CRUNCHY CHEESE BALL

Got this years ago from a gal I worked with, it's simple to make, and it's always a big hit! It's good with crackers, pretzels or pita/bagel chips.
I make a double batch for parties all yr round, and single about once a month just for us; I always have an empty plate left! It WILL keep about 2 weeks in fridge if covered with plastic, but there's usually nothing left to save! My family loves it, even the kids...
