Instructions
  1. Mix cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic powder, salt and Worcestershire sauce together in a bowl with an electric mixer until completely blended.

  2. Place the cheese mixture in the refrigerator to harden to make it easier to roll up into balls. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

  3. Take the cheese mixture out of the refrigerator and place the cheese mixture onto a sheet of waxed paper or parchment paper and form it into the shape of a football.

  4. Decorate the cheese football with the Chedz sticks (this is the fun part!) until cheese is fully covered.

  5. To add "laces", take a slice of mozzarella cheese or any preferred white cheese (even a stick of string cheese will work) and cut it into thin slices. Cut one long slice for the center of the football and smaller slices for the laces. Place the long slice horizontally along the center of the football, then arrange the small slices horizontally on top.

  6. Add the remaining Chedz around the football on the serving platter so guests can use those for dipping.

Instructions
  1. Lay salami slices flat on surface.

  2. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese on each salami slice.

  3. If you prefer to use cheese slices, cut cheese into quarters and put on each slice of salami.

  4. Put a Chedz stick on each salami covered with cream cheese.

  5. Alternatively, put a Chedz stick on each salami covered sliced cheese.

  6. Roll-up each salami into a log like shape. If using cheese slices, roll them carefully as it is thicker and the Chedz can break.

  7. Optional: Add a green olive on each salami roll and insert a toothpick in the middle. If using sliced cheese since the rolls are thicker, ensure that toothpick is inserted through the seams as pictured in order to hold the log shape. When placed upright, you can push the salami roll down further.

  8. Optional: If you do not prefer green olives, you can opt to use other toppings such as cranberries or whatever you desire. Or, leave it off entirely.
