My office always wants me to bring this anytime we have a pot luck!
1 [8 oz] pkg cream cheese
1/2 c margarine
1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing mix
1-2 cups shredded cheese [M. Jack, Colby, Cheddar- it doesn't matter]
1/2 c. crushed walnuts, slivered almonds, chopped peanuts or whatever
Combine softened cream cheese, margarine and seasoning pkt. Mix until well blended. Stir in cheese. Put chopped nuts on wax paper. Shape into ball and then roll in nuts. Wrap up in wax paper and then foil. Chill. Serve with crackers.
This can make 1 large or 2 small. Store in fridge.
