Since it's Friday, Fox 4 Morning News wanted to party! But first, we had to make a party food to eat. So, in celebration of July being National Pickle month, we decided to make something unique.

1. In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, chopped dill pickles, pickle juice, garlic powder and paprika until combined, then season with salt and pepper to tastes.

2. Form mixture into one large ball and serve with your favorite crackers!
