    ChefDLH's Note:

    This recipe was from Family Circle Magazine Dec. 2009. It was considered to be a healthy recipe choice for those having parties with lots of food and drink. I made them for a meeting and they were a hit. I think you have to serve them with other things because despite being healthy they are a bit rich. I like them as a great alternative to the usual cheese ball. The nuts give it crunch and the two cheeses with the three fruits was very unique. This is not for someone who doesn't like cheese though. Perfect for the holidays, New Year's parties or anytime you need a no cook appetizer. Enjoy! ChefDLH
