Whether forming this in a ball or a log, this mix is sure to please. It's definitely a crowd favorite here.
1 bar of cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded cheese
1 package dry onion soup mix
2 tbsp sour cream
1/2 cup finely chopped cashews (optional)
Mix cream cheese, sour cream and onion soup mix until blended. I use an electric hand mixer. Fold in the shredded cheese with a spatula. Shape it into either a ball or log and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate a couple hours, best if overnight. Unwrap log and roll in cashews, firmly press cashews into the ball/log to secure
Bella's Additions ;
Use leek dry soup mix for another variation
Use 1/2 the soup mix for a lighter taste
Breton and Vegetable Crackers are best.. but you can use anything.
