I made this for Christmas appetizers and it was a HUGE hit with adults. I served it with a late harvest Semillon and it was wonderful...three people requested the recipe!

I made this for a football party and ended up throwing most of it out. It didn't look appetizing, people tried it but that was about it.

I made this at Christmas and used it at New Year .. it was really lovely. I used organic blue cheese and butter, and Vintage Port from the holiday dinner. It was wonderful and I will use it again.

I wasn't crazy about this recipe, and judging by the fact that it wasn't eaten much at my holiday party, neither were my guests. It turned out an odd gray color, and the flavor was OK but nothing special.

I toasted the nuts too. It tasted fine - just looked really unappetizing - so I would not make again.

I did not care for the look or flavor of this. I really dont know what I did wrong and I followed the directions exactly making recommended modifications. Not good.

I have made this several times. It is always a huge hit with guests.

Did not look appetizing at all. Would probably go over better in a closed-sandwich. Also, tasted just like blue cheese to me.
