    My dad loves his "cheese ball". So instead of getting store bought (as per usual), i used this recipe. I used toasted/chopped walnuts/ in addition to pecans & coated rather than combined (cause that's the way he likes it)! Went light on the parsley for him, but for me, my mom & sisters we liked it w/ more. Thanks for a great reminiscent homemade recipe for my dad! He loved it!!

    delicious and so pretty. I did add more like a tablespoon of beer. Such a simple appetizer to make. I served it with flat pretzels and crackers.

    I forgot to review earlier. This was great. Took it to a Christmas party and someone else had bought a store bought one and no one even touched the other one. Thanks!

    Followed the recipe except for the pecans (blech!) and this was great! Keeps for a long while too, were slowly chipping away at it. :)Thanks for the great recipe.

    Excellent! The spread had a nice soft spreadable texture and the nuts really enhanced the cheddar flavor. This is quite possibly the perfect bar cheese! ~Sue
