Instructions
  1. Blend all the soft cheeses and the butter with an electric mixer until smooth (you want to whip it for awhile on high)
  2. Mix in the shredded cheese, and rest of the ingredients until blended
  3. Refrigerate for at least an hour
  4. Form into balls, or log rolls, whichever you prefer
  5. Roll in chopped nuts (I use pecans and pistachios but you could use any kind)
  6. It makes about 4 cheese balls, depending on the size of your balls. It sounds much more involved than it actually is and is very easy and super tasty!
