    I made this cheeseball for Christmas, and ever since then every time I go to a party, I bring this as the appetizer.. It is a HUGE hit.. ABSOLUTELY fantastic. a perfect balance of flavors.. I promise if you make it, you will LOVE IT!

    **this cheeseball is very hard.. So if you want your quest to spread it.. Set it out ahead of time**
