This recipe comes from my good friend, Erin Dannelly. She makes cheese balls by the dozen and gives them to friends and family during the holidays. The cheese balls freeze well. If you choose to make them in advance to freeze, add the nuts prior to serving. You can make one large cheese ball or up to four small cheese balls per recipe.
