Garlic herb cheese spread

I got this recipe from a friend, who came up with it when trying to replicate an expensive mix she had tried.

The mix makes a fantastic cheese spread. The great thing is you can prepare a large quantity of the dry mix to keep on hand for a quick appetizer or dish to pass. The mix also makes a great gift to give to friends and family at the holidays that isn't perishable. I also use this mix in my stuffing, burgers, and added into a creamy sauce I make to go over fish. The possibilities are endless.
