I try to make this recipe every Christmas . My family and friends love the cheese balls . I made this recipe this year and divided it into two balls. I gave one to my son and his family for a Christmas treat and I kept one for my husband and myself to enjoy..
This recipe comes from one of my favorite cookbooks "Company's Coming"
I hope you will give this recipe a try. It's simple and wonderfully tasty.
Please enjoy!
