They may look as cute as holiday chocolates, but these mini cheese balls are made for those of us who love a little cayenne and sharp Cheddar on our party plate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rolling the roasted red pepper truffles in paprika overwhelmed the flavor of the truffle. Rolling the roasted red pepper truffles in paprika overwhelmed the flavor of the truffle. I used the chopped nuts. I adjusted the recipe just slightly adding extra cream cheese and cheddar which allowed for three varieties of truffles. The third I added garlic powder, chopped fresh dill and lime juice. They all went over wonderfully at a party I catered. They were requsted at another catered party. I will definitely continue to use the recipe.

Instead of the red pepper, I made one plain with just the cream cheese, cheedar and the spices and the other one I made with chives instead of onions. These were a big hit at my family's Thanksgiving get-together. Nobody could believe how easy it was to make. They decided that next year I would be in charge of appetizers. I paired it up with a dip that I made and everyone loveed them with wheat thins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These cheese balls were fun to make and very tasty. These cheese balls were fun to make and very tasty. I used the scallions for the whole mix instead of using half scallions and half roasted red peppers. I coated some of them with the nuts and the others with parsley, shredded cheese and paprika. They looked so colorful on the plate and everyone loved them! Will definitely make them again.

I make 3 cheese balls from the mix - one with the green onion, one with sesame seed and one with red pepper flake (for those who want and extra kick), I set them on a rectangle platter together and it gives a fun holiday red, green and white presentation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I made one big cheese ball instead of the little ones. I made one big cheese ball instead of the little ones. I used roasted red peppers for the entire thing. It was ok, but like so many recipes from Kraft, it needed some seasoning. I made the recipe exactly as written, but it obviously need salt. It didn't need much, but it definitely needed something.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I just made this and they tasted great! I just made this and they tasted great! However, the individual balls seemed too much for some guests. Next time I think I'll just make two large cheese balls rolled in pecans (one roasted red peppers and one green onion). That method will also cut down in the prep time for the appetizer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe for my family Christmas party. I made this recipe for my family Christmas party. Awesome! Everyone loved them and it was the perfect fancy cheese appetizer. I only used the pecans as a coating. I also served them with Socialables crackers. Lastly, I ended up with about 36 instead of 24. I will make them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this recipe! Loved this recipe! I made the balls smaller than stated in the recipe-so it wouldn't seem like so much rich cheese to eat. (We had lots of other appetizers as well) Toasted sesame as the topping was my favorite! This recipe could easily be cut in half, if you have a smaller gathering.
