Maple-Garlic Cheese Ball

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by NurseJaney

This is one my DH makes for almost every Pitch-In Party. We have never had any left to take home. Any of your favorite finely chopped nuts would be fine. Parsley would work, if there are allergies.

I loved the simplicity of this recipe. I had no trouble with the mix......I used butter and full fat cream cheese. I didn't have any pecan's on hand so used a packet of chopped nuts from the supermarket which I always have in pantry. Made for Aus/NZ swap June 2011
