I love snacking on almonds and thought that Savory Mini Cheese Balls would be a perfect appetizer for our football night! I used finely chopped Smokehouse Almonds and Wasabi  & Soy Sauce Almonds to coat cream cheese and garlic balls! They were a hit! The guys were impressed that I made these in a jiffy and the presentation was beautiful.
