    Yield: 16 Servings

    1 lb Extra-sharp cheddar; grated
    - or crumbled, room temp
    8 oz Cream cheese; room temp
    4 oz Treasure Cave bleu cheese
    - crumbles, room temp
    2 tb Mayonnaise
    1 ts Colman's mustard powder
    1 ts Worcestershire sauce
    1/2 ts Salt
    2 oz Dry red wine

    Cream the cheddar, bleu cheese, cream cheese, mayo,
    mustard, Worcestershire, and salt in a mixer bowl and
    beat at a low speed until well mixed.

    Using a spatula fold in the 1/2 cup of chopped nuts and
    the red wine. The nuts and wine shold streak through
    the cheese. When the nuts and wine are combined into
    the cheese put the result onto a sheet of waxed paper
    and use your moistened hands to roll into two balls.

    Roll the balls in the coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans
    until well covered. Wrap in cling film and place in ice
    box until serving time.

    Serve with Ritz crackers or other snack crackers of your
    choice. ENJOY!

    Makes two nice-sized cheese balls.

    This recipe will use up an entire 16 oz box (4 tubes) of
    Ritz crackers.
