Do-Ahead
This is a great recipe to double. Serve one cheese ball right away, and keep the other on hand for impromptu entertaining. Cover and refrigerate up to 1 week. Cheese ball can be tightly wrapped and frozen up to 2 months. About 1 hour before serving, unwrap cheese ball and let stand at room temperature to thaw. Or thaw loosely wrapped cheese ball in refrigerator at least 8 hours.
How-To
To toast nuts, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350ºF oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
