK MIX, THIN WITH A LITTLE MILK AS YOU WHIP. FOR CHEESE BALL, MIX CREAM CHEESE WITH SHREDDED AMERICAN OR CHEDDAR CHEESE AND TANG.ADD SOME POWDERED SUGAR TO EITHER IF NOT AS SWEET AS YOU WANT. FOR A NON SWEET CHEESE BALL, USE ORANGE ZEST IN THE CHEESE MIXTURE AND A FEW DROPS ORANGE FLAVORING OR KOOLAID( DRY OF COURSE.)THIS IS GOOD WITH CHOPPED DRIED CRANBERRIES AND FINELY CHOPPED WALNUTS EITHER SWEET OR NON SWEET.

Hazelnut-Orange Cheese Ball
ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 tablespoon grated onion
1 1/2 cup roasted & chopped hazelnuts
3/4 teaspoon grated orange peel
In a bowl, mix cream cheese and margarine together until smooth. Stir in onion, 1 cup hazelnuts and orange peel. Shape into a ball. Roll in remaining hazelnuts, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill until firm. Best if allowed to season overnight. Serve with crackers.
I recently made a salad using cottage cheese & sugarfree orange jello & mayo, it had a good flavor. Why not use cream cheese & the jello mix & a little pineapple juice as a thinner? Best of luck!!
