While the cheese ball chills, toast the crumbs by placing the Panko crumbs, butter and dried parsley into a frying pan and heat, stirring constantly, while the Panko crumbs toast.
Remove from the heat when the crumbs have toasted and allow time to cool completely.
When the cheese ball has chilled and the Panko crumbs have cooled, roll the cheese ball in the Panko crumbs. Enjoy this yummy cheese ball with your favorite crackers or refrigerate until ready to serve.
