    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

      I made this for a last minute family barbecue and everyone seemed to love it. The only reason I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is that I served it as a Cheese Bowl, rather than ball. I don't think I refrigerated it long enough to get the consistency to be able to shape it, so I followed Twissis' method of doing it in a bowl, however it didn't seem to want to come out in a "ball" either so I just added the pecan/parsley mixture on the top and served in the bowl (see pictures). Maybe if you could add some more specific directions as to how long it should refrigerate to firm up properly? Mine was in the fridge for about 2 hours before I put it in the bowl, then another 3-4 after that but still didn't feel firm enough to safely turn into a ball that would stand on it's own. In case it makes a difference for someone else, I sued low fat Philadelphia cream cheese, Becel margarine (my mom and I think that was the problem since butter will harden more than margarine when cooled) and 100% pure maple syrup (I'm in Canada so we get the good stuff =) Other than the shaping issues, the flavour was great, not a whole lot of maple, but a nice sweetness that made it a bit different. I'll definitely experiment with this one some more!

      This is great and different than the cheese balls I'm used to. I love the bit of sweetness to this one. Made for the Aussie/New Zealand 12 Days of Christmas Recipe Swap.
