I have been making this recipe for the past 30 years and my family looks forward to it every Christmas. I use black olives instead of green, roll these in chopped walnuts and serve with onion flavored crackers.

So Good! Perfect with a Martini. I thought that the blue cheese might be too strong, but I was so wrong. This recipe was a hit during our Football Party, the men wouldn't step away from the table. Thanks for the great recipe.

I make this with chopped balck olives. It is a hit everytime. This was the dish that showed me I love bleu cheese. I serve it with Triscuts. Always a hit

Don't forget the martini. This was great. I do recommend that you prepare a day before for all the flavors to mold together. The first day you could distictly pick up the butter flavor. As others have said, goes great with wheat thins.

This was really good! I'm an olive and blue cheese lover by themselves, but the taste together was very good! While eating this, I was thinking it would be good warmed in a crockpot and served more as a "dip" than a "ball". I'll have to try that next time. Thanks for the recipe!

This was great and SO simple! I love green olives and bleu cheese, so this was perfect. I made it the night before serving. My grocery store was out of fresh chives, so I subbed 1 TBS. fresh parsley instead. Other than that, made it per the recipe. I plan to make it again for Christmas Eve. Thanks for sharing this recipe--I know my cheeseball family will enjoy it! :-)

This was unbelievably good. I love to take pictures of the food I make from AR, but, we had already eaten half of it before I could get my camera out. I will try next time to be faster. Believe me something has to be really good for me to give a 5 star rating. I used a combination of Roquefort and an English cheese called Shropshire Blue. Wow. Otherwise I didn't change a thing. Thanks so much for posting this recipe.
