  1. In an electric food processor or blender, combine cream cheese, garlic, Worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce. Blend well. Add Cheddar cheese and process until the Cheddar is fine, but still very visible. Shape the mixture into balls or logs. Wrap individually in plastic wrap and place in the freezer.
  2. While the balls are in the freezer, combine the ground pecans and parsley in a shallow bowl. Remove the balls from the freezer and roll them in the pecan and parsley mixture.

I doubled the seasonings in this recipe because it tasted bland the way it's written. Served it as an appetizer for Thanksgiving. Everyone there loved it. Someone even said it was addictive. ...

This was a very good base recipe. I only used one package of cream cheese to make one ball, and added 1 tsp of dijon mustard and almost the same amount of the other ingredients so it would not t...

Everyone loved this cheese ball! It will be added to the holiday recipe list. I let the cheese and cream cheese get to room temp. before mixing and was able to fix it in no time. A+
