Add the cream cheese, 1/2 cup bacon bits, sliced green onions, shredded cheddar, and hidden valley ranch mix all together in a medium-sized mixing bowl ) I like to add mine to my kitchen aide and mix with the paddle, It makes this recipe so easy!)
Mix the cream cheese mixture all together. During mixing, use a spatula and scrape the cream cheese from the sides of the bowl. You can also use the spatula to shape the cheese ball mixture into a round ball. (You can use your hands if you'd like but the rubber spatula works almost just as well and you don't have to get your hands dirty.)
Form the cream cheese mixture into a ball with a rubber spatula and place on a platter. If you can't get it smooth or into a symmetrical ball shape, you can use your hands.
Once the bacon bits are cool, you can grab a handful of bacon bits and cover the sides and top of the cheeseball.
Add a few sliced green onions and crisp bacon bits to the top of the cheese ball for garnish.
Cover with plastic wrap until needed and serve with your favorite buttery crackers and veggies. Enjoy!
