If you’re like me and probably have never finished a real Rubik’s cube, completing this cheesy-take on the original will be rewarding to no end. Well, that is until you eat it. Feast your eyes on the easiest and cheesiest Rubik’s cube you’ll ever finish… especially once it’s in your belly.
Below you’ll find the list of cheeses I used for this specific recipe, but you can mix and match up flavors however you’d like. To save some money, I mixed and matched roughly 6 oz. of six different cheeses (instead of 9), and had plenty leftover for both more Rubik’s cheese cubes, and to set out as bites for nibbling.

1. For bite-sized cubes, measure 1/2-inch squares. (In retrospect, for a centerpiece cube, I would measure them to be 1 inch!)
2. Cut at least nine equal-sized cubes of each cheese. You’ll have plenty leftover!
3. Build your cube by alternating the cheeses. In true Rubik’s fashion, you’ll be done when there is nine on each side.
4. Serve with contrasting, delicious pumpernickel sliced bread.
5. Share with all of your friends, and via your social networks. Everybody will be envious of your nerd cheese!
