Gave as Christmas gifts this year. I like a little spice so I upped the horseradish by a teaspoon - would add another teaspoon next time, and perhaps a little more pepper and vinegar. Great recipe.

Great recipe. Toasted pepitas or sunflower seed kernels are a good substitute for a nut-free appetizer.

This recipe is fabulous and has become one of our go-tos for several years now. It's always a hit whenever we serve it. Highly recommend! I'm not a walnut fan, so we swap an equal amount of pecans for the walnuts in the recipe and it's just as tasty!

Very tasty! I have problems with lactose intolerance so made it with lactose free cream cheese and lactose free cheddar, regular gruyere and parmigiana reggiano and turned out great. Our guests loved it.

I love cheeseballs! I make mine individual (about the size of a big olive) and put a pretzel stick in each one. This way, a big cheeseball won't get that gnawed at look. Plus the pretzel sticks mean no errant toothpicks around the house.

I've seen the individual ones before, but love the pretzel instead of a toothpick. Thanks.
