    Patty-cake's Note:

    I'm not a big fan of cheese balls but my stepmother won me over with this version that she makes. Full of flavor and sooooo easy to make I feel guilty when people rave about it.

      Delicious! I whipped this up to share with a friend who was going through a sad time - I think it even cheered her up a bit! I did split it in half, making 2; one to share and one to enjoy myself! Don't tell! This was easy, a little different than most of these type recipes and I usually have the ingredients on hand. Thanks for sharing, Patty-cake!
