    Very good... is a lot of cheddar for the small amount of cream cheese so I almost doubled the amount of that and it was good - 12/31/09

    Really good, I didn't use the almonds, but followed everything else, yum, creamy - 11/28/13

  • I, too, make a similar dip, but I use fat free cheddar, leave out the almonds and onion powder, but add chopped green onions and cayenne pepper. - 11/11/13

  • I make a cheese ball that's similar to this, except it uses 2 pkgs of cream cheese, and add 1 TBS of minced green pepper, and onion. If you add minced onions I don't think you'd want to add onion powder, too. I roll mine in chopped pecans. Everyone loves it. - 2/22/11
