Unwrap cheeses from packaging and place in a large bowl at room temperature to soften. Cover with plastic wrap. When soft, mix cheeses together until they are combined. I use a wooden spoon, spatula and some good elbow grease. Refrigerate a half hour or so until the mixture firms up.
Form into 2 balls and roll balls in diced walnuts. Wrap loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Remove from refrigerator 1 hour before your guests arrive. Serve with crackers, Italian bread slices or pita chips.
If you're not a nut lover roll balls in finely chopped herbs like parsley or cilantro. And if you want to jazz things up a bit, add a tablespoon of jarred horseradish, or a small drained jar of pickled, chopped jalapenos or even a teaspoon or two of Worcestershire sauce.
