World's Yummiest Cheeseball

This recipe comes from a lady in the church I grew up in.  Times have changed and the same cheeses aren't always available, so it's more like a cheese spread when you use alternatives.  Regardless, it is highly requested and a must-have at Christmas in our family.  The Roko Blue cheese is definitely seasonal.  So if you want to try this before next Christmas, you might want to look for it in stores quickly.

{I don't have a picture of the Cheese Ball since it gets eaten so fast!  Hoping to make another one before the season ends.  Maybe I'll remember to take a picture.}

Cheese Ball

1 - 8 oz cream cheese *
1 small jar Kraft Roko Blue cheese spread
1 small jar Kraft Old English Sharp Cheddar
1 cube beef bullion
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
chopped nuts

* Set out cheese for a couple hours to soften

Dissolve bullion in 1 tablespoon of hot water in a medum bowl.  Add garlic powder.  Mix in cheeses.  Shape into a ball and refrigerate until hardened.  Roll in nuts.  (Alternately, scoop into a serving bowl and sprinkle with nuts.)  Serve room temperature with crackers. 

We like to serve it with Aldi brand "Ritz" and "Club" crackers.  I will sometimes use a cheddar cheese (comes in mild and sharp) that starts with a K.  It comes in a plastic cup with a blue lid.  Will try to remember to write the name down.  I have never tried to make the cheese ball with an alternative blue cheese because it's a spread and I haven't found any other spreads.
