    cricketbird's Note:

    I love this from the store, but too expensive. I found 1 recipe for this, and it didn't work. I messed around with it until it was what I wanted. The way my staff at work were acting, they think this is the best. I do too, and hope the people at recipezaar enjoy it as well.

      So very good. Was a hit at the annual Glogg Christmas party. One person wrote they reduced the port wine from a bottle to just under a cup! Where does the recipe say a bottle? Unless you drink everything while making it instead of a cup.

      Added 1T to cheese and butter mix before blending all together. Reduced the port from 1 bottle to just under a cup, a delicious syrupy scant cup and and 1/2 of the port reduction in 1/2 the cheese mixture. Roughly mixed the 2 cheeses and chilled before rolling in toasted crushed pecans and then chilled firm. Deep scary looking purply cheese - not the prettiest but OMG delicious. Perfect for Halloween pumpkin carving party next to the braised partially peeled sliced tongue! Thanks for the great base recipe. Total keeper!

      My husband loved this recipe. I only used 1/4 cup of port and it made one cheese ball and two cheese logs. It has a nice subtle port flavor. I also made it two days ahead of time so the flavors could mingle while it refrigerated. I might try more port next time as it mellows out in the fridge with time.
