MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 24, 2014

"This recipe worked out perfect for me! The cheese spread actually is nice and thick and has a very good taste. However, I was looking for an appetizer recipe for a bowling party when I found this. I used a clip art template on-line and traced it on a piece of parchment and proceeded from there. It so easy and quick to make too. I think they will be happy with this at the bowling party. ty"

"This is really good and makes a lot. I also just made it into a ball and omitted the red pepper."

"I brought this to book club and it was a hit! I formed it into a ball instead of the pin and omitted the red pepper rings. People were still talking about how good it was at the next book club meeting."
